Hendrick Chebanga(35), from Hammanskraal in Pretoria, has been building model vehicles since he was a child. He is capable of creating a near-identical automobile model from a photo. He claims to be able to build practically any type of vehicle, including boats, bicycles, airplanes, and helicopters.

He began his craft at the age of four and has amassed quite a following.  His customers now come from all around Africa and the United Kingdom. Two of his model automobiles were shipped to the United Kingdom.

Chebanga recently discussed his most recent project and the challenges he had in completing his sports car. He has subsequently requested assistance from the South African government, claiming that it will benefit the entire country in the long run. 

Chebanga claims his handcrafted sports car can compete with some of the world’s greatest machine-made automobile brands. As his workload grows, he thinks of increasing his business tools. He also intends to hire someone to work with him. So long as people continue to support his work, these goals are extremely near to becoming a reality.
