Building Monogram's Street and Revell's Racing Version of Shelby Cobra.

I built new Turkey Pan. The base part, I mean that the flat area is from the kit, but those "walls" are built from styrene. After little putty, it looks ready for paint. I also installed spark plug wires. Next I'm going to continue by installing headers and stuff like that.
Having problems with the picture uploading, so I post them when I can solve the problem...

The battery, I need for the interior is coming now and soon I can continue building the interior too. I actually have some more work done for the engine, but when I do some little "weathering" for the headers, I'll post a picture or two.

Actually, just noticed this thread tonight and went through it. Dunno how I missed it... Been REALLY busy lately in the 1:1 world.
Anyway, The street car turned out Awesome! I agree with some on here that the paint is a bit heavy on the metal flake, but I bet it looks MUCH better in person. Cameras combined with a lot of lighting definitely make stuff like that stand out a lot more.
Can't wait to see the race car finished too. Very nice attention to detail! Makes me wanna build one now! Too much on my plate at the moment, though.

The metal flake looks bit better in person, actually it's pretty good for my eye. In the sunlight it doesn't look right, though.
Needs to find some reference photos for the racing version too. My other computer broke down with all of my reference photos from every model car there. So now I need to start looking for them again. I'm going to post few pics soon of the Cobra.
