    How do the decals look on the Original Telle Mercedes CLK-GTR?  Are they micro cracked?

    I also ordered one from Greg after I ordered the Scale Production kit. It's a nice body for sure. I've got the body and rims painted.  I found a set of tires I bought fit the rims perfect and look better than the Scale Production tires, they are Bridgestone tires and are made by Pegasus. I will post some pictures later.  I plan on ordering at least 2 or 3 more body's from Greg!

    The paint is Tamiya Mica blue ( about 6 coats) with Tamiya clear and Tamyia fine white primer.
    The kit comes with the racing style windshield. Here is the kit i used,  http://www.ebay.com/itm/MISB-REVELL-SHELBY-COBRA-427-S-C-MODEL-KIT-85-2828-/201500921589?hash=item2eea640ef5:g:yIYAAOSwT~9WjBYz
    Thanks but the paint is far from flawless, i had a problem with the blue pulling away from the door and trunk edges when i clear coated it. I let the 6 coats dry for close to 3 weeks, best guess is i piled the first coat of clear on to thick and it reactivated the blue and it just pulled away from the edges.  The stripes are the kit decals, they went on very nice seeing how they are printed by Cartograph. They still take a good amount of Microsol and heat from the hairdryer to get them to lay down.

    Thanks guys, it was a pretty easy and fun build!

    They look amazing and are easy to put together, even the 1/43 scale ones. The one major downside to them is when you bend them to conform to the surface, the paint flakes off and leaves you with a bare metal spot.

    427 Shelby Cobra
    Just finished this build. I got 2 of these Revell kits from someone on this site. This one i wired the distributor, added an ignition coil, used a turned aluminum air cleaner, added 4 toggle switches to the dash and used a set of Eduard P/E seat belt harness. Not many problems with the build of the kit. Im happy with it.

    I have a built #98 GT40 with good tires, also have another set of tires from another #98 car unused. I even found a set of tires from one of the Fujimi GT40 kits that are slicks with raised letters on them.
