Carroll Shelby tribute community build.

Recommended Posts

The main reason was I bought it open box without decals ( i knew that before hand ) but got stalled on what I wanted to do as far as body livery. So I built the internals and it's sat in the box for a year until I 'got around to it'. With Revell reissuing the kit as Compuware I decided to put it to use finally. This week or so I'll probably offer up the body for trade, but it'll have no wing obviously lol

Thanks Jesse!

The decals aren't cooperating so it looks like a new paint job is coming without the stripes!

Small update, overtime this weeks zapping my mental strength. So I've been doin basics on other stuff in the evenings not wanting a mental error. As far as this one goes I got it in primer and my trim blackened at the bottom.

I am going to love this thread. Cobra's my favorite. Plus Cranky is building another ? Wonderful. I have a bunch of unbuilt Cobra's but will not have time to build for a while. I will be watching this one. Looking forward to seeing all the builds.

Hi Guys, my build will be a 1969 Shelby Mustang that I've already started. Well, just the body has been painted anyway.

I've included a picture of a previous '69 build.

Thanks for looking.

I built new Turkey Pan. The base part, I mean that the flat area is from the kit, but those "walls" are built from styrene. After little putty, it looks ready for paint. I also installed spark plug wires. Next I'm going to continue by installing headers and stuff like that.

I'm jealous of how well you plugs wires turned out. I wish mine looked that good. Keep up the good work.

That should be cool, have you decided if it'll be straight paint; or with a livery? I haven't even gone to my bench since this weekend. Works got me wore out. I think i'll try and muscle through some stuff on mine. It's NOT on the back burner though don't worry i'm in this.

I am not sure yet, I would love to do the stripes, but the only stripe decals that came with the kit are the racing ones, with big circles on them.

Edit- body primer, next up remove the mold lines, started work on the engine , and getting parts painted.

Really? Hmm that looks different than some others i've seen. I really like how that flocking sits in there. I dunno. I'll check that out though, looks killer.
