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.

Hi Jay.  I just bought the scale motorsports c6r kit, which is a great kit, but, I'm noticing a few things I would need to change to build the 2013 version (60th anniversary).  First off, I noticed that the body needs much larger fender flairs, and the intake is different on the newer cars.  While doing some research for this car (and kit), I found your post on here.  I absolutely love the car you built.  The body looks much better than the kit body.  I checked with Mikes Decals, but they seem to be out of stock, and I was wondering you are considering making another run on these bodies.  I would really love to buy one if you do.  Thanks.
