I apologize for my tardiness. Just got into the new house and am unpacking.

Post your pics here for the motorcycle CB. Any motorcycle, two or three wheeled.

so my entry

Revell 1/12th scale Harley FLH-80 Electra Glide

old kit from the early 80s, not sure if the decals are going to hold up, comes with a little pit bike so might throw that together too just for a laugh

not sure yet what the colour will be, since its a Glide blue might be an idea lol, but it will probably be red

i did try starting this a few years ago, didnt like the colour i used on the tank, fairing, etc and put it back in the box.........ive stripped it back and plan another go

This is what I'll start on.  Hopefully I'll find time away from the ship.

Both of those are great kits. Looking forward to watching them both get built. Hopefully I can finish getting settled and figure out where to build before the end of June. lol

Any progress guys?

just to show i am doing stuff lol

im at that stage where im sorting out all the bits and painting them prior to assembly

the body work has had a couple of coats of vallejo scarlet red topped with some gloss



put the frame together tonight....one of those jobs where you need 3 hands to hold it all together



been tinkering with the little pit bike........gave it a coat of metallic purple.....just the grips and the screen to add, then some decals....thinking of going thro the decal stash for some race numbers and logos to tart it up

finally a splash of colour.............rear guard on, primary on, oil bag and battery on

ive made one little mistake, tried to give the primary cover a wash to pick it out but it dosnt seem to have taken as well as i would have liked, might try to remove it, but ive got to be very gentle, cant use anything too aggressive as the cover is something i rechromed

starting to come together

got to say that this is the hardest bike kit ive ever done.......its such an old kit and its starting to show......im not looking forward to the wiring as the tubing has gone a bit brittle, if i havnt got something in the spares box to replace it im going to try hot water to soften it up
