Hopefully the "spine" will look better when sanded down a bit and I squirt some paint on it.  I did have the same thought however.

Since cobraman is doing the vette spine I can mod my old kit (yup, I still have it) with a hatchback so I have better access to the package tray. :)

My thoughts for this kit are to build it as a race car. I have a couple of the kits and started on one of them when Lindberg introduced it. But then we moved and I've never pulled it back out.

 

- Halibrand mags to replace the wires that failed on the 1st racing Cobra.

- Hood scoop for the 4 Webers

- Side header pipes or possibly a pair out the back

- USA racing colors. White/blue Possibly like the Shelby Blue with white stripes or metallic blue with a white band across the hood. Or maybe even white with blue stripes like old family friend Briggs Cunningham's cars.

- Spoilers front and rear have been considered also. They were used on the GTOs and other GT racers of the era.

Not had a lot of time to work on this one but did manage to get some things done.
