    That could work, just have to try it and see what it looks like. Then there's always water based artists acrylic, for easy clean up if you don't like it. 
    Paint is looking good. I have yet to venture into the realm of pre-foiling script, I think I need to practice that first.

    Ya, that's one beautiful Cobra for sure. I'll take the fiberglass version, lol.

    JC, I just looked up Viking blue, and they show several Cobra's in that color, very cool.
    I also found this link about the 50TH ANNIVERSARY FIA 289 SHELBY COBRA, from Shelby American I thought you might like to see if you already haven't. The car is in Viking Blue, wow:

    looks nice kevin, good job on the turn signal lense, that looks like real plastic! I wonder if putting a 'really thin' black wash on those head lights wouldn't help them look more real? Maybe someone has some other idea that would be simple to apply.

    get a zip seal plastic sandwich bag and label one for each engines parts. I use them for all kinds of stuff.

    Looking good Richard, the glass is going to look great! I'd go with the deep green metallic! The reason(s) are; I've been wanting to paint a car that color myself, and , I think it would look cool on this car as well.

    Looks nice JC, so does the mockup. What's the body color on this? Blue with white stripes?

    Yes it did Kevin, but, I bought an aftermarket chute that you construct yourself from (I looked it up) Pro-Tech, they're more realistic than the one the kits come with and cost only $4. I've got it painted Tan 'cause I was gonna use it on another car and didn't, so , I'm gonna paint it black and use it on the Mustang, that's the plan anyway.

     I don't have this kit but find it very intriguing. Interested in what you do with this Bill.

    Jeff, that is an incredibly nice thing to say, thank you, and , you're welcome. My cat is smiling.
    Thanks Carl, yer the best man! I'm gonna try and put a 'chute' on the back, I have one from (?) can't remember at the moment, lol, but , it will be black, (if I can get it on there).  
    Thanks for all the responces I've gotten on this build, it's been a challenge, I appreiciate them.

    Hello everyone! I did a little detail on the wheels, and , took a picture of the engine bay. Also took some comparison photos of the sides, one shows the car with livery, and , one without.  Cheers!

    Thanks Kevin, glad you're following this. I'm doing my best to bring this thing to life. I did a little detaling on the wheels last night, I'll post a pick later, thanks!
