2010 Shelby Cobra GT500

Recommended Posts

Just started on this shelby over a week ago. (Testors) Bright gloss blue with 5x coats of testors clear. I had built about 10 kits ever in my life that were 90% percent complete . Before this shelby I use to paint my kits straight out the box , I started watching a lot of YouTube vids and learning as I watch. I really want to built this kit right, tips I can use.. I still haven't decided if I should go box stock or fully roll cage with twin turbo kit on slicks and a drag chute?

My next project after this shelby is a 87 Buick Gnx fast & furious clone. post-13235-0-35039500-1391059744_thumb.j

Looking good! If you build it stock, watch the ride height. If you don't lower it some it will look like an off-roader.
