I also see you are from Canada... Where I was born, we used to travel South to get to Canada!
Nobody bit... I was born in Detroit.
Traveled south to go into Winsor, Ontario

Let's see, it'll come down to production cost. Idea was to make something unique...not mass produced, each piece will have production number built into the body of the snake (not simply laser engraved) and possibly paint color options.
Neat project! Beware of copyrights!!!

If you go the “possibly paint color options” route, you NEED to offer all MY GT350 colors, preferably in powder coat!! It can bump up your margins.

Prismatic Powders Coastal Gray is a pretty good match up to AG by the way...

Used to live in Ontario - In BC now.

Not sure about copyright...copyright is for the 2D logo design...I'm recreating a 3d version inspired from the 2d design.
Let's see, I have been trying to find a contact where I can ask or figure out some info on usage.

Exact paint codes will be pretty hard to execute, but will research into it. I will do some colored concepts to see if they will even look good.

Sorry, didn’t see you responded to my comments here.

As for copyright, I think you make some good points. I’d go for it until you get a cease and desist letter:like:

As for the colors, like I said if you go powder coat, Prismatic Powders has quite a palette to choose from!

Good Luck, your 3D proto looks pretty good!

How tall is it?

UPDATE: First prototype 3D Print - in high detail plastic, coated with metallic paint. (may replace glitter metal with a more flatter metallic paint, like the silver on the key fob)

Does anyone know of a list of all Shelby colors + Their paint codes?

Looking good as a proto type & I agree about the metallic paint!
Can't wait to see the final product!!!

Trying to silver metallic color (I think this one looks better)

I think its ready for final prints: Minor sculpt tweaks and do a first set of prints in high quality and smooth finish.

That's looking really good!!! I wish I could help you with the color codes. Actually, I'd be fine to just have one in silver.
