there seems to be some question as to the grill on the 68' Shelby's, some say it is body color, others say it was blacked out and still others think it was chromed. I hope the pics I post here of 1:1 cars settles any thoughts and will be helpful to those of us that have built this model.

Thanks for posting.  Body color it is for the inside area except for the black grille and chrome trim  As we know the kit part includes all these areas so paint accordingly.

I LOVE this shot!

I'm doing some final tweaks to the grille opening and this pic show some very slight changes I want to make. I've got a ton of pics as I'm building the Green Hornet, but this particular dead on shot helps things a bit.

I believe the one car you have pictured is actually "Lil Red"...............

They have it listed as the Green Hornet, but 'Lil Red came the year before, with a supercharged V8. I'm not sure of the engine size (maybe a 428), and pics are hard to get as the car was crushed after its time was done showing off to the press and automotive world.
