Mark, your bias is the same as mine. I get more of a sense of accomplishment from something I make rather than just buy.
No comparison between these and my first car models, some of which eventually received the firecracker treatment! LOL!
It is a rare moment when you can wrap a learning situation in a bundle of fun.
You're right there Kevin. I should have said that these builds were 'based-on' the Daytona kit. I took one look at the rear wing assembly, which had an abundance of flash and no locator pins, and thought no way this is going to work!
Teacher's shouldn't have favourite students, but one of the kids really took to this and was sincerely appreciative, so I gave him the Tamiya Spray-work to further encourage him.
Again, thanks for all the reads and responses. Maybe there are some fellow teachers reading this who might try a similar activity in the future.
P.S. I went to a LHS yesterday, and they told me that one of my students had been by last week to buy a model and some supplies. That's the kind of thing that encourages me!

Get those electronic devices outta kids hands and get them actually CREATING something tangible instead!
We really need our youth learning skills like these to keep craftsman in our future. Too much of our world today is just "service" oriented!
