How fast you did this ! Thanks a lot !!!
I have an interrogation about the nose. You selected to respect the drawing more then the wind tunnel model. Maybe that model would have lead you to look too much like the Ferrari 312T?
I don't know. But I'm really not fond of that nose.
Would it be possible to get 2 versions of the nose? This one and the thinner one featuring in the wind tunnel model + winglets?
In any case, this is not meant to be a Wookey Smile It is meant to feature into the Wookey story as a 1975 Matra return to competition predating the 1976 Ligier.
Pilots are JP Beltoise and H Pescarolo.

Amazing work !
Just a question : is it really a Matra MS73+ Hewland FL200 at the back? the rear part looks like very low, like for a flat 12/transversal gearbox

This is a project in itself, so I create a specific thread for it

I think there are two possible versions:
The first (very similar to the Ferrari 312B3-74):

And the second (perhaps more similar to Shadow DN7):

The choice is yours...

Very ironic indeed Luigi. Dont feel compelled to do both Wink It is only that we have 2 different sources with very different noses. Hard to choose. But the choice is yours. Thin, large or both noses, as you wish. For what I can see from the plans, it seems they are closer to a thin nose... But in fact, in those years many makes did different noses (think about McLaren M23)
