And finally a couple shot with a different lens that should be a better approximation of what a human eye sees looking at one of these:

A really nice base kit, much enhanced by the Fine Molds white metal parts (plus you end up with a spare 427 engine!)

bestest,

Outstanding!  With the right backround it would be hard to distinguish from a 1:1.  Well done.

Thanks, guys. And yes, grrrr... I have missed the front indicators. Fortunately, I have now located them on an offcut end of formerly chrome sprue that has been stripped, and repainted them chrome silver. Tomorrow I'll do the orange and then I can add them and this thing will REALLY be finished!

bestest,

Thank you very much, gentlemen!

As for Betty-Lou, she's putty in my hands... When we first met, she was in pieces, and it was only thanks to my help she pulled herself together. She's been at my beck and call ever since.

;-P

bestest,

Very nice. Just picked up the Monagram kit yesterday, can only hope it turns out half as nice as yours.

Very nicely done. Always love to see a well built Cobra model.

AGREED!!  Q:what color are the wheels?, and how did you do the weather stripping around the engine bay?

Thanks very much, guys...

@Dann Tier the wheels are the white metal parts as cast, with a light overspray of Tamiya Smoke to pop the detail and stop them oxidising to white. The "weather strip" is just a pointed black marker pen run around the angle of the flange...

Betty-Lou's sister Samantha has apparently just boarded her plane for a visit...

;-P

bestest,

M.
