Curious Constructs - 28mm Bike Preview

Okay, it's another Curious Constructs post this time, though work on the Vendetta continues (and is actually going quite well with most of the edge highlighting done, yay!).

I've cut back on my own sculpting projects for the store at the moment as I'm busy getting on with other things, however, happily other projects which I've comissioned are starting to take shape! The first of these is a 28mm non-super human sized bike. I've previewed this on the Curious Constructs Facebook page, as well as on a number of forums, and now I'm going too here as well! I'd love to hear your feedback on this work in progress piece.

Yes the handlebars are missing, and yes there will also be a seperate rider kit.

I like it very simple design. I look forward to the rider option. Have you thought of using your rough rider variants?

Good simple design. Can't wait to see more.

Very cool! I'm a big fan of the motorcycles-as-rough-riders idea, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of this project!

Keep up the great work!

Positive responses - this is promissing! Thanks for your comments guys!

The Riders are still on the drawing board for now, I'm waiting until I have a print of the finished bike in my hands so I can get the rider spot on. I'm thinking something a little retro though!

Unfortunately the Roughrider bits won't be out of box compatible, the poses would be all wrong.

Oh and in case you are wondering, the design is based on a early Triumph's!

As someone who has been playing a lot of Early WWI Germans lately - I don't suppose there is any chance of a Sidecar addition in the future?

I admit it's a niche part, since I have no doubt most of them you'll sell for Rough Riders, but you never know until you ask!

Early WWII even /facepalm

Wow these are what im looking for for my Cadian guard rough riders. Or will these be a SM alternative. BTW Col Gravis I love your blog. The Pretorians have always been my fav IG models of all time.
