So I bought the GT500 from Hobby Lobby like many others did here (40% off coupon.) Just could not bring myself to build it box stock. Sooooo the picture search began and I settled on the Super Snake. The first order of business was to find a set of wheels.......like many here I found this to be quite difficult. I found that the R/C world had more to offer than anything so I purchased the wheels below which look pretty similar to the originals (or close enough for the lack of choices out there.) On to the hood! 12 hours later of cutting, filling, sanding, filling, sanding, priming, :blink: !!! ??!! Finally got the hood ready for paint.

 

Here's some progress shots so far....

Your workmanship is fine.

But the 1:1-I can't help but be reminded of the giant catfish seen on Discovery Channels 'River Monsters'...

Thanks Cato. :lol:  She is definitely a monster alright! The 1:1 has up to 850hp!!

Hood looks great. You could probably sell some of those.

I agree with Ray, cast that hood and make a short production run available. you might be able to recoup the cost of the kit. :)

 

those wheels look just right.

Thanks guys...your probably right about the hood but for me to do this one I had to cut, raise, and section the hood that came with the kit. Besides, I wouldn't know the first idea of how to cast it anyhow. Good idea though.

I wanted to do that to my hood before I traded the kit, but I had no idea on how to do that. The scoop is a little on the large side, but looks good nonetheless. Great job and good pick of the wheels!

Thanks, I dont blame you for getting them.....if I had a Mustang it would be the first purchase I would make.

No unfortunately I didn't do a step by step on them. I just dug in and built them. You basically have to cut apart the hood, refit it, add the sides, and then reglue it together. the scoops were just measured, cut, and glued styrene.

 

Next will be the Kenne-Bell supercharger, then the embroidered headrests will be hand painted (Cobras.) STAY TUNED!
