Clay is used by the automotive industry during the manufacturing process, to evaluate and correct selected designs at the model making stage. Similarly, clay is also used in student projects in the transportation industry.
Everyone who has ever tried to make a model of a car, no matter what material it is made of, knows that it is difficult to recreate the lines of a car, especially without proper training. Despite these things, clay cars creators have created “super products” after a period of practice.
The YouTuber’s most famous works include the Toyota AE86, several BMW models (the latest is the BMW X5 M), the Porsche 911, the Tesla Cybertruck, and the GAZelle Next truck.
It took 52 hours to complete the truck, but the result was very satisfying, even though the YouTuber only used photos as reference. The model is highly detailed down to the paint layer, light set, cabin, engine compartment and undercarriage.
Other car modelers will shelve the finished work and move on to the next project. But the Clay Cars creator is different when he decides to destroy the car.
Unlike real cars, model cars or toy cars made of plastic and metal are not easy to destroy, as they are very small, light and rigid, making it difficult to recreate collision scenes in real life.
However, with clay model cars, the Clay Cars Creator can perform EuroNCAP or IIHS crash tests in the most realistic way. From heavy objects falling on the car to simple collisions, it all shows viewers the consequences of careless driving.
