Mono/Jet Bike
Posted by Tiking on Monday, May 17, 2021 6:22 AM

This is something I have been working on, for the last couple of days. I started of with a 1/12 Yamaha race bike from Tamiya. I kept most of the original details but modified and scratch built some to fit the theme. The model is resting on a stand I kit-bashed from parts from the same kit and a piece of styrene. The used parts from other bike kits, that I had saved from other older builds I just a couple more details to add before I am satisfied.

Thanks. Yeah. This is a semi-hover-mono-wheel bike. :)

Excellent scratch-bash-build!  It would fit easily in the MaK 'verse, too.
