  1. Thank you for all the info, guys! My Fujimi kit arrived today, from Japan, and indeed it is the same as the Revell kit. I checked the sprues count by comparing my kit with pictures of the Revell kit that I found online. It is a great kit, and I can't wait to build it!! Cheers, fellas!
  2. I was recently wanting to purchase this kit, but was on the fence between the Fujimi and the Revell kit. Does any one have any experience with either kit? Cheers!!
  3. Thanks for the info, and that's a great looking 427 you've got there!
  4. Yay, I found some Goodyear white wall tires!
  5. I thought so too, but if you take a closer look at picture 7 of 12 on the Mecum link I posted, you will clearly see a single intake manifold, that appears to be a cobra hi-riser. I like the intake manifold on this kit: http://modelkitreviews.proboards.com/thread/102/24-monogram-shelby-cobra-427 As it appears to be the right height.
  6. Agreed, very nicely detailed and would work wonderfully, but again it has a dual intake. I'm satisfied with the amount of detail the Revell Parts Pak comes with, but the intake is all wrong as it's dual.
  7. I'll be one of the first ones to pick up the photo etch set if it ever comes out! Thanks for the response
  8. Fantastic! Thank you for the info. I have some Plamoz wheels for my 68' but I'll have to order another set for my Super Snake, I found a seller on Ebay that has Goodyear white wall tires that would work wonderfully, but they're asking $30 bucks! Insanity. Also emailed Keith, so hopefully I'll have an awesome set of his decals soon. As to the intake, the Monogram cobra 427 still doesn't look quite right. I may have to use the intake I have and build it up with some putty. Thanks for the replies!
  9. Hello, all. My name is Arturo, and I'm relatively new to the forum. I'm a Ford Mustang guy, and am currently building a 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500 by AMT in 1/25 scale. The progress is slow, as I want to add in as much detail as possible, and the AMT kit is mediocre at best, but I can't help but think about my next build. I'm looking to replicate this car as closely as possible, down to every last detail: https://www.mecum.com/lots/SC0513-154080/1967-shelby-gt500-super-snake/ I have an AMT 1967 Shelby GT350 that I plan to use the body and parts for this build, but I'm having trouble with two things,;the tires and the engine. Per my research, the engine is the same 427 used in the Leman's winning GT40 MK II, but Shelby modified it for this test run specifically. I've purchased the Revell parts pak 427, for the build, but that comes with a dual intake manifold, and per pictures of the actual engine, I think Shelby used a single cobra hi-riser manifold. The problem is, I can't seem to find a decent cobra hi-rise manifold. The car itself is 1 out of 1 built, and was used to showcase the promotional Goodyear Thunderbolt tires, which is my second issue. I've no idea where to find the tires used, or anything similar. I figured with all the knowledge and expertise on here, someone might be able to steer me in the right direction! Regards, Arturo
