Sometimes out in the waste, its not about armor or the biggest guns, it's speed. When you need to go from point A to point B the fastest way possible(and look cool while doing it!) The Striking Cobra is made just for you. With a supercharged engine, extended custom hand forged exhaust and a dilithium fueled boost reactor, it will get you where you need to go and in a hurry! ideal for smuggling,bootlegging,racing and grocery getting! get one today!


This is a 1/24 kitbash model Shelby Cobra that i made from a much older and broken model [link] Painted with "Model Masters" enamels, weathered with art acrylics and pastels.
i have been battling cold for the last few days and while not uber detailed, this was a good way to pass the time while i wait for other projects to arrive and rest up. anyways this will be my last 1/24 car for awhile. they are very fun and great practice for upcoming stuff but its back to 1/35 for me. expect lots of zombies next week.

Copywriting is a big part of advertising.

Even if a picture speaks a thousand words english is less than 10% of language.

Excellent ! Maybe the 'scratches' are a bit too large ... (just a personnal opinion, don't feel offended)

Soooo this would or could be a good Zombie fighting escape car or an unseen part of the Mad Max world then? This would fit supremely well in either situation I'm thinking. This is some well done fun, if hard to see this done to the sweet, powerful lines of the Cobra. :D

yea haven't quite figure out a good back story, this was kinda being used as color practice. was thinking about doing a tank in the same scheme.

it was almost hard for me to bring myself to beat up the cobra. Shelby cobra's are probably one of my all time fav cars and the original model was one of the very few cars that i made that came out ok. but it had been broke and repaired soo many times and had been siting in a box for at least a year so....
