Shelby Cobra 427 (4-wide), V2.1
Another update for my 4-wide Ford AC Cobra 427, with SNOT stripes and air scoop
About this creation
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.

This is the result:
Yes, I really ...

... love ...

... these stripes :-))

And this is how they are done.

The rest of the design didn't change.

So this is V2.1 of my 4-wide LEGO Shelby Ford AC Cobra 427, now with SNOT stripes and air scoop. I hope you like it as much as I do :-))

Holy smoke! This is fantastic! I don't know how I missed it earlier. What an amazingly good representation of the 427 Cobra (my favorite sports car of all time). I have to agree with TheLegoNoitAll -- the hood scoop is incredibly ingenious and is probably the best feature of the MOC.
