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 3-section roof made by making incisions at two locations, in order for the roof to be angled:

I used plaster to cover the seat and then it will be painted to give it that leather- worn look later on:






Cutting the leather fabric to fit the seat and back covers:

Upper side Spoilers:






The roof painted. Don't worry about the scratches. They part of the build. :








The extra side mini jet burnes or whatever you what to call them. They will help the bike to do small side movements.

Extra computer gadgets for the inner roof of the bike.

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:

The different components pre-mounted inside the roof. Gonna add decals and do some paint touch-ups.




Not sure about these but I will test them out to see if they might fit in:





The side jet boosters are in place. So far, so good. The whole thing is starting to look awesome.

More plaster used has the back padding for the seat:












Almost done with this build. This is how it looks so far. Will be adding some more details and have a go at weathering it:

This is awesome mate great vision as well as skill. Do you have part kits all over the place? :D

Also, is it useful for those of us who have left over parts on sprues to share these with you and other scratch builders?

Thanks. Yeah. I have lots. I tend to save the parts that may come in handy. :) I have had parts for over a decade now. And they have just been used in this build. :)

Thanks. But as I mentioned in the beginning of this thread, the idea came from a 3D drawing of the vehicle that inspired me. The rest I tweaked to make it my own. Here is the link to the photo 3D drawing: pre13.deviantart.net/7226/th/pre/f/2013/..._jinjorz-d66culu.jpg

That's cool. We all get inspiration from somewhere. Still takes vision and creativity to add your own spin on it :)
