OK guys, since considerable interest was shown in the FOX CBP/open ended thread for inclusion of the FOX4 cars/SN95 platform, I have decided to open a second thread for these cars. All SN95s are welcome here; 1994-2004 Mustangs and their derivatives (Cobras, Cobra-Rs, Bullitts, Mach 1s, GTSs, Saleens, Roushes). Go for it guys, make this your new SN95 home!

Well, I don't have one that I'm currently working on, but if I decide to start one, I have plenty of these things to choose from. They somehow multiplied.

Mike, if you wanna get rid of one of those Tamiya Cobra R's, let me know....

I have a few SN95s- a Monogram 94 Indy Pace Car, AMT 95 Cobra, Revell 99 Cobra, and one of the Saleen Speedsters that hasn't had any parts stolen yet. If this is an open-ended deal, I'll post progress of any of those here. I'd say they're all back burner projects, but that would be a lie since they're not even on the stove at this point. I plan on doing the 99 as a replica of a friend's black stock 99 Cobra, and the Indy Pace Car will be exactly that, to go along with the 79 I plan on doing eventually.

Sure bums me out that only one New Edge car was done. We need a Bullitt, Mach I, Terminator, Cobra R, and GT to go along with that lonely 99 Cobra.

Yeah,this should be an open ended cbp,just like the Fox Chassis sister thread :D

Maindrain Pace-Nice collection,my friend! I don't have that many of em,but I'm getting there,LOL! I need to find another '99 Cobra or 3,when the old house burned back in June,the 2 I had were kinda melted,LOL! I got's time though,they're not too hard to find (just have to find one when the wife isn't with me to say :What!? ANOTHER kit???" :P:rolleyes: )

Good to see this start to get some traffic! I fully intend this to remain open-ended, just like the FOX thread.

Mike, your SN collection looks like my FOX collection! I have about 2/3rds of your SNs in my stash, but will admit to using them to update/detail my FOXes.

Stephen, got two words of advice for future use of those wheels..............resin copies! That way, you don't have to worry about finding another die-cast! Good score by the way.

OK Rick, idea time here. Since those wheels do have center caps covering the lug area, have you looked at modifying a set of the 1979-mid84 TRX wheels? The TRX had similar spoke pattern, only were convex versus concave. Some work with a hobby knife and a motor tool could get you close enough to a working prototype and subsequent resin copies.

I just noticed those Shelby style "side scoops". Where did you find them? I could use a set on my '99.

I may get in on this one after I finish my Glue Bomb Invitational build. I have a '99 Cobra that I want to convert into a GT convertible to match my real car and I have a '98 Cobra (crappy Boyd's issue) that I want to build as a stripped out drag car. Plus, it's been a while since I've built a Mustang of any kind. It's definitely time to do one!

Nope, those are the '94-'95 17" tri-bars. They might be a good one to convert to the 15" 6cyl wheels, as they look more like a 16" wheel in scale.

Cool CPB!

I just got back to Japan from my forced summer 4 month summer "vacation" in Alaska :angry: If you don't mind, I'd like to join in. It'll give me an excuse to build my Tamiya Mustang that I've had sitting on my shelf for the last 15 years :D
