    Looks amazing. All that time and attention to detail put in, but then puts wrong seat on lol 😛

    Thanks Stuart 🙂 Good spot!! I did say in the article that the images need to stand up to close scrutiny, and you’ve caught me out already.

    It is indeed the wrong seat, and I’m impressed that you picked that one up. The model is built by overlaying photographs into the model and tracing through. I probably used upwards of 50 different photos from many different sources, and I didn’t do my research properly before selecting the best photo for the seat reference. The original seat is actually much more bench like and not so contoured as this. My scooter doesn’t have an original seat so I couldn’t use that for reference. However, i think this eat looks a lot comfier.

    I hope it doesn’t detract too much, and if this is the only “faux pas” that stands out, I’m happy with that.

      I hope it didn’t come across as a malicious comment, wasn’t meant that way at all…just I can appreciate just how much time and effort that must have taken, my stepdad is a draughtsman who uses 3D CAD. Finished result is exceptional…bar the seat lol (Joke).

      Tim have a look for UK GP Electronic waffle seat…not the coffin shaped bench seat.

        Hi Stuart,
        No mate not at all, comment was taken as intended 🙂
        I’m drawing up a list of things to do next. I’ll take you up on that, and find some images of the Electronic seat. It is after all in a GP livery not DL.

      Faux Pas number three!! It was meant to say 100765 (my birthday). But at some point when playing around I wound it back to 62! Guess I should fix that too.

      Damn your good! How the hell did I manage that! Probably “mirrored” the part at some time.

    Absolutely stunning, but if you want to make some more changes maybe change the crankcase bolts to studs & nuts.
