I think this will be the final design, its pretty quick to make from three balloons and
a slightly simpler and easier front design to make for when in the real world.

The second picture is with it made from 350's and uses six balloons.

I tried to blend in the bonnet a little better on the 350 as there were a couple of empty spaces.
Not sure it worked well but I'm sure no one will mind....................too much  ;D

I was not to happy with the look though and it was another balloon so just pushed the outer 260's closer together.

That's it for the car design, hope it is of use to a few and you do have  go at making it  ;D ;D

Would be nice if you could possibly buy me a coffee or two as it will go towards the cost of keeping the forum online..

Playing with the car design again,
need to get proportions better but I think I like the 160 look for the wheels better than the 350's.
I think I would make with pinch twist at the front only because its quicker and easier to make this
way but also you can customize each car with initials of the child's name on the pinch twist.

Trying some more variations, still only 5 balloons to make the design.
Still looks too chunky at the front to me.................

I moved the front wheel up slightly as the look on the previous cars was OK but there was something bothering me.
These look better in person than they do in the pictures, I get that sometimes, no idea why.

The un-inflated was to try and add the shape of a door to the design.
Back to the drawing board, he he.
