Time to polish the silver... [PIC]
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?
Sweet little Cobra. FM did an excellent job on this one!
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.
Nice car, I have one Cobra to round out my collection.
