Got some very nice work going on here. Here's my contribution. This should have been done a month ago but I stalled when my paint job went south and put it aside for a while. I started with the Revel Motor City Muscle 1:24 kit and painted and assembled it straight from the box except I added plug wires. I was looking for a simple build as a break from some longer projects and this kit went together very easily. Paint on the body and interior as well as primers were all Rustoleum rattle cans with Testors product used for all brush work. I was a little concerned about the decal stripes going down smooth but with a little Decal Set they laid down nice, even over the hood scoop. The finished paint job isn't as nice as I would like but I can live with it. Hope you enjoy it. Keep the faith.

some nice builds going on here , I'll join in when I've made a bit of space on the bench , I have a 66 GT350 and GT350 H in my stash so I feel a side by side build coming on .

Posted Image

I got the GT350 H off ebay , the body has been painted realy badly and has a finish like sand paper , other than that it is unstarted , I started rubbing it down , hopefully I can salvage it .

I think that it's safe to say that Phil has mastered the art of building Cobras. Another fine job!

I used Testor's Boyd's Alumina Yellow which was as close as I could get to pearlescent yellow with what I had on hand. It has a bit of a greenish tinge to it. I have found yellow can be a hard color to match.
More on this Cobra can be found Under Glass at

I really like the Gulf Stream Aqua you have used on your 69 Shelby. What paint is that?

Ok, You got me Phil. I used Testors Bright Aqua Pearl lacquer, (Shhh, it's listed as a Chevy color), I thought it was a very good match for it.
