Nichimoto 1/16 Shelby GT500 Cobra kit

May 5, 2024 · in Automotive · · 4 · 127

Hello to all. Wonderful site here.
I recently picked up a Nichimoto Co. Shelby Cobra kit minus the instruction sheet. Can anyone help me find a copy (or provide me with a PDF scan)? I've searched on-line but because the company is no longer is in business I'm not having any luck finding a copy.
Thanks in advance.
Dennis C.

  1. Welcome aboard, Dennis!
    Finding those instructions at the net seems difficult. If nothing else comes out, maybe a solution would be to check sites where copies of this kit are for sale, contact the seller and ask for a copy of the instructions?

  2. Hi Dennis, welcome to iModeler. If you look at and search for 1/16 Shelby GT500 you’ll find that the Nichimo kit has been released by other companies, such as Entex 6106, AMT 4804, Matchbox/AMT PK-7508 and AMT 872, you should be able to download the instructions from there. Hope this helps, happy modelling.

  3. Welcome to this amazing site, Dennis @dvcruz
    Scalemates, as mentioned by George @chinesegeorge, is definitely the site to look for missing information.
    We are looking forward to seeing that Shelby taking shape.

  4. Thank you everyone for the quick response and helpful suggestions. This isn't the first time I've had this issue so I know that it will probably take a while to find what I need. However, I've located missing instructions or plans in the past and I know that it will probably take a while.
    In the meantime, I'm going to sit back and enjoy this wonderful site. There are some terrific articles and pictures here.
    Great work everyone.
