I will try a new inline fuse in the pedal car later . Fingers crossed .
The reason why I made a large drawing of a Cooper T53 was to have a go at using an airbrush. I will have another look at tread on the tyres later. I may have made the block pattern a bit small which may be causing the problem .
I may go and make another hot drink .
I've been doing a bit of remembering the past and in a bit of a nostalgic moment clicked on buy it now button , so I'm expecting a parcel to arrive somewhen soon .
What is it ? It's a Dinky Alfa Romeo racing car !
It brought back memories of how we used to race cars across the playground in infant's school back in the 60's. Quite a few didn't last long as the playground sloped towards the centre where there was a central drain waiting to catch them .
I'm not sure but I think that most of the car's must have been hand me downs from older brothers as the car's used were from the early 50's. Maseratis, Alfas , Ferraris and Cooper Bristol's.
I think a few of us ended up with scraped knuckles .
Oh! I used my brother's Maserati. I couldn't get a Cooper Bristol .
I've had a bit of success with the electric pedal car this morning . I fitted a new inline fuse and holder and have power to the volt meter on the dash . I also found that if you turn a knob on the dash you get the sound of an engine starting and revving ! There is also a button that makes a sound of a horn . So I have power going so far but not to the electric motors yet . Maybe s break in a wire somewhere ?
