#635 Favourite Brick Friday: 18969 4x4x13 Curved Panel w/clips

This week's favourite brick is the 4x4x13 curved panel with clips; a very unique and equally useful piece. It was introduced in 2015 for the Friends Hot Air Balloon set, and since has appeared in only 6 sets so it doesn't come in many different colours.

In terms of it's applications, it's perfect for creating balloons, as the clips moulded into the piece allow it to attach to a 2x2 octagon plate, forming a complete shape. The unique curved shape has many other applications though, such as those shown by Grant and Jens.
