|This kit was release by Monogram back in the '90s in the Ultimate series. I believe they also did the split
window coupe Corvette. Excellently done with engine compartment and interior detail. The only thing
they left out was a way to hinge the hood. I made a bracket out of a paper clip to hold the hood in the
open position. It also came with finely done photo etched parts. I built it, along with the other Monogram
1/43 Scale Cobras, out of the box. Exterior is finished with Model Master Arctic Blue Metallic enamel.
It has not been sanded or polished.
I bought a bunch of these at a model show for $3 each back then. I should have bought more at that price
as they're bringing considerably more on ebay today. Luckily, I still have two left in sealed boxes.
