Piaggio Vespa

July 23, 2021 · in Automotive · · 16 · 2.1K

This is a 1/12 scale(not a hundred procent sure) I bought cheap at a local vendor. I added a cracked glass where the speedometer was, as it was just a piece of decal. Made a cut in the seat and added some inner material and did some heavy weathering. I left the wheels as is, because it was difficult to remove, and I didn't want to ruin the support attachments. I'll just say, the owner changed out the wheels and put on new tires before he started renovation on the vespa itself.
