Part of a group build on another site.

This is the kit:



And this is what you get inside, twice over:



When finished, it will form part of my Mile End Garage dio. The other bike, will most likely be built in semi stripped down form, also for the dio.

That looks cool !!!
Photo etched spokes in that scale !! Wow. That's something that larger scales could/should incorporate ! Looking forward to these little gems in the Mile End Garage.

Thanks guys!

Wow..... I'm beginning to think I have bitten off more than I can chew!!  Checkt out the TEN parts just for the twin cylinders. Even with my modeling specs, I can barely make out the finning!!!

Goodness knows how I'm going to clean up the attatchment points let alone assemble it!!!

If I sneeze, I'll lose all of them!!! LOL





Half a cylinder!!!!

Thanks guys.

When I first cut those half cylinders off the sprue, I really wasn't looking forward to this build at all but now that I am into it, I am really relishing the challenge of working with such small parts.

The basic engine and crankcase are assembled. As when working with tanks, I'm finding some assembly is desirable before finaly cleanup of such tiny parts.

The engine and crankcase form part of the frame, so at this point, the frame is not yet glued to them. I THINK I can assemble at least most of the frame without glueing in the engine assembly, in order that frame and engine can be painted independently. At least that's the theory.





The rear forks:





The atatchment points on most parts are way to thick and way to many IMO, resulting in this!!! And this is the second one, so no more to fall back on!!!!

chop the bars out, drill the yolk top and grips and make bars out of wire.......... Sturdy result.

Nice work on getting the diddy bits together Al.

When its time to assemble the second set of twin cylinders, have a couple of beers and then film yourself trying to put it together. Upload it on youtube and show us. Nice work so far Al!

Thanks Buck.

This thing is driving me nuts at the moment. At this stage, because the parts contact areas are so small, I'm having to glue one part and then wait twenty four hours to glue the next, in order to make sure it ain't going to fall apart.

Rear end on, stock on and now waiting on the top joint on the front forks to dry!!!

It's looking mighty good for such a right royal pain Al.

I think you're doing the right thing with the drying time so it does't fall apart on you.... i'll bet we've all been there !!!!

Don't ya just love the smaller scales, Al? Hang in there - have fun.

Years ago, at a show in Chicago, there was a guy who put detailed motors in his 1/43 scale Rio builds. I was impressed and inspired.

For the size of it Al your doing a grand job!

Wondering how your going to paint it when its built.. A single strand of leg hair for a paint brush perhaps?

Painting? Nobody told me I had to paint it!!!

My intention originaly, was to remove the engine from the frame for painting. However, for security, I decided to glue them both together for better rigidity while building.

Just going to spray the Khaki Drab on the frame and engine, then detail the engine with a brush. In other words, I'm going to wing it!!! LOL

Going to wire the plugs first though!!!!!!!!!
