'Just chilling' (with a hover vespa)

March 14, 2022 · in Diorama · · 18 · 1.3K

Another build. This one was a fun build. Rather quick to build. I made the vespa to look as it is actually hovering in some of the photos. I managed that, by gluing the figure to the bike and using the curb to gain extra height, the vespa seems to be floating above the ground. I thought it was a pretty cool attribute. The scale is 1/24.

  1. This is great Charles, a brilliant concept . I love the way you've made it seem so ordinary , it's like she's thinking "yeah I've got a floating Vespa - so what" .

  2. Simply amazing, Charles!
    What a concept! What a rendition!

  3. Very interesting! I like it.

  4. Great work, Charles @tiking
    Love the way how you created the 'floating' effect and used the curb to make it more visible.
    So it seems youth will still be hanging around on their Vespa's.

  5. Very clever using the figure as the support.
    One would think by now we could buy hover-Vespas. I'm still waiting for my flying car that folds into an attaché case.

  6. Not just the king of weathering but the king of innovation, very nice!

  7. I think I had a hover mower once, when I had a garden. I hate gardening, along with DIY, two things I don’t have to do in China. I also had a Vespa scooter many years ago, it didn’t hover though. Your model is great, a real kerb side kit, keep them coming.

  8. Very inventive. Using the figure for the support is very interesting and not something one would think of right off.

  9. The hover vespa concept - Awesome, the oil or fuel filter - Priceless! Beautiful work.
