This is one of my favorite cars ever since I saw at the Chicago Auto Show back in '69.

It's painted in Tamiya red with no clear coat, just polished out with The Treatment.

Very nice. This kit can be a bit tricky to build, but you made it look easy.

My older brother was friends with two brothers whose dad bought them Shelbys when they graduated from HS. ('69 & '70) For some reason, he didn't seem interested in adpoting a 3rd son...

I thought Revell did a great job on this kit, especially when compared with their blunt-nosed '69 mustang.

Nice job, Al! Which Tamiya red did you use?

This one's camping in my on-deck circle. What did you find tricky about it?

From what I can recall (I built mine over ten years ago) it mostly revolved around the tight fitment of the engine and front chassis during final assembly. I can remember that being a challenge, trying not to break stuff. The front valence panel was a bit wide, too, and could have been narrowed up some, though I didn't mod mine. Overall it was a great kit though, maybe it was just my dumb luck with the few finicky fitment issues.
