Mini Cooper
5-wide scale
About this creation
With racing stripes and checkered flag roof.

   Mini Cooper. Most of my cars have 6-wide bodies, so I decided to do a 5-wide to make things truely "mini".

   The use of the checkered roof helps to soften the visual impact of the black antenna base.

   With the racing graphics, this was one of my more fun cars to build. Perhaps I should see if all the parts are available in dark "British Racing" green too?

   The greenhouse is perhaps a 1/2 stud too long, but trying to correct this by shortening the wheelbase by a full stud looked even worse.

   Chrome front grille and round headlights.

   Front view. I had to use black 1x2 slopes in the center of the front and rear windshields. This element does not yet exist in trans-black.

   If you look closely in the corner of the rear right hand bumper you can see the exhaust pipe.

   Chrome door handles.

Quoting James Burgon As a Mini owner this is the best recreation i've seen! I want to build this myself for my work desk with no stripes and a white roof. Do you have any instructions or guidelines?
Sorry. I don't have any instructions.

Great Design ! Very detailed. I am not sure you would like to join the "5-wide studless cars' club" as you build at a bigger scale but this MOC would be a superb addition to it.

awesome roof; I'm guessing fitting the British flag on there wasn't gonna' happen given the 5 studs wide you had to work with. Love it!

I didn't think it was possilble to have so much detail on such a small scale. I'm very impressed by all of your creations. You should build a mini in the Mr. Bean style.

It's indeed really good, but maybe you could make it 1 stud shorter.

Good stuff. There is no mistaking, that IS a mini! Kind of reminds me of Mr. Bean. Man, that was a hilarious show. But he had the old model, this one here looks like its the new, and might I add, safer model :P . Excellent!
