SVT Cobra

Finding this 1/24 scale Maisto on a closeout shelf at a very, very, absurd price, I didn't think it had much going for it except for the $1.74, NOT $10.74, paid for it! I liked the fact that the model was a 1999 SVT Cobra Mustang, but the non-descript, solid black interior and "tray" engine compartment didn't seem to offer much in the way of special detailing work that could be done to bring out some "character" to the model. What was required for this "characterization process" was to blacken the side window trim, detail the side scoops, and silver the exhaust pipe tips. In addition, black ink was rubbed on the centers of the wheels to add some depth. I attempted to lower the front end some, too. Photgraphically speaking, Maisto seems to have done a repectable job with this budget model. Just wish they would have included some actual taillight lenses instead of merely painting them on. Overall though, quite a good-looking model and a super-major steal for the price. Thanks for looking.... 405385270.jpg405385268.jpg405385221.jpg405385269.jpg405385220.jpg405385217.jpg405385218.jpg405385267.jpg405385219.jpg

Cool! Bburango makes some decent 1/24s, easy to build your own way. In fact, I've got one or two I'd let go of, if you're into it.

I wonder why they put GT wheels on it?
