Talking Some summer fun stuff for my younger brother!

My younger brother who just gave his eight grade exams is another automobile freak like the rest of us so i thought i'd channel and challenge his passion while he's young..........

Besides making him wash my car in the summer i'm gonna let him build up these cut-outs i found on the net....... This will give him an idea on perspective and how cars are drawn in the 3rd dimension!!!

He's a major car game freak, sat down and finished NFS Underground 2 and NFS Most wanted way before most people had heard about them.............
He's also tried drawing and designing automobiles so i thought this exercise will be apt!!!!







I will probably print these cut-outs on photo paper or something similar!!!

A remote controlled car will do no good, he'll just be playin' with it..... the idea is to apply thought.......

A small kit car with a petrol engine will be fun, but where will i get something like that won't cost me the moon!!!

Very nice!!! I used to have some nice stuff like this on my comp, I'll look around and see if I can find them.


If you could get him cutouts of some great cars (like the 250 GTO you posted), you could also give him a small history lesson, explaining the car's significance in the automobile world and why it is great. It might not be as fun as putting the thing together, but then, still........
