Two more updates for my 4-wide Ford AC Cobra 427: SNOT Stripes and a new rear end.
When I first saw these SNOT stripes on Starscream Soundwave’s 4-wide Viper I knew I had to make some of these for my Cobra, too. The original design of the stripes on a 4-wide is most probably from J K’s Zonda and there are some cool instructions made by Loek Marcus how to attach them to a 4-wide. But I had no idea how to put them into my Cobra without messing up the design.
One day I took my notebook on a larger train tour and had a few hours to work on this problem with LDD. I finally found a way to attach the stripes in the front without changing the overall look of the car. And then I had the idea to use slider plates to create an air scoop on top the hood including the stripes.
Update December 9, 2013:
With the new 1x2x2/3 “half bow” parts I had some ideas for new shapes on the Shelby Cobra:
Smooth lines on the hood. The thin black stripe had to go in this version, but the SNOT air scoop is still there.
The new rear end:
The tail lights are “borrowed” from Karsten’s VW Bus.
