Topics I've Started

Late model Cobra Jet 2008-2010 blending

28 March 2015 - 03:47 AM

I wish there as just a kit available to build this car but there isn't.

Fortunately there are plenty of aftermarket parts to buy in order to build one.

I have a 2008 GT500 in my stash and while the front end is wrong for a 2008 Cobra Jet, it's the kit I have and I am going to use it.

 

First thing is to change up the front to look less like a GT500 and more like the 2010 Cobra Jet front.

I bought a resin hood from eBay

I got the new decals from Slixx

I have home casted some resin Weld Star wheels

I am going to use the quarter window louvers from a 65 fast back kit

I am going to use some headers from the part box

I am using parts box tires and tachometer

I will scratch build the roll bar and seat belts

I will need to redo the air intake and scratch a open air filter

I will need to leave out the back seat and take the radio out of the dash

The rest will pretty much be out of the box

2008 GT 500 kit mostly out of the box. Mods to the lower front bumper cover to look less like a GT500 and more like a 2010 Cobra Jet. Resin hood, home cast resin wheels, scratch air intake, roll cage and seat belts. Slixx decals


RestoMod 65 Mustang Fastback Cobra

This is a car I wish I had in real life. A 65 Mustang fastback with the underpinnings of a 99 Mustang Cobra. IRS, Modular V8, 4 wheel discs with ABS, A/C and great sound system.

 

I used a Monogram/Revell 65 Mustang kit and raised the wheel arches about an 1/8 of an inch to give it a channeled look. I used the front of the Revell 99 Mustang Cobra chassis to get the newer suspension and grafted the Cobra IRS to the 65 rear portion of the chassis. The interior is the 65 tub with the 99 door panels, dash and seats. The hood has the scoop from the AMT 427 66 Fairlane only turned around like a cowl scoop. The grill is PE. The wheels and tires are from the Revell Cobra Series II (the OldsmoCobra) kit. The engine and transmission are from the 99 Mustang kit. The color is Model Masters Hemi Orange with Wet Look Clear. I started this project in 09 and just now got it finished tonight.

This was fun kit. For its age and that it's an AMT kit it really is a great kit. It's not Tamiya but has a ton of parts and lots of detail. If you can pick one up I recommend the kit.

 

The wheels are from the Revell 99 Mustang Cobra kit. The tires are from a Tamiya 88 911 Turbo kit. The engine is from a Tamiya BMW 635i. Paint is Duplicolor. Decals are parts box. Scratch made roll bar coated with AlClad II Chrome. PE seat belts and brake rotors. BMF window trim with shaky hand painted rubber gaskets.

Fun AMT kit that has been recently re-released and a Revell 70 Mustang with a duel quad 427 from a Thunderbolt kit and some after market decals

 

It's been a couple of years since I have worked on anything, this was fun.
