The model of the Riverside and Great Northern Speeder is rather dear to me. I came into posession of some drawings of the protoype from its one time owner, Mike Decker and could not resist building a model. Neither could Carl Arendt and Steve Bennett and all 3 of us set about building one. My poweplant is a Tenshodo SPUD. This model is version 1.5 of the speeder .One year at the GATS show in Saint Paul it suffered a dreadful mishap and fell to the floor after being driven too fast around a corner. I gathered the pieces up and I eventually after a few years rebuilt her with some extra details to the form that you see her now. The model is predominantly styrene with the curved handrails bent up from brass strip.
