    Vespa 150 from Paper-replika (completed 15/February/09)

    Hello, I'm trying to build the Vespa from juleskrafter.
    A very very big model.
    Actually I'm no sure about the scale.
    I’ post a few photos.

    And I’m not finished yet , the work are about 50%.

    Looking good! How did you do the lamp lens? I can't tell if that's the pattern printed on reflective paper or if you used a piece of transparency and slightly scored it to give the markings in the glass effect. If you didn't, it sounds like it would work pretty easily and add some good detail.

    Keep us posted!

    In fact it's really easy.
    I make a cone (20 x 4mm), in 80 gr white paper glued to aluminium foil. (whit white glue) , the UHU doesn't work.
    Fit inside the cone and put a drop of UHU glue in the centre, as a lamp.
    Finally cut a round acetate and scratch the lines in the inside .Copying the pattern from a photo.
    Close , and finish , easy ,isn't it?.
    If u like to see my complete report , it's here:Vespa 150

    See you.

    Well I'm close to The End , like in Quadrophoenia.
    Lot of changes and a lot of fun.
    The model works well , but for to be more close to the real thing I added some stuff.
    If you build it ,you can chose between the red or Union Jack covers for the motor.
    I choose the Union Jack ones.
    Only build the mirrors and the exhaust.
    Well ,and the girl too.:mrgreen:

    This is The End my only frien The End...

    Well , the final treads of the model.
    I hope you like it:
    Lot of fun in this very big model (1:6,5 scale).
    Hard to work with glossy paper.
    At least 17 elements added to get it more close to the real thing.
    I'm finishing the driver:
