This build is exciting Wayne........What are you planning for a paint scheme or have you decided yet?


Thanks Daryl. I haven't pinned down the paint scheme yet. I have a few ideas but nothing solid yet.

Here's some more done. The trunk has been opened and will be finished at a later time. More framerails added throughout. I also added the dash panel from the Cobra kit and a sheet styrene panel behind the dash.

I've never seen a Cobra done in this style before. Very nice work.

Wayne, I have to say this one has been coming along nicely. I like how you have worked in the chassis, looks like it was meant for the car!

Can't wait to see what you have planned for the paint scheme.

Another mockup with a few added small changes. The front suspension has been setup with the right ride height. I also decided to go with a pair of Comp. resins wrinkle wall slicks. The wheels are Convos Pros painted black. I am also still racking my brain as to which way to go with the paint scheme.

Nice work Wayne....Unless you have a specific paint job in mind for those black wheels I really like the look of the polished wheels on this one but the choice is ultimately up to you.

Looking great, Wayne! I think you really have captured the "attitude" that this car could bring to the track. I admit I liked the chrome on the rims, too, but that's just my $0.02. I'll be following this build, can't wait to see the finished work. Ford blue would look pretty sweet too.

Some more small updates. The bodywork is coming along slowly as I'm trying to make sure that everything flows just right. I added a rear spoiler and blended it into the trunk lid. I also scribed and cut out the side panel to expose the chassis and where the electronics will be located.

Wayne...this is sure coming along great and I am loving the progress you are making on this one. I really like how you have cut the side panel out as well, it will be a nice added touch. Keep the pics coming.

O.K., so the bodywork is pretty much complete and all panels that needed to be cut out, including the front clip, have been done. Now it's time to start on the basic assembly and paint and get this thing completed.

That Cobra is looking wicked cool. I really like what you are doing with my favorite car of all time. It looks good sitting on that snakeskin paper . Can't wait to see it in paint.

Hmm that snakeskin paper gives me a idea with the paint scheme :D This thing is looking awesome, I love all the removable pieces. I think the black wheels will look good with the right paint, they just get lost in pictures and you do not see the detail.
