1963 Peel P50
Normally I don't put a car in my "Large Cars" folder unless it's 12 or more studs wide. But in this case, this car is actually about the same scale as my Mazda RX-7. So why model this tiny car you ask? Yeah, this is my entry for this month's LUGnuts build challenge. This time we had to build a car that represents a superstition, or a phobia. I chose to represent claustrophbia, or fear of confined spaces. There is nothing smaller then the much-hated Peel P50! It's only 54 inches long! Claustrophobics beware...
About this creation
As if a tiny cabin wasn't bad enough, the little Moped motor will hardly get you up to 30 MPH...

Back view. Notice the handle for picking it up and rolling it like a suitcase.

Be careful not to drive between two busses with this thing. CRUNCH!!! Bannana Peel Sandwich, anyone?


Front view. The curvy, stubby front was difficult to capture.

Side door opens. Yes, the real car only has one door too.

The interior is really boring. Not much you can do in such a small place.

Poseable wheel arms. This was just a humerous feature I discovered due to the way I built it.

The nifty thing about the P50, is that you can carry it wherever you want! Watch the video below for a better understanding.

Construction of the car was pretty simple. The only hard part was centering the rear wheel.

Here's one of the most memorable Top Gear reviews of all time. This P50 review is absolutely hilarious! Watch it! Watch it!

Nice, Loved that episode of top gear. You have to build the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust, AKA the electric car the hosts of top gear make.

Oh Ape, generally I hate British cars... But that's probably because Jeremy Clarkson goes around talking about how fat Americans are. But, I have to respect some really impressive cars coming from the UK... Bentley... My brother also likes Jaguars a lot... And RR, Range Rover, Ariel, MG... Tons, man. But still, I don't like it how Jeremy Clarkson hates American cars. I like the big lumbering Buick from time to time - what's wrong with a cheap, everyday, huge Buick? But I like UK cars, I have to admit ;)

Brilliant! A nice change from all the V8 stuff on MOCpages. Fantastic details, it's the small things which add up to make a good model; like the wiper, wing mirrors, handle etc. I reckon you have a bit of a thing for cr.ap British cars, you've made two now! We do make some good stuff as well!!

I think my favorite aspect of this MOC is that the real thing is only about 4 inches longer than this ;-) I think us Americans could benefit from a new line über compact (cars?) such as these. Sure it might take five hours to travel ten miles but that shouldn't make much of a difference in L.A. rush hours. Besides, with all of the coin you'll save on gas you could buy your boss a very convincing fruit basket as an appology. All this and you can just wheel the little guy into your office! Hmm... I'm going to go call the local patent office. Peace - Patrick

WOOHOO buddy.. what is THIS!!??? Actually I love this to the bones! well as small note you also could enter with this as fear of "SOME ONE STEALS ME AND THE CAR TOGETHER!" or as fear of "NO REVERSE" or also fear of "loud noise when the people see this and laugh!" ;p oh man this is the "FEAR ITSELF" Great Work buddy, you really captured the shape perfectly, I like the Rolls Royce style door! ;p Keep it SCARY ;0 >>> peace..

First comment! Yee-haw! I love it! I think the wheels are a bit... You know... But the intire tinyness of it all is soooo cute! And why was the P50 hated? I rather like it... I prefer the Peel trident, of course. But still, I think that this little model is very realistic! You should order one on LDD in blue and send it the the TopGear presenters as a desk ornament. It's just beautiful, man, and I think it's really cute how you made the little round "cyclops" light in front :D I didn't know it had only one door ( would it hurt to add another on the real deal?) but still, I like it. Keep it up, man! Keept it up and don't forget to eat one of those *laughs out loud* Banana Peel sandwiches! *Yuck*. But anyway, nice car. Try making the Trident now! It must have been quite a lot of work, no? ;) Keep it up, man. Raphy G :)
