We couldn’t do without vehicles! Their design has changed a great deal over the years especially when it comes to how they are powered. Look at these unusual vehicles.
A streamlined electric two seater city runabout
A compressed air powered car
A jet powered skateboard
A land yacht
An elastic band powered competition racer called ‘twisted’
A solar powered vehicle
A very old idea for a streamlined vehicle
A very ‘non-streamlined’ vehicle
Designing, making and testing model vehicles is great fun. There are all sorts of ways of making them and powering them - just like the vehicles in the pictures above.
Here are some model vehicles made from card, modeling foam and wooden dowels etc.
