I had the idea to bash a cobra when I found on the internet this drawing 3d called "venom". I wondered seeing this design if the designer had worked maintaining the proportions of true cobra. so I opened my jar of polyester putty, and a lot of motivation, is the work in progress:

Maybe smaller wheels. Those slicks look too big.

 

Otherwise looking good. You've got the shape right.

Awesome JOB!!! What's the engine gonna be? Maybe a blown 4.6?? Or.... did you ever see an article about "Daisy"... it was a FoMoCo next-gen concept of the Cobra? Had their V-10 in it.... they even had Carroll Shelby repeat his famous "circle burnout" he did in the original Cobra back in the early 60's.... Just a couple of ideas for the engine...

You are doing an amazing job of replicating the Venom!!!! Can't wait to see it finished!!

Amazing work! I agree the wheels should be a bit smaller though. That would also bring the body closer to the ground.

Amazing!!

 

If you hadn't included the pics I'd have had trouble believing that what lay at the core is ten pounds of putty and an old Cobra kit. Even without seeing it finished yet I think we can all honestly agree that this will deserve to be an award winner
