Normally I can take or leave cycle builds but this one is just NUTS...and bolts, screws and pretty much everything! You've done this one proud, what a kit!

Was looking forward to how your carving would turn out.

Did some work on the engine, its been dropped this side, should I give the other side the same treatment or is that going to far, mine was only dropped on one side but I am sure they have been both sides.
















I deleted your oversize pictures. Please be more careful with youur posting in the future.

The large one looks really good, especially the rear shot looking at the exhaust and massive number plate.

The rusting on your new one looks good, like its going to fall to pieces in the very near future

What did you do to the airbox to give it that sun faded look?

Hi Steve I've used this method a lot first a liberaly coat the area I'm fading with white spirit (the dirty stuff I clean my brushes in ( I find it gives a more dirty varied look)) then I stipple the part with Mig abt 180 copper oxide, then I wash my dirty white spirit over it till it runs over the part, I keep washing it with white spirit like this til I get the effect is want, once dry if you want more of the plastic colour to show through its easy to rub areas off to get what you want, then just varnish. Ps I don't prime if I'm wanting faded plastic look as of course you are already working with plastic and no primer I know looks more realistic than the actual stuff.

Hi all here is todays little bit.
I decided to do an experiment I've stuck a bit of foil on the tank and I'm hoping that when ive put the top coat on when I scratch through it it will look like the metal of the tank showing through.


also I'm trying to show the buleing effect on a chrome exhaust
