Hello

Anyone know if its possible to get scooters in 1:6 scale? I believe they have done a LX for Barbie?

I've seen plenty of 1:12 scale models but not a lot of 1:6. My youngest daughter has the Barbie ET4-it's pretty realistic.

Here's a 1:6 scale from Scooterworks in Chicago:

None. Maybe again someday when Michelle won't worry.

I wanna say I've seen rather large models on e-bay.....nice looking ones too. They were of vintage scoots. Might check there.

I refuse to answer that on the grounds that it may incriminate me...

Yes well taking the fifth amendment does sort of incriminate you. Especially when you live in a country with no written constituion and a history of spoiling perfectly good scooters with heaps of mirrors.

I've got 2 1:12 units from the local VESPA dealer, but haven't heard of any 1:6 models out there - at least on this side of the pond.

That's not me. It is an eBay photo one the one like mine. Tim posted links above, and Max's price is about what I paid on eBay for mine.

I purchased one a while back..Its really nice, the only thing I didn't like about it is that the handle bar is made out of plastic so it flexes..Wish that it was made out of something elses. Everything elses is ok. For the price, it can't be beat.
