The Lambretta workshop

As I build the two Lambrettas you can see here and here, I needed something like a Lambretta workshop for my city of Hue project. So I scratch build this workshop out of extruded polystyrene , coffee stirrers and cardboard.

It will fit next to, or in between a row of houses I am building at the moment for the Hue project. More about this later. The oil drums, tires etc are 3D printed and the tin roof is made with a device from green stuff world, which turns ordinary cardboard into corrugated cardboard. The posters and signs are from the internet and printed out on paper.

Here is a picture with a Full Metall Miniature for size comparison

A blue one

Here is another Lambretta again 3D printed. This is the same model as the buff one you can see here. This one wasn’t printed correctly. The roof above the passenger compartment was partially missing. So I removed it completely and loaded the Lambretta with things to be delivered to a market. Boxes an oil drum ,fruits ( Melons). The boxes and oil drum are 3D printed too, the fruit were plastic ammo for an air gun.

Tomorrow I show you my Lambretta repair shop for my Hue city project.

A three wheel Lambretta

As I am slowly working on my cityscape of Hue, for the Tet 1968 offensive, I needed some of these vehicles. The three wheelers were and are often seen in Vietnam. As taxi, bus or van stand in. I got a 3D file from Wargaming 3d for a 3 wheeler Lambretta bus. This was printed with my Photon resin printer and then painted in the usual manner. I tried the weathering pencils from AK interactive for the rust effect. I think it works quite well.

The Lambretta sign is printed on paper, varnished with an airbrush and then fixed to the vehicle. I think it looks rather battered and old but thats the look I wanted to get. Now a driver or passengers would be nice. Couldn’t source any till now. Next up a cargo version of the Lambretta.
