Okay...this is KOOL
« on: March 29, 2014, 03:49:49 PM »
Heres a new "kool" topic...

Feel free to post a pic you find, of something you think is kool.
Try to stay related somehow to my KoolWheelz models and paper models.

You know...the kind of stuff that would make a really cool KoolWheelz model
...but will probably never get designed. lol

Or just enjoy the pics that are shared.

Captions and Comments are MOST welcome.
(ooh reminds me of the Funny Caption thread!)

...
For example...
I thought this Bug was sooooo cool.
I love VWs and I'm always thinking about what I can turn into a KoolWheelz paper model.
Unfortunately this is too complicated for papermodel (by me),
but I still thought it was amazing ...and I wanted to share it!

This is not a new design, but I loved it when I first saw it.
The car was designed by Lotus for Hot Wheels.
A couple of large scale mockups were made and eventually Hot Wheels released a version of it.
Unfortunately, its a little to curvy complicated for me to replicate in miniature KoolWheelz paper.



Hot Wheels put out at least two versions that I know of...
one in the original orange paint scheme
and this one:

I've heard you mention Nascar before, yet there is a gaping hole of Nascar vehicles in the KoolWheelz collection.  Is it a copywrite thing?

yeah, I love NASCAR (as well as other Racing series)
but because of the models from Cami and a couple of other designers
I never felt the need to produce any myself.
Plus, there have never been any requests.

You just changed that.

I have an interest in the old Kyle Petty #44 Hot Wheels car, so that
will be added to the list. Can't say at this point what other NASCAR
(if any) will be added, but you never know.

Fine choices to start with Dave - colorful, peculiar or just plain weird. I follow that line and suggest this:



Please include this to the Koolwheels collection! Oscar Mayer's Wienervan.

I love the Weinermobile too!
It has been on the Koolwheelz list for a long time...but I have no idea how
to represent the "weiner" ...and keep it simple and small.

As you can see, I am a big fan of the Weinermobile.
There have been many variations and versions over the years.
I like the older versions.

You would almost have to have petals, I'm sure.  That compound curve for the 'fuselage' of the weiner could be a bit awkward.

Does it really differ that much from an airplane fuselage? Split it in sections and work it out. It will be a blast.

Keep in mind...if its a "KoolWheelz" model, it is supposed to:
a. be about 1/60 scale.
b. be as few parts as possible.
c. fit on to one page if possible.
d. be as simple as possible without losing its recognition.

The Weiner is not too difficult to do as a paper model,
but not with the KoolWheelz restrictions.

This is why I usually simplify shapes as much as possible.

I could make the weiner a simple straight tube, with one angle bend near the middle.
The ends would have to be flat...petals ...or domed parts.
Since I...and many others...hate petals...I would probably go with domed parts.

Time to go hunting for some more photos of all the different Weinermobiles!

Would a petal with a cap work?  I saw that done on an aircraft once and thought that it was a good idea
