I love the pad-printed blue line Good Year slicks and the restored vintage drag parts. And the custom "lucite" steering wheel! Should be a fun build.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing pics of those parts if you're willing, Matthew.

Grabbed this kit the other day at Hobbytown, and I'm glad I did!  Another great updated/improved reissue from Round2. I love the pad-printed blue line Good Year slicks and the restored vintage drag parts. And the custom "lucite" steering wheel! Should be a fun build.

D'oh!  I picked up the most recent release before this current kit at a show last month; it had none of those parts and NO decals...bummer.  I'll still build it up into a nice shelf model that will take me back to being 10 years old again... :)

I'll see what I can do.  In the meantime, the slicks have a nice, thin blue line around the perimeter and small white "Good Year" markings. The "Lucite" steering wheel rim is on the clear parts sprue, and that mounts to a chromed 2-spoke hub.

Here's a picture of the new slicks. They're really nice.

I just picked up the new kit at the hobby shop.  The body has been fixed at the front fenders and the new slicks are great.  Mine came with the same Halibrand mags, that are in the new Avante reissue, not the kidney bean mags from the original release Cobra.

I was hoping for the original type wheels.  The rest of the kit is nuce.   Steve Prideaux

I just got this kit to add to my Cobra collection. As this is a re-issue I thought some of you may like to see the older releases. I think I have them all but if I am missing any I would like to know.

The Reggie Jackson issue was definitely molded in green. :blink: :

Historic Racing Miniatures also makes Halibrand Kidney Beans....a couple of versions, not sure of the differences though.

Kit's probably still worth picking up IMO, for the tires and velocity stacks. Disappointing about the wheels though.

 

 

Here is what HRM's KidneyBean Halibrand look like.
