Greetings from building trails again. This time, my choice is the Shelby GT500 "Elenanor" 1967 from the well-known movie "Gone 60 in Seconds" (2000). The body shell and the parts necessary for it are a resin product. Metal ets parts have also been added to add detail. The product is Ukrainian USCP (Ukrainian scale car production) The donor is Revelli's Shelby Mustang GT350 H. The resin parts are easy to process, but they seem to be fragile. The color is Pepper Gray from the Zero paints.

Mold marks marked in black to be sanded off and panel gaps made deeper.

The hood mounting hinges were poor and makes them metal which makes for better opening. The edges of the hood also need to be improved a bit, the gaps with the body of the car are a bit too big. (A bit hard to get a picture).

Fitting the muffler. At the ends of the exhaust, cuts had to be made on the bottom of the body at the wheel wells, and the resulting holes were filled with pieces of PLA plastic. The muffler pots fit better with the bottom, I made small bumps on them.

Time has gone on and the design of the model has also moved forward a bit. Next, the door side panels had to be replaced at the cabin, the original panels had to be removed and new panels put in their place. PLA plastic had to be used to keep the new panels in place. With the panels in place, it turned out that the seats did not fit in place. It was too narrow to fit the seats, and the solution was to make grooves on the outer ends of the new panels to get a little more space. This was helpful and the seats went into place as they should.

More carving and matching was the making of the hood attachment points, 0.9 copper tube and 0.7 pin and 1.2 mm copper sheet were used, the sides of which were twisted together for strength.

More recent pictures of the assembly and pictures of the finished model. After applying the clear coat, polishing has been done on the car body shell. The hood nose mounts work like the real thing, very small clips for that.

It's an iconic car, and the detailing is superb!

Thanks for the kind words, but I have to find a better solution for the wires of the hood clamp cables, they are too strong and should be softer.
