URL%5DHi all,,got this at  a recent DAMM swap meet show,,10$--  1/2 started glue blob.  I ez-offed every thing,,and went for this burnt orange/root beer color  ,,testors  quik dry spray,,,and decided to change the intake of the big 427.  as  well.   Hardware store nylon  step washers/spacers  {8 cents a piece} for the injector tips,,scratch built injector tubes,,gonna do a few other "non-normal" things to this one. Well see what happens,,keep up the great woks!     S002_zps12f6u4a7.jpg001_zpslqhbj27f.jpg

Thanks  Beluga,,yea,,they maybe a bit large,,but they look  ok actually in person,,the pics are " squeezed"  a bit .  I thought about just doing  "straight tubes"   w/no    flares at top,,but the step spacer things from the hardware store  work ok.  When its done,,the black injector tips will make sense  w/the paint layout+ highlights.    Tan  2  tone  interior,,and  3 different paint highlights on rims.  Right now  Im scratch building the injector linkages+  feul feed lines,,,that will be interesting,,lol.  Thanks for looking,,and keep up the great work you all do!!

I will make this a quick comment.

I saw Phil Spector get out of one of these one time.

Pretty much everybody in visual range stopped and looked.

Very impressive.

The velocity stacks make it look like it is set up for the drags.

Guys would do nothing to these cars.

Just drive 'em to the dragstrip and down the track they went.

Keep up the good work.

Good job!

I think there is a large scale Corvette too.

If you want to build more large scale.

Finished kit looks great!

I like the use of different colors on the suspension and drivetrain.  It makes them stand out.  I like the color but black is my favorite.

Well done ! Good looking model. I think the Cobra looks best in bright colors but that's just me. Truthfully, any color looks good on a Cobra to me ! : )
