Corvette Technical Data

The following dimensions will be the basis for the construction of a 1/5 scale Corvette model. With these dimensions in mind, the photographs will be enlarged to 1/5 scale and Mylar overlaid to produce the necessary tape drawings for the vehicle. 


The tape drawings will then be used as a guide to build the buck for the 1/5 scale model.

For the construction of wheels and tires I will be using several options:


                                          1. Turning out of Ren Shape.

                                          2. Turning out of wood.

                                          3. Construct a spinning jig and spin out of clay.
