Darin Wick

Look what Darin Wick has made! I like the short seal like tail. Contrary to my design of the plywood velomobile (or better the design of Bart Verhees) in Darins design the seams are in the longitudinal direction. The effect is beautiful lines but a lot of work to connect them. Quest-style closed wheel boxes are easy to imagine too. Darin published a python script to plot the parts.

  1. Very Nice indeed.
    Using the stitch and glue method would be a good method to connect the panels.

  4. Hello! Thanks for the link! As Rudolf suggests above, I intended to use stitch and glue for joining the panels. The design is inspired by Friend Wood's beautiful wood velo: https://plus.google.com/app/basic/photos/105053136520471653574/album/5216693288313541713

    The project was on hold because I've been traveling recently, but I may have time to build it in the next few months.
