Not only this motorbike, but also the set and photography will simply amaze every fan of motorbikes. My previously built Aprilia motorbike kept me so inspired, that I decided to build another motorbike in white. Based on almost the same building pattern as the Aprilia motorbike (please visit my other pages), I built this model in under three weeks, a shorter time span. You can read the story behind the assembly of this scale model and enjoy watching the pictures.
About this creation
This model doesnít look that different from the outside, but it is very different from the inside than my previously built Aprilia RSV4 motorbike. The MV Agusta looks heavier and contains more parts, but it weighs lighter than the Aprilia and at the same time they share the same excellent maneuverability. Both motorbikes are driven by four cylinder motors. The difference is that the Aprilia contains a Lego predesigned cylinder engine and the MV Agusta contains a self-built cylinder motor. The self-built motor is actually a modified version of the mk6 four cylinder engine that I built before (please visit my other pages). Compared to The Lego cars like my Lego Ferrari GT4 or my Lego V10 Pickup truck, the MV Agusta contains more parts per square centimeter. The smaller I build, the more packed and detailed it gets.
There always are so many ways to build a scale model, so I didnít stick to one way, but tried different techniques. I built ten, twenty and sometimes thirty different sub-assemblies to eventually choose the one that resembles the best to the real thing. Regularly things didnít work out as I planned, but that is the way how things work. Later I realized what I was going wrong and I constantly solved problems about building the motorbike as compact as possible. The best thing was to sleep over it and continue the next day.
After finishing my Lego motorbike I had in mind to present the motorbike scale model on a different way than just taking photos and posting them. I wanted to present the motorbike on a special way. Personally I hate presentations, but when I have to do it, I donít want to shy away from the audience. In this case, I want to enjoy the presentation by presenting the motorbike as if it is a life-size motorbike on a stand on a motorbike show. First I did some research on how people present their stuff on conventions, shows etc. Thatís how I came up with this idea.
On shows and conventions, lots of manufacturers and franchises sponsor the show by publishing their corporate logos as much and as superimposed as they can. On paper cups, napkins, even underwear and other merchandise goodies etc. everywhere brands are imprinted. I cooked up some non-existing brands for my own use to prevent copyright infringement and I stuck them on the background of my stand miniature.
I designed three corporate logos as fictional sponsors. The first is Sidh Arts and it represents me as a artistic designer. The second is Senzu-Ella, a fashion line that stands for sensual office fashion, which I created as a very controversial fashion company. In that way I express the MV Agusta sports bike as outgoing, sensual and elegant. I designed the third brand Shakti Jahaj (vigorous freighter) as a distributor and deliverer for motorbikes and loose parts. It's written in superimposed Hindi letters, because I'm proud of having Indian ancestry. The motive behind this fictional company is that I personally distributed the Lego parts from box to the assembly line on the working bench. Finally I deliver and show you the motorbike.
This is absolutely fantastic and I can't believe I missed it. it deserves so many more views and comments. The shaping and styling is brilliant. love those exhausts. I collect the official motorbike sets and would buy this in a flash. I have started a similar build myself but I doubt it will turn out as beautiful as this.
