TitleModel Using Plastic Packaging

CategoryBuilding the Vehicle

CommentWhen you purchase small tools, hardware or electronic products, many times they will be packaged in semi-hard clear molded plastic that is either glued to a cardboard sheet or sealed to another plastic sheet.

I often save the packaging if it has an interesting shape and use it for model building. Smaller “bubbles’ can be cut to provide cowling or “cockpits” for pinewood cars.

Last year the Batmobile had a dome that began life housing an MP3 Player. Be creative!
