Since a lill kid (im now nearly 15, to all those hoo failed maths, that makes me 14!), I like collecting models, well cars mainly, and now i think i have enough model cars (they take up quite a bit of room aswell being 1/18th scale).
For christmans last year (2001) i got a unicycle model. It was actually from holland (my mum and dad went there hand brought it back. I then bought a giraffe (the uni, not the animal) model from a guy called Mike Dyson, who stocks bike models.
There both look really good. I was wondering if anyone know if you can get unicycles models from anywhere?
Ive seen the ones on unicycle.com, and there quite good.
Any info about models would be kool.
Thanks (in advance)
Every once in a while someone on ebay puts up these die-cast unicycle models in black or red. I don’t know if they’re any good, and I don’t think there’s any available right now anyway. So I suppose this wasn’t much help!
They’re great. I had a pair of them on my wedding cake. One wore a bowtie, and the other had a veil. Got to scan one of those pictures sometime…
The hard part was getting them to stand up. They come with stands, but we needed something more substantial. I think they ended up being hot-glued to the stands, and then attached to a base to make them more stable.
Those little unis have working pedals, so if you were small and light enough you could actually ride them. Keep an eye on eBay to find some…
