    I've seen the future of the 1:6 hobby.

    One of the architects of the 1:6 hobby in the future is Calvin Lo.



    I hope to contribute to this worthy endeavor and be a part of it.

    Calvin, very interesting effort. I imagine you put a lot of time into this. The bike itself is not a winner, but you have great skill and an artist's eye. I think you need to bring your mechanical knowledge up to speed a bit. The cylinder head, from a 4 cylinder car engine, is out of place and the 4 open exhaust ports don't look right. The transmission is too small, ( I guess you used 1:24 scale parts for mock up ? ). Random cylinder jug at the lower front of the bike doesn't work, it looks like too many random plastic model pieces glued together.

    This is meant as constructive critisim, I like the idea of a B-17 on two wheels, but the idea needs more refinement.
    Hope to see a revised version soon!

    Million thanks for the critique Pontiacivan, I love it! Obviously I am not a biker, as much as I wish to be... nonetheless, I am well aware of the points you pointed out, this, like u said is a mock up prototype, not the actual thing, just to get the size and shape and "sitting" plan right, once it has been scan to 3D, a lotta parts will be modified, to make sense and in scale.

    Really appreciated! Look forward to your comments again in the next rendition of this design, heartfelt!
