This build was inspired from a 3D artist drawing of a wasteland hover bike, I found on the net. The 3D drawing gave me the fuel to build something similar. But as always, I kind of like to tweak things to give it my personal design. The build is a mixture of 60% kitbashing and 40% scratch building. So here is my Wasteland hover bike, the fourth(and last. For now at least of hover crafts I have completed over period of time),: I will then jump back to renovating a truck build, I'd been planning for some time.
Unfortunately, I decided to take pics of this build, whilst I was in the middle of it. So the actual beginning stages are not shown( things like me cutting the roof and chassis of the outer shell of the bike) But you can pretty much see how it was done. So the wip photos are at a minimum. So do not expect part-for-part photos of everything I used. Sorry. It will be rather quick. To get the various angle I just sparsely cut the different section plastic card into 3 sections then bend each sections carefully to get the angle I needed.
I used several kits, varying from Italeri M977 to Tamiya bike kit(of course). A MAN kit part was also used in the making. Everything from small house materials to tiny kit parts with different dimensions. The parts that I could not find, I just scratch built. So, I hope you like the build. It is 95% completed.
The monitor has a gyro sensor mechanism built in to the monitor itself. Has the driver pushes away the handle bars the signal is sent to the on-board computer which in turn moves the bike into the requested position given by the driver. Almost like a segway, but more advanced:
The monitor painted. I will need to add a wire from the simulated brake grip to the monitor:
Extraordinary! And what they all said. Wow! *Rude word* awesome etc.
Inventive, creative, inspiring stuff.
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research
