Pretty much a straight OOB build, except for the flocking, dry transfer letters, fuel lines and park plug wires. This was a relatively quick build (for me anyway) inspired by a real one I saw at Ocean City cruise nights this past fall. I like the brown with the white. Let me know what you think!

I usually do not like brown, but that is stellar.

That is really nice Cobra, I like seeing these and I'm building one of these myself too, great inspiration here. The brown fits very well on that body, actually much better than I thought before seeing the pictures. And your paint work is always impressive, it's smooth as glass and of course shiny too. Nice details and great overall look. Fine build.
