So as a Christmas gift from my Grand parents I got the Blue Revell Shelby G.T. 350R from Revell's Street Burner series.  I'll get some pics tonight or tomorrow.

I'm sure others probably have better, but I have this link.  Good shots of the engine bay and interior.

Those are great pics, but with gas tank does it look like they just flipped it upside down so it would look like it's flat on the under side?

Being this is an "R" Shelby the batter belongs in the trunk

I didn't like how the oil pan turned out from the kit so I filled in the gaps and I'm going to paint it grey

Made some progress this weekend, this is my first airbrush job and I don't think I'll ever use spray paint again.

I filled in the open area of the gas tank with some plastic and putty and the battery I cut out from the engine bay and put it in the trunk. I took a cap from mags on the Big Deuce and put a quick fill gas cap in it.

I was wondering about that, maybe the tank from the AMT 67 Shelby will work for that.
