Very cool Kim. Just saw this for the first time.

Look forward to more. Will there be a figure in your build?

hi wesley this little project is growing.i am planning a street corner with people and a few shops and a square but this changes all the time.i want to build most of it out of paper with water colours[love watercolours].i am finding non military figures a bit of challenge in 1-35 but they are there if not expensive-i dont think it is going to be a crowd.
i want to keep the theme australian, again i dont know if this is possible but this is part of the fun .
kind regards kim

Wow, Kim, you're really making quick work of this ... while paying attention to the detail ... nice!

Marc's "suggestion" is a mess ... except those tiny little fenders on the front wheels just somehow give it a little "magic" ... not to mention the possibility of using that thing to pick up passengers where-ever and whenever you want, whether they like it or not!  Could be fun.  Just sayin' ...

Cheers,
Dallas

When I was in Vietnam 1970-1971 .. never took a taxi .. at least a 'car' taxi. We used the cyclo (or cycle rickshaw) with a motorcycle as the motive power. The ones in Saigon and Can Tho were both three-wheeled .. except one was a pusher and the other had the seats behind. I forget which was where..

hi all -marc that motar bike should be a small plane come glider.it would have a large wing span and a tail assembly somewhere.the three wheels are fine maybe the prop would be at the back attached to the motar by a chain.the frount cargo carrier is fine it could be used as a mail carrier[in sacks]/i just thought it could have floats for water.how about a girl postperson on the motar bike plane landing on the water in a bikine[of course 1-22 scale for all the detail]
the load has to be added to my red cargo bike i already feel sorry for the pedeller i hope it is on the flat.those cycle rickshaws are very tempting there seems to be a variety of passenger protection from fixed to a fan awning variety.funny i was just thinking of vietnam just the other day it is great that after all those years of war it has found peace.
mobile phones are amazing [we dont call them cell phones here in oz].i can be sitting in a cafe outside sydney and log into westlake publishing and check out what russ is having for dinner[3 d is coming]
anyway all the best kim

hi all  i hope all is well with you all .
my cargo bike is growing my last effort is the addition of a peddler.

.

through this forum i was introduced to the french company MK35 and there range of 1-35 civilian figures i like them.
i bought a few including the peddler.i had to cut and fill a bit of him to fit on the tamier bike.i was a bit of a fiddle to set him up but all worked out .now for the cargo ,i have been thinking of 2 different versions.
any way as they say on tv -have a modelling day
kind regards kim

Kim, some of your earlier photos are missing. Apparently you linked them instead of uploading the originals to this forum. The only way to ensure your images will remain is to upload them. -- Russ
