Week TechVideo, 2011 #45 - MINI Cooper Mark I

Sheepo made it again! Another great replica from a real car. 
This time he wanted to make something smaller, but still in the same scale that he uses to build cars. Thus it had to be also a small car... a MINI Cooper Mark I.

Despite its small size, the car didn't lose any of the functions that we are used to see at Sheepo's cars.
It even has a very compact and functional sequential gearbox! 

Among its features, you will find:
  • Opening doors, hood and trunck.
  • Folding front seats to access the rear seats.
  • 4-cylinder transverse fake engine which follows the same order as in real cars.
  • Independent suspension at all four wheels. Like in the real Mini, double wishbone at front and longitudinal single-arm in the back.
  • Front wheel drive.
  • Functional steering wheel.
  • One amazingly small and functional 4-speed mini sequential gearbox (11x10x8 studs size).
  • 1500 parts aprox.

All the PF elements it takes, are:
  • 2 PF M-motors
  • 2 PF XL-motors
  • 1 Battery box

To finalize, you may find plenty of additional information and images, at Sheepo's Garage blog, and also from his Brickshelf folder.

What's next, Sheepo

Not only "Sinterklaas"* comes from Madrid!
Sheepo has proven again that he is one of the best builders in the world.

* Sinterklaas is the dutch verion of Santa Claus!
