Well, aluminum... or Zamac... whatever. Of all the 1/24 Cobras made, this FM model of the polished and clear coated 427 SC #98 is my favorite. With the black side exhausts and wheel centers, it mirrors today's styling cues. The polished metal really highlights the sinuous curves of this snake on wheels.

An excellent model. I wasn't sure I'd add a Shelby Cobra to my collection, but when I saw this model, I knew I had to have it. It is a really cool model.

Your photos are impressive. Well done. Thanks for your post.

I normally don't collect race cars but this one caught my eye when it first came out and I had to have it. As always, super pictures Rich.

@bob-jackman I hear you, Bob, but this so much more than a race car. It's an American automotive icon that transcends genre. For as extensive as your collection is, how could you not have one Cobra in it?

Rich, I called this a race car because of the roundell and number. I have lots of Cobra models in all scales in my collection and agree they are iconic.
