Pikes Peak Cobra "The Bullet "

Recommended Posts

Finished the build a little bit ago. Tried to make it similar to a Cobra I found a photo of a Pikes Peak Cobra. I think I pulled it off. Not perfect but I am pretty happy with it. The driver "Carl" named it "The Bullet ". This is the Monogram kit. I used parts box wheels and tires, decals. Got the driver from ebay as well as the distributor. I made the front spoiler, the rear wing and the roll cage was modified from some roll bar pieces. For Harry I added a alternator bracket. : ) The car was painted with Duplicolor yellow and then some blue stripes were painted on . It was cleared with Testors high gloss enamel. All comments pro or con are welcome. Thanks for looking !
