Disposable cones

SketchColor618
Tip:  While waiting for my doctor in the exam room during a recent visit my eyes wandered, looking for modeling ideas. I noticed a wall rack containing disposable cones – the ones doctors clip onto the little light they use to look into your ears.

There were so many hanging there that I couldn’t resist sticking a few in my pocket. These make great traffic cones! The taper is perfect and the material thin enough that the hole in the top is in-scale.

Cut roughly ¾ of the top off, add a square styrene base, and paint it orange for a scale traffic cone.

Ken: While we certainly don’t condone liberating such items from your doctor’s office, this is a great idea. Maybe ask for a few cones next time.
