He purchased a 1:18-scale model, took the measurements, and constructed an exact replica of a 1:1-scale '02 Z06. David used cardboard, masking tape, and hot glue for his construction materials. It took 20 rolls of masking tape and 100 10-inch glue sticks to hold the car together. Metal hinges allow the doors to open and they even have operational key locks! David installed an AM/FM radio with cassette player and real seats. It took him 400 hours to build his "Corvette". The car was built for a school science project and David was awarded a First place ribbon. He brought it to the Bloomington show to display his work and the crowds loved it. The model will be displayed at the National Corvette Museum later this year.
Congratulations David, you are a great addition to the Corvette hobby!
