Theoretically, I could do 1/87 versions (with or without riders) easily and quickly, just a matter of scaling the model down to, what 82% or so. However. Any smaller than 1/72 scale, though, and you're running into wall thickness problems. I tend to design to a minimum 1mm thickness, which leaves a tiny bit of manouevring room in SWF, which the dirtbikes are at. So, while it would be trivial to shrink them by 20% (1:87 is what, 20mm scale?), but there would be a lot of 0.82mm thicknesses, so I'm not confident it would print (and they might be a bit fragile even in SWF). And there's not a lot I can do to shrink the model and keep the wall thicknesses and it maintain any level of detail (the current version is fairly crude as it is.) If you're really interested and willing to take the risk on printing yourself, (or want to discuss this further) PM me (there should be a link on the Shipyards home page) and I can get something up for you to try whenever you next put an order in. (I say PM, since there's the chance it won't even make it past the Shapeways upload!)

What about making a set in 1/87 scale? I know many who would love to get these for their 1/87 scale collections. You could sell to the HO crowd with ease. Maybe do up a set with a couple without riders? I know myself, I'd get several sets in 1/87 scale, More so if some of them was just the Dirt Bikes without riders.
