An Actual Teardrop Shaped TTT

Postby mezmo » Wed Jan 10, 2018 11:16 pm

I happened upon this from a link from a link on a web page I was looking at.

It's called the "WindChime" and is a German fiberglass very tiny TTT.

Windspiel [Windchime] A true teardrop shaped German TTT built in 1962
with only 5-6 built. It weighs ~ 300kg or ~660lbs. The tail lights and roof vents
on the one known surviving example are modifications on the original.

I LOVE IT!!! What a cool design. The bed/settee is like the "v" berth in a sailboat. An amazing amount of stuff in a small area. Thanks for sharing.

Still looking for the build journal link, but someone on this forum built a similar but larger aerodynamic design. Here is the picture of it:

The original German version - very "Buck Rodgers Meets Will Robinson" , while later version, if painted black, very Darth Vader........Wait, I'm writing this stuff, and I am NOT a sci-fi nerd (I swear) :shock: .............jd
