Shelby Cobra

My attempt at creating the famous Shelby Cobra, which is one of my favourite cars.

 

It's not an easy car to make, due to the smooth curves of the original, always hard to recreate using LEGO parts.

 

I tried to put as much details as possible while keeping the curved shape. This includes a V8 engine under the hood, a detailed interior and blue racing stripes.

Stickers were applied. A Cobra without badges and racing number doesn't look so good.

 

I wanted to build it in blue with white stripes. However, the blue parts I needed are so hard to find.

 

It was finished just in time for this month's LUGNuts challenge: "The Animal Kingdom"
