WIP Dirk Bike

Post by blatdriver on Thu 07 Feb 2013, 11:48 am

This is just a quick rebuild of a toy dirt bike, had to rebuild some of the frame, take it apart to repaint, just need a figure to put on it Dakar rally style.

This is all the parts



And this is the mock up, still don't know what colour to use yet

Should be a tough looking bike...those Dakar rigs are something to behold.

I hate the toy plastic, it's too soft, but it should be ok, by the time I put some dirt & dust on it, and this one will be a little different

Hi Guys

I have finally got around to putting these up
This is the bike in parts, the pins in the wheels are to hold it up




This is the base made of fine sand & bond create


This is the base with the wheels etc pined in


This is the bike before final touches and weathering


This is the toy that I started with


This is the two bikes the yellow toy and the green mock up


A close up of the mockup.


Thanks for looking
