Have had severe difficulties as of late, but in the past week I've finally found time to make customs again. It always seems that one bad turn follows another; and shortly after my grandmother fell and broke three ribs which collapsed her lung my trusty computer (which I use to help her pay her bills online) crashed. Needless to say, last month was not a time I could pay any real attention to customs or leisurely pursuits of any kind. Gladly, I can say that my grandma is recovering and I visit her every other day after work. Also, Obviously, my computer is alive once again after many frustrating nights of fiddling.
Now to what's been on my table the past few days.
The S.N.A.K.E. is patterned as closely to the original as I could manage with the parts I could find. There were liberties taken with the decals in some areas and the dome is not 100% but neither are any kind of distraction. I think it is immediately recognizable as classic Cobra. The most important thing with this for me was to sculpt a new dome for it - without that I don't think it would work. I didn't design it to open, although it still can. Inside is not painted and I cut the guys head off to use with Joes - even though it's a little large.
Undertow is still in the rough sketch phase. I paint and sculpt as I go... and I am unfortunately very impatient, which can lead to thumbprints and crooked lines which have to be re-made or sanded.
Anybody interested in trading for the S.N.A.K.E. can PM me & I'll get them a list as soon as possible. I can't afford to buy anything right now so I actually made the thing to trade for what I've been wanting
Be sure to check out the images full size and offer suggestions if you have them. Thanks.
