Hey! I've been wanting to build a Shelby for sometime now and I thought that it would be a good time to start building on after I post the '86. It's been a difficult few weeks, this Shelby was no easy task. I chose to build the '66 G.T. 350 because its my favourite out of the Shelby Mustang's. Insperation for this build came from quite a few builders, but mostly Rolands Kirpis (Rolic on Flickr) and his amazing '65 G.T. 350. Other builders include TheLEGOnoitall and his stunning '66 G.T. 350 and from all those guys that do the 'fully studded' cars, such as Nick Barrett, Mortalswordsman, DeTomaso Pantera and more. There builds inspired to do some SNOT techniques on this build. The Shelby is red with white racing stripes, 15 studs wide, black interior, opening hood, doors and boot, 289ci engine with Paxton Supercharger, fatter rear tyres and as much detail as I could put on the outside, interior and engine. This is possibly my favourite I've built so far. Thanks to everyone I mentioned above and also to Starscream Soundwave and Loek for convincing me to continue with this build. I hope you all like it! PLEASE READ! I'll be going away from the end of August till the end of November, so I'll not be able to post/build anything or rate/comment/favourite anyone's builds. I'll be back posting again in mid to late December 2013 or January 2014. Thanks for all of your support and happy building!
Fantastic build aaden! All around perfect! Everything is perfect haha :) also, I live the stripes! Me and Alex B are having a moc off, and we were wondering if you would be able to judge alongside (hopefully) Ryan link and darnell t? If you could get back to me or Alex as soon as possible, that would be great :)
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments, I'm really happy that you all like it! Although I agree with you about the roofline, I too think that the slope of it is wrong. Thanks again everyone! :)
This lovely! As mentioned below, I agree the roof's a little 'off' (only a little) but the rest is so good you still get the full 5. I'd love to have this on my desk! Great colour choice too. 5 stars : )
I like it

One of the all-time great American sports cars, and this is an excellent model of it. Great job!
That's no Mustang - that's a Musthave! really, i think that's the most beautiful shelby Mustang out of Lego i've seen! so accurate, the love to details... normaly i won't ask, but do you have any kind of instructions for that beauty ? I would love to see such a beauty on my desk, but for cars i'm a little bit stupid... i would also pay for it! if you would contact me i would be happy ;-) *firstname.lastname@example.org*
Wow Aaden this is brilliant. Some really cool snot on the sides and you even managed to make it an odd number of studs wide to include the one stud gap inbetween the stripes. Great work all around. Thanks for the mention Mate :D
That's no Mustang - that's a Musthave! beautiful done in every single way... the best i've seen! normaly i wouldn't ask - but do you have any kind of instructions ? i would love to see that beauty on my desk, but i'm not good at building cars... i even would pay for it - i would be happy if you would contact me at *email@example.com*
