The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a game that encourages creativity throughout its design, so it only makes sense that it would inspire such activity in real life as well. In this new video from the Youtube channel “Qin Sang and Yao Jiang” (a hobby modelist channel that has built some really impressive Gundams), the simple hoverbike design from Tears of the Kingdom – two fans and a steering wheel – is recreated in stunning detail.



Individual components of the bike are 3D printed and meticulously removed, sanded, airbrush, and combined. This includes the fan blades, making the fans theoretically functional (if you had some zonai power irl). But the best detail has to be the simple tack to stick together the completed components. Lore accurate!

Be sure to check out the channel’s other videos for more hobby model craftsmanship.
