My tribute to one of the most beautiful brute engined sports cars of all time. The second 1/8 model to be finished by me, it's modeled after Carroll Shelby's 1965 427 S/C Cobra. The beautiful english roadster body was originally designed by John Tojeiro for AC Cars.
I'll never forget how my father took my to an oldtimer race on the Hockenheimring when I was rather young. There, I stood beside the right sidepipe of a competition Cobra when the driver cranked the beast up - Rock and Roll, big block vibes directly into my guts. In that moment I decided to own such a machine one day!
The model is a curbside version with no interior detail other than the cockpit. It's fully scratchbuilt with a handcarved body and detail parts 3D printed.
