You can't see it in the pic but the word COBRA is engraved on the valve cover.

All in all it looks like it will be a good subject for a street rod or drag racer and with the 2 things I pointed out that I did'nt care for I'll give it a 9 out of 10 points.

Whoops - I should have checked the price first. That kit costs around $50.00. I never spent that much on a model.

I just don't get the way Trumpeter breaks down parts... are those injectors molded in halves?
Yes they are,I don't plan on using them but I imagine they would'nt look to good with seam lines showing.I was thinking on using cut down velocity stacks.

Trumpeter needs to either get serious or get out when it comes to car kits. I bought one of the Falcons (the first version of the hardtop) and both versions of the Pontiacs and Novas. The Falcon's underbody is all wrong: inner rear wheel tubs are way too big, transmission tunnel is way too big, stock single exhaust runs down the wrong side, and the steering linkage looks like the linkage on one of those pull-down attic staircases. The engine looks like a Picasso sculpture of an engine. The body is passable but nowhere near perfect. At $50 retail they need to get better or concentrate on the military subject matter, where they seem to have a footing.
I can see who won't be buying one in the near future.I'm not a rivet counter,nor do I enter contests,nor do I build to please other people. This kit will look good on the shelf and that's all that matters to me. I did'nt pay nowhere near 50 bucks for the kit either.I do draw the line somewhere when it comes to price.
