Cars the Movie
« on: March 27, 2008, 09:14:24 PM »
I was asked for Lightning from the movie cars. Never heard of it (education problem, I know) so I watched the movie and looked for a model on the internet but could not find any. So I made my own.
This version uses a white and red 5 inch balloon and a red 260 for the frame and a black 260 for the tires.

Since I do not have a lot of red 5 inch balloons I tried to remake it with 260's only. This was with what I came up with, two reds, a white scrap and a black for the tires.
It's a prototype but fast to make and I think kids will recognize it (have to test that though...)

Hi Wim,
As I said, I like your cars figure.
You inspired me to make a car also.

So I had to make my own!

April Balloon Chat Challenge. Car.
« Reply #4 on: April 04, 2008, 05:28:15 PM »
So we have to decide what the next challenge is going to be for April.
How about something beginning with A, then we have the next 26 months sorted :)
or should we have something that someone is struggling to make, so it will help members out.

What about a car?
Or do I have to wait till the C comes up then?

I often get the request for a car, but still have no design that I like.
Oke the car i placed in the cars toipc is nice,....but I'd like to see more!!!
It would be nice to see what kind of cars are made by everyone.

So you an call it a request challenge??  :lol:

I always struggle with a car as well, so it's settled.
The second balloon chat challenge will be a car.

This is the car Ralph Dewey made at the lecture he gave in belgium last month:
[attachment=0:ruvgfwkz]auto ralph dewey.jpg[/attachment:ruvgfwkz]

Thank you Ralph, fot letting me post it. I think it has possibilities to be a quick and cool car.
I'm going to try and make my own version of it.

Sorted a car out today as well, if or when I make it again the front wheels I think need to be 360's as well.
