Airfix 1/16 Cobra

(1/3) > >>

Hi all i won this on ebay, its an ex MPC kit first thing the instructions are next to useless , on the first page it tells you the colours for airfix paints but there is not one point in the instructions where that colour call out is used ( as you all know I had no intention of building this as should be anyway) but if you wanted to, well, , hard cheese,
So heres the box art

I'm thinking of a fade paint job either blue to white or blue to red not decided yet.
Anyway a start on the engine, it's not a bad kit detail wise.

Either this must be huge or the Ferrari 312t must be tiny as this is 1/16 whereas the Ferrari is 1/12

Bit more done to this started adding a bit of detail to the engine (I don't know much about these engines and can't find many useful pics of throttle linkages and such)

Those air filters are just placed there.
This is the main colour I've gone for.

Hi all a bit more paint applied to this one.


Spent ages trying to get this decal to settle down, in the end I decided to remove it, and the reason it wouldn't settle down became apparent, never seen that happen before and no idea why.

I have had a few decals do that, either very old decals or they have been affected by the top coat of the paint.

Hopefully you can salvage the nose area Ken.

Those MPC kits can be nice but the instructions are basic really.
