HELP - what is this?

02 January 2015 - 02:59 PM

I picked this up from a vendor at a show for a few bucks - a glue bomb.  I striped it , and, even worse, I started modifying it without taking any photos.  I thought it would be easy to identify a plastic Ferrari.  That's what the engine looked like, but now I suspect it didn't come with the kit.  The body and chassis detail are good.  I've added to the rocker panels (the body looked too shallow to me), replaced the front and eliminated the cooling intakes behind the doors.  The latter are very nice with open slits, but I wanted to convert the car to front engine.  It has a liitle similarity to a F355 or a 512, but I can't find anything really close to it.  So . . . HELP!

Cheetah

I've begun making a Cheetah, starting with clay, then a mold, then resin. I discovered I'm not very good at working with clay. Here are the images I've been using as reference material.
