Hot Wheels Mini Golf!!!!!!

I modeled this hole after Hot Wheels racing tracks. It starts out with a loop and goes right into a double jump. Its possible to make a hole in one, but only for the most die hard of mini golfers. The Hot Wheels hole will give Tiger Woods a run for his money!

Miniature Golf Course Concept

For my mini golf course I plan to build a 3D Hot Wheels car track and make it functional as a golf hole. When I was younger I used to play with Hot Wheels and I always had a lot of fun making tracks with all sorts of loops and jumps. When thinking of a mini golf idea, the first thing that came to mind was the form of a loop and I instantly got the idea to imitate a Hot Wheels track. I plan to add some buildings and other cars around the hole to make it look more realistic.

Pepakura Object

The Pepakura was a little intimidating at first. For me it was hard to see how the folds would line up to make the object, but as I got further into it, the shape began to take form and got a little easier. I chose this Glock 9mm because it looked fun. Something about a paper gun was funny to me and I think the fact that I could hold it when it was done and it actually felt like the shape of a handgun made it really cool. Im looking forward to using Pepakura more for our mini golf holes and making more challenging objects.
