CSX3015 Cobra

18 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I have admired the work many of you share. Mostly an aircraft modeler I stray into automative when a subject bites. Watching the Barrett Jackson auction when Carrol Shelby's Super Snake sold made me want to build another Cobra. Ahhh, enter E-Bay and the search for a 1/16th Cobra that I had built years age for my brother. Found one in March and the referance search was on.

Here is where I stand as of now,

Appreciate your feedback and comments. Especially the photography. Having a tough time taking the close-ups.

You, sir, are responsible for my beginning to search for one of these kits and will be hearing from my wife upon my success ;) ! I built one of these when it was a new release. Very nice job you are doing here, keep us posted. J.B.

Great looking start. I'm a huge cobra fan. One thing you might change is CSX3015 had an automatic transmission...

Appreciate all the kind words.

Len, I'll build another one and take a few photos on how I did it. Be about a week though.

John, I used the MPC kit as abase for mine. Arrived missing a few parts though. Have the wife call and I'll hand the phone to my wife. They can compare notes.

Darin, you and I have been visiting the same web sites. I had all those shots of 3015 as you have. I have already made the automatic shifter. Just need to make the shift selector box and the interior will be done. Darin the Cobra story site has removed many of the photos he had up a couple of months ago. I used many of those pics when I did the manifold carving in wax.

I thought the seats were a little funky without any back. I built them up with Milliputt contouring to shape.

Then the Milliput added and primed. Still have some work to do smoothing edges and contours. Pretty happy with it though.

Its a very nice start.  Looks like the builder has never been back to the forum since the original posts.

I have a Supersnake 1/18 diecast and a 1/24 FM diecast although I'm not sure how accurate they are but they both have the twin turbos.
