The 914 will be a reissue of the Revell kit. However it is supposed to include the racing windscreen from the Richie Ginther version along with all the street car parts. Originally the race car version and the street car version were separate kits.
Less we forget what hairy chested beast these cars were. Here is Bob Bondurant firing up CSX2345, which is completely original and unrestored. It is exactly how it appeared in it's final event, a hill climb. CSX2345 was original painted Princess (Viking) blue but was re-sprayed Guardsman Blue (Shelby' team color) for the '65 season. You will notice they didn't bother to mask off the jacking points just sprayed over them
Thanks Brian. Because of the body mods I used Dupli-Color High Build primer applied straight from the can. I apply a coat then sand it back around any seams to flatten everything. Once I am happy everything is even I apply another coat. I really like Dupli-Color primer especially the spray pattern of the nozzle - good stuff. Tamiya's primer is also excellent.
I also like their standard primer. But beware the color is quite a bit darker.
Thanks Maxx. If I settle on a Daytona or Sebring car I don't need to create the suitcase bumps. They weren't added until the cars went to Europe. In addition my research indicates CSX2301 never received the suitcase bumps.
Thanks Tommy. The tires are just as nice as the wheels. Yes they are knock only. Not sure why my Fotki account has started reducing the photo size but if you click on the picture you can see the image full size.
