3D Challenge #035 - Scooter / moped

Note: Please read the guidelines for participating in the challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to have fun and bring SketchUp users together and help each other learn and get better at using our favorite 3d modeling program. We will remove comments that are objectionable or offensive.

This week's challenge:

Scooter / moped

This week we are going to model a small engine powered vehicle, the scooter or moped. A scooter or moped is a style of two-wheeled motor vehicle with certain design characteristics such as a step-through frame, small wheels and a small engine. These characteristics are the differences between a scooter and a motorcycle. The scooter was designed as a short range motor powered vehicle, which could be easily used in a city environment. The motorcycle on the contrary, was designed for speed and a relative long range. Modern scooters cover a broad spectrum of designs: step-through or step-over frames, small or large wheels, front fairings or floor boards, under-seat storage or not, and manual or automatic transmissions. Still famous around the world are the scooters from the italian manufacturer Vespa. The only restriction for this challenge is that motorcycles are not allowed, the challenge is about scooters or mopeds.

Good luck ALL!

  5. I would like to recommend for challenge, a steering wheel. Possibly for a car, truck, boat, ship, heavy equipment, etc... Maybe including the dashboard or associated equipment? Just a thought.

  6. Some other suggestions for upcoming challenges: An Mp3 Player, Keys (car, house, etc...), an aquarium, a set (like for a movie, or broadway show), playing cards, and a webcam.
