I like the clear on the first car and the wheels on the second.

SNAP, so do I. The clear on the first is the round, gives a more pleasing look to the eye, well we both think it does anyway.

I made another car, similar to my racing car on model of the month but I was playing with using round balloons for the wheels/tyres.

One of the car designs came up on my facebook page saying it was from three years ago.
So I thought I'd have another play with a more quick and easy car for the real world.

So the car evolved a little in the pictures and I did not look here before I started to play.
The second one has an engine area and also the back section slightly separated for more of a racing car shape.

All are just two balloon designs.

We then made the top rear spoiler wider at the top and added an
extra pinch twist for the steering wheel to sit better.

I made these during the week but have not had time to post them.
Just some variations on a theme, the wheels are a 350 and not 260.

Then using a 350 for the body and 160 for spoilers, which does not look right to me.

I made the two balloon car at the balloon workshops this week in Airdrie and Halesowen.

So today I up-scaled them to a four balloon car made from 350's.
Made them in the real world today and they went over VERY well.
