Hi
Has anyone done a large balloon sport car scuplture. I can't seem to find any examples of any on the web. Will have to wing it from my sons hotwheel cars models... Anyone done one here. Much appreciated with any tips.
Ta June

Thelma did a Pink cadi that looked a little like the Lady Penelope Thunderbird car, I think it's posted here some where.

Asked by a wife who's hubby is turning 40 to do a red sports car, for his mid life crisis. :P
