This is the ex aurora GT40 kit. The front tire trunk dont open cuz i couldnt get the hinges to work. By far my crummiest build in a long time but still a great final edition to my shelby blue crew... The valve covers are cobra ones from a mustang, the wheel knock offs are from the amt 289 cobra, and the decals are from the amt 2005 ford gt.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Nice collection of Fords. Looks like you're having a lot of fun there. Interesting to see the last version of the Ford GT with an early iteration of the GT40.

they dont look as similar as i though they would. the mk2 looks more like the new one.

You did a great job on that old Aroura kit. They are not the easiest kits to build.

Nice Blue Ford collection.
