- On top of the gold Corvette, I got three other mystery cars. First we have the 300 SRT8. I was really excited for this one because it looked like a great casting and it, well...
is all plastic. Wavy, imperfection filled plastic, with awful tagged tampos. I tried to remove them with some nail polish remover, and uh...
It kinda melted the plastic a little. Gonna have to give this one a fresh coat of paint to see if I can hide some of that. As for the other two...
The Shelby and MR2. Next, the Cobra.
I love everything about this casting. This is how you do a plastic body correctly. Everything from the matte paint to the detailed headlamps and fuel filler cap to the “COBRA” script on the back is just awesome. I wish they did the 300 this way. Finally the MR2:
Originally I thought this was a hotted up version of a 2nd gen MR2 as all the artwork on the list shows all the cars kind of deformed. It’s actually a caricature of a 3rd gen. I tried to find something about it I liked, and well, I don’t. Trade/customization fodder it is then. Kinda wish I went for the Cien or Deora II instead. Ah well, lunch break tomorrow it is then.
