Scratchbuilt sci-fi hoverbike

This is my first project that I actually finished in years.
I am really not good at finishing my projects so this is hopefully the start of a new beginning…

I was inspired by the hoverbike Rey used in one of the Star wars-movies (I have no idea which).
And it turned out to be some kind of joyride/delivery-vehicle.
This was all about the build and I enjoyed every minute of it, just the way it´s supposed to be.
The finish and painting isn’t up to the standards of the site really, but I hope you all can see past that as this is hopefully the first of many projects to come.

Enjoy and I hope to get some input on what can be improved. Every opinion is much appreciated.

Thank you. I actually thought I put it in the sci-fi forum…

Cool!
I get some tractor-vibes with this. Or racingpod… The build looks clean and not overdone.
Where does the figure come from?

Welcome Snakey, and as Robin said absolutely nothing wrong with the painting or weathering, whole thing looks really great. What scale is the figure ? :+1:

Thanks. I think it started out with some racingpod-thoughts in mind… I guess it could be pretty much anything.

The figure is made from Magic-Sculpt and it was made to fit. It is about 80 mm high so the scale might be 1/24?

You scratch built the figure as well ??

If so that’s even more impressive and a bigger well done is in order :+1:

Thank you all. Very much appreciated.

Yes I made the figure myself. I’m terrible at figurepainting so it’s a shame to ruin someone elses figure :smile:

I think 80mm is a little larger than 1/24. Maybe 1/23 - 1/22?

My 193 cm (6’4") scales to 80.4 mm in 1/24 :grin:
The slightly above average height male fits the 1/22 - 1/23 range …

Lol, yes true. I base all figure scales from a 72" adult.

That turned out really cool. :sunglasses: Excellent work!! :slight_smile:

you’ve done a fantastic job on that scratch built kit and I love the figure as well.
