Silly Week 2021



An old computer mouse ended up as a car in 1/20 scale. Perhaps the getaway car for "The Big Escape" I built some years ago.

I started by disassembly it and removing everything in it. Then I stripped the paint and cut away the top at the rear. 

The recesses in the sides was built up with plastic card and Magic Sculp. Then I filled the hole for the mouse wheel with Magic Sculp.

Two 1/25 scale car seats were put together into a sofa. After some plastic strips, more Magic Sculp and some filler it started to look like something.

A few holes for the front and rear light was drilled before it was time for some paint. I had a spray can of metallic purple that I thought would work for this. 

I decided to add some silver to it as it looked dull in a single colour.
