A Tale of Two Shelbys
Posted by mrmike on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 4:38 PM

Like a lot of my completed models, 98% of them sit on open shelves.  I have been staring at my Shelbys sitting on the shelf, covered with dirt and dust and screaming for a cleaning.  Two weeks ago, I pulled the '65 Shelby GT350 off the shelf for a quick examination and concluded that it needed a good cleaning and polishing.  As much as I would like to repaint and repair this model, I don't have any extra stripes for this car.

The other Shelby I pulled from the shelf is a '66 Shelby GT350 that is in need of a serious rebuild and it is current completely disassembled.  It didn't take much to disassemble this model, so rebuilding it shouldn't be that difficult.  And, I don't have any extra stripes for this car, either.

I don't remember when I built them, but it has been quite a while.  While I look through all my decals, I may have to email Keith Marks for some if he has any.  Or, I may have to paint a set on by hand.

More to come...

DUST.  The bane of every model ever built.
