I decided to build this kit because I've always I've always liked Cobras. Since I can't afford a real Cobra, or for that matter even a replica, I settled for the Revell kit.
On opening the box and checking out the parts against the assembly instructions I noticed there were several parts that were not mentioned. Apparently these are for customizing the model. The suspension and engine appear to have nice detail too.
The Cobra kit went together very easily. The only problem I had was fitting the body over the radiator assembly. I chose to replace the side pipes with the optional chrome side pipes. I also liked the chrome roll bar option better than the black roll bar.
The tonneau cover needed to be modified slightly to fit properly over the interior. Originally it wouldn't fit over the roll bar. Everything else went together very well.
The body was painted with five coats of Testors gloss black paint from a spray can. I finished it off with one coat of clear gloss also from a spray can. (This finish really shows off the dust!) I chose not to use the decals since, strictly speaking, I didn't build the actual Baldwin-Motion Drag Cobra. Instead I built the Cobra that I would have in my garage.
I was pleased with this kit. There were no unexpected challenges, it was easy to build and the detail is nice. It builds up into a very convincing model that really catches the look of the Cobra. I would definitely recommend this model to anyone with a little modeling experience.
