Shelby Cobra

Recommended Posts

Here is my replica build of the very first Shelby Cobra that was ever built by Carroll Shelby. I have had the opportunity to see the real car at the Las Vegas Shelby Museum/workshop. The real car is in complete original condition even down to the torn seats, paintwork and oil leak. Apparently, as we were told, it will never be rebuilt. It even shows the paint colour prior to the now blue that it is today. On the front lower panel is a small area that is yellow.

Here are my pics.

There are a couple of pics of the real car as well.

This was my first attempt at weathered seats. The seats are the kit seats with tissue paper glued on with watered down white glue. The tissue paper was then manipulated, whilst still wet, to resemble the real seats. They were then weathered with normal modelling paint after the glue had dried.. Easy!!! If I can do it, anyone can.
