Here is the challenge for this month, the racing car. Fingers crossed that a few will have a go and I'll post the instructions when I get back from diamond jam at the end of the month.

As a little pointer there are two balloons in the main body of the car ;)

This is the first time I have ever tried to make a model from a picture. I took a picture before I added the driver and stuff in case I burst something. :lol:
It isn't brilliant and I can see a few places where I went wrong BUT I was pleased with it for a first attempt.

It didn't look as bendy in real life. Must be the angle I took the pictures. :D

Here it is without driver:

And now with driver:

Hi Graham,

you said that you would post the instruction of your great car at the end of august.
Would you do that ? I wait every day for it :-)

And your motor bike "Model of the month" is soooo great , too.

I am able to twist a motor bike out of one 260, but I can't twist the model of september :-(

I am looking for a instruction, too.

Where can I get them please ?

Can you or someone give me a little bit help or a youtube video of it please ?


Greetings from germany,


Marc
