I have always wanted to build the Gurney Targa Florio Cobra.  I could have bought either the Model Factory Hiro (expensive) or Historic Racing Miniatures (long wait) kits but once again really wanted to use the 60's Revell slot car body.  The opportunity came up a couple of months ago when I actually won, for a change, a reasonable Revell slot car on E-bay for a FAIR  price.  Using a spare AMT 289 & Monogram 427 I set to work.  Chassis, suspension & interior is from the AMT 289 but widened & lengthened.  All the outer body bits are Monogram.  Motor is Monogram Mustang.  Dashboard, suitcase bumps and extractors are scratchbuilt, wheels I cast from my Gunze Sanyo Daytona coupe, Weber trumpesy are shoe eyelets a mate found for me

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words.

 

Bob, I used auto acrylic, just went to the local paint shop & asked for 100ml of Viking Blue.

 

Phil, hard to guess it is your favourite Cobra!!!

 

Tks
