I built this model because my neighbor had one when I was in Jr. High. His was orange and had chrome reverse wheels with chrome baby moon hubcaps. Later on he added a 69 Mustang hood scoop with with 351 callouts. It is basically a box stock build with a few minor mods. I built the streetmachine version with the two 4bbls and the chrome headers. The chassis has very roomy rear wheel wells so i opted to clearance them wee bit more for wider rubber. I widened the stock GT rims by adding chrome rings. The decal set is from Keith Marks and includes the rear tail panel grid, the hood scoop air inlet and all the Cobra callouts. The BMF on the front edge of the hood and the trunk lid was quite challenging as I had to cut them freehand. The side marker lights are Ultra-fine Sharpie on BMF. The whole body has been sealed with Future floor wax.
This model was built mostly box stock. The color is a really pretty Jade Metallic green from Testors long ago. The wheels are Minilites as used on vintage Trans Am racers. The side stripes are silver water slides from Keith Marks. This model spent a couple of years in pieces after our cat knocked it off of a high shelf. Fortunately nothing was lost because I keep everything in a zip-lock baggie. And for your really attentive people, yes I know the spoiler is on backwards. I did that on purpose because I think the "right" way just looks wrong.
