Very nice work, Pat. That is one very mean looking machine, and looks awesome in race trim. I have wondered how these Fujimi Cobras compare to the Monogram kit. Seems like it builds up well. Nicely done!

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Thanks Trevor, yes they build very well indeed. All parts fit together, no flash to clean up. One disappointment was that I hoped that the rear arches on the box were that wide and they aren't! But super kit, no painting as body is already polished and the decals are scary thin!

There are hinges for both the bonnet and bootlid but they don't work as hinges only stick to the body, so if used, both are propped open permanently

Loving this one PW !!  Those Kelsey Hays wheels look identical to the GT40 ones I have in my parts box (....Sad Another one my Ex ruined ! ) Just needs a lap belt or two for finishing I think .

I have the Monogram version of this kit in my stash.  If my memory serves me correct, I built the street version of the Fujimi kit back in the mid-'80s and the remains of it are hidden away somewhere...
