Built for Dan Binks, the crew chief on the #3/#73 Corvette that won Le Mans in 2011.  I mastered the body and had it cast by Celtic Works.  The wheels were designed by Mike Lawrence and printed by Shapeways.  The build utilizes the Revell Corvette ZR1 and Scale Motorsports Trans kit.  The paint is Velocity Yellow topped with 2 part urethane.  The decals are from Patto's and other misc. sheets I had lying around.

Thanks everyone!  The SMS kit I used was for the GT1 C6.R... some pieces are interchangeable.  I had a run of bodies for sale, but they sold out quickly and interest seemed to die out.  For anyone going to the NNL East tomorrow, the completed model will be there.  Also, Mike from Powerslide Decals will have a few of the bodies to sell.  Get there early if you want one!
