    This build was inspired by the SW, Anakin, pod racer. I am currently planning another one, a much bigger and radical version. als_new_pics4_zps69rhfrh0.JPG als_new_pics17_zpsrghnvt5z.jpg als_new_pics15_zpsze4l1u0p.jpg als_new_pics3_zpsldc88e3n.jpg als_new_pics5_zpsjjsjtgjg.jpg als_new_pics7_zpsd9rqzlxq.jpg als_new_pics9_zpsqi75f50v.jpg als_new_pics10_zpspndm1pnq.jpg als_new_pics12_zpsfzcv4web.jpg als_new_pics19_zpsl4kzyaoi.jpg

    I can understand the hover phase. There are some roads in Connecticut, that id approached properly, and at around 70 miles per hour, you bike goes 3 feet or ore in the air, and since the backside of the jump is a steep grade, you go quite some distance before you gently touch down. Not for the faint of heart though! I'll be riding again by Monday!!

    Incredibly beautiful models, and extremely well conceptualized, and fantastic execution. They trigger flights of fancy!! :)

    You can do this with a car, too. Except, you might prepare for :robot3: from the girlfriend.

    I regret nothing.

    Wonderfull job Tiking. I also like your figures. Their poses are so live. You made them from scratch or modified existing figures?

    Thank you. The figures are from kits. I am not a good figure painter. I had to struggle to get the results you see. It took some time to do. They are not perfect but I I will get there if time permits.

    This is one of the most intelligently laid out threads I have ever read on this forum. I am going to make this a "STICKY" to encourage others to do this. Excellent, all the way arounnd, models, concept and execution!! :)

    overturned18.jpg overturned15.jpg overturned9.jpg This is a very old model. I like doing odd ball models. Different has always been my theme. And this is no different. The showing of the underside of a truck is just as interesting as if it was right side up.

    From being a childs RC toy to viewable stand a alone model. I like reasonable challenges to creating new ways to model. And this is one of them. The scale is 1/32 front loader from New Ray toys I bought cheap at local grocery store. originall220e.jpg wl6.jpg wl3.jpg

    As you all can see, I've really been into 1/24 scale trucks. I still am. scania_flaklastbil.jpg scania_flaklastbil3.jpg scania_flaklastbil4.jpg
