Ford GT model out of the blocks

August 19, 2015

If you can’t wait to see more of the forthcoming Ford GT there’s always the option taken by Alexander Pinheiro Paschoaletto – build your own.

For the 18-year-old engineering student from Brazil, this painstakingly crafted model combines two of his great passions.

“I’ve always been a fan of the legendary GT40 and its history at Le Mans, so when I heard of the new generation of GT I had to build one,” said Paschoaletto. “Most models take a week to complete at most, but the GT took ten days – with one entire day spent just on the doors.”

Measuring 270 mm long, 110 mm wide and 80 mm tall, the model consists 950 pieces.

Paschoaletto already has a few more models in his sights after finishing his Mechatronics Engineering course at the University of Brasilia.

“The 2013 Shelby GT500 and Focus RS500 are two incredible cars – the original GT40 is in my plans as well,” he said.
