    Nov 11, 2017, 7:35 PM - 1/4 scale Speeder bike scratch build (Lots of pics) #1

    Hi all,
    Finished this build a few months back. Fully scratch built from acrylic with the main body shaped from mdf. A lot of really fiddly parts to make but it was a really enjoyable build. Also one of the coolest things from the Star Wars universe.

    This looks cool. You did a great job on this project my friend. I remember having the old AMT kit siting on my shelf when I was a kid. Some of my first models were Star Wars kits. Now, I have the a Banda kit...cool but nothing big scale.

    I love this, I had a plan to double up in size the old mpc kit or was it amt, I'm not sure.
    but I'm definitely full of envy for this sweet ride. Top job....peza

    Firstly I love your work. I have one thought.....the front forks look short. Might be camera angle but it looks a little 'stuby'? Easy fix though as it would be easy to add on some length. Now mind you Im going off of the 1/6 scale speederbike on my shelf. And dirty up that thing hahaha, no dirt bike worth its salt is that clean.

    Thanks Lear60man i scaled everything off a 1/12th Bandai, don't know if that model is known for being inaccurate though. Yeah I'm no pro at weathering however i might do it one day when I'm feeling brave.

    Yep peza is correct, its a Big Fig. Not fantastic quality (or articulation) but they look cool displayed on a shelf. The helmet itself looks reasonably detailed though, i guess you could just cut his head off, although that sounds a little like how psychopaths start out, haha.
