I'd really like to do the Heller Bentley Blower, but it looks like a lot of work (as does the Fujimi '73 Porsche Carrera RS), and I want to ensure I finish something for the GB... So I'm going to start off with something a little easier. If that goes well, then I'll see about jumping into the Bentley.

I assume a Shelby Cobra 427 ranks as a supercar?

I've got the Monogram kit sitting here, so I'll be jumping into it unless I'm told the Cobra isn't super enough.

Yea even if some of the European Subarus and EVOs will lap better times than Ferrari's or lamborghinis they're still not supercars. I would put them more in the tuner car category.

Maybe have a GB of that in a year or so? Don't get much traffic on these auto GBs.

OK. Cleared my two previous builds off, a 1/144 Albatross HU-16E and a 1/48 F-16D. Ready to start this.

My intention is to build a model of a specific car, serial number DB4/106/L, a 1958 Aston Martin DB4 Series I Saloon shown at the 1959 New York Motor Show. According to the Bonhams auction page, the most recent sale price for the fully restored vehicle was €293,500.

My father owned this car from the early 1970's until the mid-late 1980's. I might have some pictures of the vehicle, but I need to look through my father's photos.

Here's the starting point


The kit's apparently from 1991. Gotta love those red, black, and chrome parts.
