Essex Wire Cobra Finished

If I were to do it again, I would cut the orange stripes off and paint the black on.   The decal split in the back on the truck, and I couldn't get it to line up straight.  Overall, though, I like the way it looks.

Great paint work and very believable detailing on the engine and chassis.

Very nice!  I built one of these a number of years ago.  Yours turned out better than mine.

Anytime there are panel lines I cut the decal at the break.   It is easier to work in smaller sections and to line up.

Oh man! That’s beautiful. I need to do some older road race stuff. Good inspiration!

Nice looking Cobra. It's hard to go wrong with a Cobra in my opinion, especially in a racing style.

I ordered the wheels and tires from Historic Racing Miniatures.
