About “Little Nova II **1/24" scale MODEL CAR**”

This is a 1966 Chevy II **1/24 scale MODEL CAR** That I built over 10 years ago and it is still together. It has won many model car contests through Hobby Town and a first place in it's category at the Hot Rod Magazine Model Car Nationals held in Omaha, NE back in 1993. The nationals were sponsored by AMT/Ertl models, Hot Rod magazine, and Championship Auto Shows. It was an honor to win this category with this model. My first big event and I won many places with five models never placing less that third. I actually won the 1/24 scale model car class with another model. This Chevy II has been claimed to be one of the best around and cleanest builds.
