Model -- the wire wheels are very impressive, but they don't look like quite right compared to real Cobra wired rims...

It's interesting to see the thought processes of the more experienced builders.

I found this web site earlier and all I can say is WOW!  This is one crazy model.  The guy has a real way with Healey's.  If you had show a photo of the engine bay, I wonder how many would have chosen "real".

very cleverly done-but its a model-the wheels and headlites give it away-and the 1/1 size tire print in the dirt--nice model though-is it 1/8? or possibly bigger-  and could it be a 3D printed job?-- thats what it looks like to me

 

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the huge tire tracks!

I had already seen this incredible scale build so not really a guess for me.  :)
