Kyosho Shelby Cobra 427S/C – Blue/Red Stripes

If you missed out on the earlier release of Kyosho's 1:18 Shelby Cobra 427S/C there will be a new opportunity in the near future to add one. A new series of colour combinations are in the works, the first features Blue with Red stripes. The Shelby Cobra 427S/C is manufactured in diecast metal with opening bits. Though the model isn't perfect it is a very good representation of one of the most iconic cars of all time. And no serious collector should be without one! Price point is very good too, it will set you back $135US or less. Store date late 2016, early 2017.

PS – We have three models of the new Shelby Cobra 427S/C in queue for review. Look for a full feature in the near future.

I know eh. If there's anything Kyosho is good at, it's devaluing their models.

I could also do the write-up, but shipping from Canada would kill the fun. :)

Thanks Andy, but I did some googling today to see which version I like the most (there are A LOT) and narrowed it down to this one, although it seems to be hard to find:

Build it yourself with a base model. If you take a sample I need a review first :D
