    Hi everybody.
    A little diversion from my usual genres: a little new mini cooper.
    I took the model from http://www.kamigei.com/.
    It is a one-piece model.
    I've rescaled by 130% and added four wheels

    I've cut out the original wheels and used it to make 3d wheels

    There are some gaps between parts that needs to be filled with some colored paper on the inside, and here I pay the price of choosing a paper too thick: 200g/mq (110 lb) is too thick!

    Now I need to create some wheel support and the rearview mirrors, not present.

    Great start on your Cooper.Some better Mini Coopers can be had here, and more variations: http://www5b.biglobe.ne.jp/~kamaboko/1_30model/

    Many colors also. Many other British cars. These are a bit more detailed, I think you like them. They are 1/30 scale, so resizing might not be necessary.

    Direct Link to Mini Cooper = http://www5b.biglobe.ne.jp/~kamaboko/1_30model/pg20.html

    I think the Rally version is awesome, as is the pickup version! Link = http://www5b.biglobe.ne.jp/~kamaboko/1_30model/pg19.html

    Back to Zealot after some times...
    here's the completed new mini... I'm not satisfied with the result... maybe I'll rebuild it, somewhere in the future.

    I've build another one sheet model, without modifications. Very fast build.

    ok... moving on with other projects

    Try one of the ones above, they are the old style, but come out better than the one you built.
