The Postperson delivered my latest acquisitions yesterday: an IMC Lola T-70 and a Tamiya "King Cobra" nee De Tomaso/Brock group 7. I now have two IMCs, one Atlas, one Tamiya , two K & Bs and two Revell slot car bods Lola T-70s all 1/24. I feel the Atlas and the K & Bs are the most accurate. The IMCs I'll super detail other than Mecoms with Ford DOHC or Chevy with sidedraft Webers. Want to do a couple with Penske "wings" the others conventional tails but brighter colors besides the blues or reds.
The "King Cobra" since it was never "Officially" a Shelby but I like the blue w/stripes and don't care for the De Tomaso red it was shown in, I will take some "Artisic License" with and mount on the excellent WIXX 1/24 Ford GT MK II diecast chassis with the beautiful 427 probably downdraft 58 mm Webers vice scratchbuilding a Lotus 30/40 "Backbone" chassis.
Been stripping the blue paint from my Revell 427 Cobra "Flip Top" and unkown (probably Lancer) Daytona Coupe. It's been three weeks stripping and I still have bleached in decals color into the inside plastic, I've sanded the insides and sprayed gray primer on the Flip Top and today will spray blue metal flake followed by silver on the Daytona Coupe. These are test shots with screw holes and splits so not Primo bodies. I have never spray painted or masked a clear plastic body, using Testors spray enamel, hope they don't "curl"!
