Harry's February 2015 Challenge - the [UNFINISHED] project

Postby HARRYMALLARD » Thu Feb 12, 2015 7:39 am

Hello once again, it is Harry calling from the murky depths of whatever page my old layout thread is on!
I've decided to re-enter the forum with a bang or at least a competition entry.

I've settled on using a : carama fire mini cooper with hole previously drilled in the roof (failed light experiment), a faller slow geared motor, and scraps lying around my parts boxes.

All with the total cost of not a penny :D

Potential names list:

Skyblue: TV detector van

Can you tell what it is yet!?

Side note, I'm open to suggestions as to what the side will say!


Cheers, Harry

Well, sadly, as the title reads I didn't finish. If i'd started earlier that may have been different but for a sake of being a honest entrant here is the final picture
I'll try again in the next competition !

It's a fire brigade "Don't smoke in bed" public information van! Superb!
Only a tiny bit of work on the giant cigarette required.

Are you sure?

I think it is a later model of something Terry Thomas drove in the Great Race, or have I got him confused with Dick Dastardly??
