1976 #3 Cobe Tire Eagle Bobby Unser Finished 5/6/17

I like Bobby Unser always have and this is one cool looking car 

This is the kit it's from BlueLine (ME!!!) and it needs a AMT Eagle for the rest of the parts 

The decals are included in the transkit 

 

 

I started by filling any air bubble and priming the body then I started to drill and fit the wings and front suspension 

Next I will sand the body and put on the final white primer coat and get ready for the base color 

Thanks for looking more to come soon

I'm a Bobby Unser fan as well. Cool project. I'll be watching this build.

I can see why you like that car. Its very sharp looking with that color and those graphics. I am going to have to research that engine
