    very cool project, wouldnt mind having a go with this myself, on that site paper replika how do you get the templates and are they accurate in scale or do you have to enlarge them? Sorry for all the questions

    Would be cool to own a life size speeder, i would park it next to my ZX6R Ninja LOL

    What I am doing is making it as a miniature using them templates, then measuring it and building it fullsize out of posterboard, then I will fiberglass it, add the greeblies, then hitch it to something motorized.

    The dirtbike deal fell through.

    It was in the parade, it looked to be powered by a modified hover-round wheel chair.

    I had to print out some big/scale blueprints for an old project a while back and ran into the same problem for scale prints it can get VERY expensive (especially if you want the blueprints actually blue with white lines) I ended up just printing it with a normal printer on multiple pieces of paper and taping them together with wide masking tape on the back, did the job perfectly and that way I wasn't bothered about folding it up or getting paint and glue on it etc hope that helps?

    http://www.blockposters.com/ may be of some help for poster printing, it's free and it's all done on the web. I've found it useful a few times.

    I just read this whole post and I did not see 1 progress pic. I guess this never happened. Plus this was started in 2009. Very disappointed.
