    427 Cobra Club/Road Racer
    I don't know about you guys but I have only ever posted new builds up here and that leaves an awful lot of built models that I have not, and probably won't, post.  The main reason is I am building somewhat better than 30+ years ago and would rather keep some of my failures to myself!!!  While having a break from building I decided to restore one of my favourite Cobra's (and I have a lot!!).
    This 1/16 MPC Cobra was built around 40 years ago and was languishing in the back cupboard with a broken bonnet.  As I could not match the blue I decided to paint the bonnet anti glare black.  When originally built I did a number of changes from standard:
    front & rear wheels are original Halibrand centres with rims and slick from 1/12 Tamiya F1 cars;
    additional reversed scoops in the bonnet (1/25 AMT Cobra scoops);
    vents in the rear guards;
    scratchbuilt quick fill fuel cap;
    header tank in right guard with access through cap in guard;
    sports windscreen;
    right hand drive conversion and associated leather covered seats, as you did back then!!, seat belts, etc.
    After a gently cut & polish I finally decided to post one of my old hackers.

    Elfin 400 Repco (Aussie 60's Big Banger Sports Car)
    Have just finished my Bob Jane Elfin.  I cast this from an old slot car mould and made up the unique wheels to go with it.  Nothing fancy here, the complete model comprises either aluminium, plastruct or cast resin pieces.  It's only taken me around 10 years to complete, kept loosing enthusiasm!!  It now completes my Aussie sports cars which comprise the Matich SR3, Elfin Traco Olds and Ferrari 350.

    Chaparral 2H
    Have just finished my resin slush mould of Mini Exotics 2H.  A mate managed to pic up a unbuilt version and offered it to me so, being lazy, I took a quick silicon of the body and a one piece mould of a front and rear wheel/tyre assembly and a resin of the windscreen.  I've never tried a 2 piece mould, maybe I should one day!!  Anyway, after scratch building the rear wing and supports, front spoilers, interior, body deflectors and deepening the side NASA vents I have finally finished it.  I used MCG Dzus fasteners and luckily had a set of Fred Cady Chaparral decals  spare in the decal box. It's not perfect and doesn't reflect any particular event however it's nice to complete my Chappie collection.

    Excellent build Larry.  Inside the exhausts could be a matt dark grey perhaps?

    Just a few pics of my latest Chaparral build.  This brings it too a total of 5 Chappy's with 1 more to go, excluding my slot car versions.  Not bad for a Ford guy!!
