    Yeah I here ya on the bias. I've tried meta and a few other free programs and I just haven't had that "eureka" moment with them. It's another language entirely. Sketchup, for me, is alot easier to understand in terms of mechanics. Although I'm still a noob when it comes to designing!

    Hello All! :wave:

    Been a while but I found more time to spend on the model. I added the gas tank, detailed the front wheel, started on the front forks, and added the exhaust pipes.

    Lots more to do, but I think I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel (well at least to the unfolding and prototype build steps). :mrgreen:

    I even threw in a line-less render, though I couldn't get the lighting as good as I wanted but did the best I could.

    This may very well be the first non-SF model I'll build if you release it... It looks AWESOME!
    Good job!

    Thanks for the nice comments, everybody :mrgreen:

    I will release it someday but its really hard for me to say exactly when at this point.

    Small update. Handlebars and hand brake/clutch levers are just about done. I tried to spare no detail. Hopefully its buildable.

    Huge pat on the back Loudog, that's actually one of the coolest things I've seen on Zealot in a long while :)

    Usually I'm not a huge fan of custom "chopper" type bikes, but I don't think this one really falls into that category. I think "hardcore" is probably the most fitting word they could have chosen for the bike hehe.

    I certainly think it could be "buildable"... difficult to say the least, but possible. I would offer to beta build it for you, but that's one intimidating bike!

    Lost my hard drive right when I was trying to backup my work wall1 . Luckily I made periodic backups before and only lost a small amount of progress. I had to redo some work though which is mildly frustrating because its hard enough the first time :curse:. Taught me to mirror my data as often as possible.

    Anyway, I added the headlight, the front brake calipers, and front fender. I would say that the entire front end is now complete. Now my work will be on finishing the middle section and small finishing details. I will be ready to add the textures soon :mrgreen:.

    Hi Altair, I migrated this thread to different paper model forum during the tumultuous times last year. I'm a little too lazy to update two forums at the same time so I abandoned this thread...until now.

    The model is complete and available for download at this link:

    Cheers!

    Wow, just found this post. I think I will be visiting that site mentioned above and trying my not so skilled talents on this for my friend who just had to give up his scooter due to a medical problem. I think he might enjoy having something like this around.

    Thanks,
