    its one of the levitation bases , you might have seen them with a globe ? basicly just a huge magent

    and its a modified aoshima model, was originaly a 4x4 off roader type battery car

    Yep, I've seen them. Globes and all kinds of stuff.

    Well done !

    Did you have any problems 'balancing' it, or with the weight ?

    the base takes a item of up to 85 grams , so finding a car that was under that and takes the magent was the worst of the job

    its pretty hard to get it hovering but once its there its not too bad at all

    lol, i was under the impression from the photo that there is a quad fan blowing under the wheel... but this is even better, a permanent hovering delorean!

    no theres not any fans , its dead silent

    in the video the magent wasnt fitted perfectly straight so the car wanted to spin , it will sit dead still when you get it right

    Great Job Steve. In the past many had suggested using those levitation bases for hovering lightweight BTTF DeLorean models, it's good to see that someone finally pulled it off.

    Really, really cool! :)
    I searched a bit around and those bases seem unfortunately not quite cheap...
    But it´s tempting. :love

    Cool! Nice job!

    Man I'm thinking land speeder, death star, forbidden planet saucer -- lots of potential.
