Small Update on the Speeder Bike

At this point, I consider the construction done. I’ve only added a few minor bits, but here’s a picture (from the other side) of it before I start with the whole make-it-look-like-it’s-not-bare-plastic thing:

If nothing else, I think I put it together okay. I actually picked it up by one of the tan “hand guards”(?), which are the flight sticks from a 1/48 Hughes helo kit (by Academy), and they didn’t snap off. The handlebars aren’t just glued on, either. I drilled out 1/16” holes and used same diameter styrene rod to “peg” it. It was all just an effort to strengthen the build and minimize the breakage along the way.
