Migmaker, nice choice! A 1:1 lightcycle!

So, aside from the ambitious project, did you make the fiberglass pieces or is it a kit? What type of motorcycle do you plan to use as the "guts" of the thing?

I like this design better than the Tron:Legacy designs; could have something to do with wanting to drive one after the original Tron came out!

Press on, User!

It is a scratchbuild, using cnc'd foam masters made from my autocad drawings and resulting 3d model, with modifications to allow for a person to actually fit inside. Other than that, its film accurate 😆.  I'm working with Thrustcycles to make it a shell for a gyroscopically balanced cycle/scooter,  so drivable if all goes well....as for paint finish, i plan to use Lumilor to light the entire cycle, just like the film, it's an ambitious project for sure 😁

This is the 4'x8' panels right?

Where did you get the CNC work done?  The bigger question...  how much is CNC service? ;)
