The Beluga scooter model was comprised of about seven parts, two of which I lost, the kickstand and license plate. No biggie, I still had the important parts to build the scooter. So without further ado, here is the little scooter:

Paint color is Tamiya Mica Red over grey primer. I used a silver Sharpie marker for the wheels after painting the tires with black primer. The orange and red lights were also done with Sharpies and the headlamp was done with a Molotow pen. A fun little project that should have been done years ago instead of sitting on my workbench for the last almost five years. Thanks for looking and enjoy your evening.
