Lookin' good!

I have a question: if this is a street version, where do you attach the license plate(s)?

The. Front would be more of a challenge but I had a kit Cobra I drove for five years without a front plate and was never pulled over.  Withi this version you even have room for two suitcases and a spare tire.  There are quite a few Mark I roads cars but I thinks all the Mark II's were built for racing first.  Some of the Cobra Daytona Coupes were street legal and driven so anything is possible.

Looks absolutely fantastic... lovely work, and a great colour scheme. I gather, though there may be room for two suitcases, that whatever you put in them will be well and truly cooked before you arrive at your destination!

best,

M.

Wow, that's just flat-out gorgeous!  Would you mind listing the mfr & p/n (ex Testors #2704) for the red and charcoal paints?

Great looking "Street GT40". The paint color and finish is perfect. What color and brand is that Red ? Lots of great details thru out and I like the Gurney Bump on the Roof.

thanks to all of the nice comments you guys have posted! now regarding the brands for the paints I used, I' m sorry to tell you that they are custom made , I mean  i went to an automotive pint shop and there i just looked at some catalogs and picked a metallic red (base color) then last  February a contest was held here at my hometown  and won a prize , such one included some sort of paints all of them enamels , and one of those was a clear red one the brand is Licona Hobby Color,( I couldn't tell you if  this guy sells international)  and such is intended to create a candy  effect when applied on a metallic base color( silver,gold ,etc) and that is how I got the finished color on the Gt40, so I guess that if you guys go to your local automotive paint retailer probably you´ll get these materials easily. well I hope I was able to help with this info.
