Cobra 1950 Mercury
Posted by spencer1984 on Sunday, May 10, 2020 9:59 PM

My build of Marion Cobretti's ride from Cobra. I started with Revell's '49 Merc kit and replaced the engine, modified the stance, gave it an upgraded interior with custom belts and a '50 dashboard, and customized the body to fix the hood corners, add the scoop, and give it correct bumpers (among other chages). Paint was "Cobra Slate Grey" by ScaleFinishes. A full writeup is available here, as always any comments/criticisms are welcome!

I don't remeber much about the Stallone movie, but I certainly remember his Merc.  Great job, looks terrific.  Cheers.

Very nice build on that Merc as I too don't remember too much about the movie, however I do remember the car.
