Hello there... thanks for visit my posts and comment.
Here I give you my model of the Star Wars saga, the Speederbike 74-Z by Julius Perdana from Paper-replika.com. This one is one of my favorites too and the first one where i modified the model and did some scratch in order to add more details.

I won't show the whole process, just the finished model.

This is it.

Side view.


Top view


Front perspective


Rear perspective


I made some modifications to the bottom of the model to improve it. The original parts were too inaccurated and with some reference photos i change the original configuration of the engine.





The bottom gun also didn't look so good (it was a flat piece of paper) so i made a new one with black cilinders of paper.



And ...presto!...



Then I add some extra cilinders to make the control sticks over the control panel.


Mounted....

This is a really straight and true model of this. Usually, there is something crooked. This looks great!

I drew up a picture of what one might look like with a motorcycle grafted into it! :) Just for fun,

That looks like one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" ideas. So I went looking on google. Here is the first result I found; http://www.bitrebels.com/technology/speeder-bike-motorcycle-replica-build/

Should have known somebody would try something like that.

Oh man that is really cool, but I probably would have been one of the kids beating him up because he had it and I didn't......nah, not really, I would have been begging along with everyone else to try it out though! :)

wow that speedabike looks awsome, ive got to have me one of those on my shelf in my living room!!!. I like how you have made design changes, and found photo refernces so things dont look so flat and featureless, your own stamp on the model and bit of artistic re-engineering touch to it.

great work, i have to say!!1
