Hi all well as some light relief I'm going to build this, obviously me being me it will look nothing like the box art and will be built  as relief from my other builds as and when I feel the need for a break, so build progress will be sporadic, trust me though I don't think it will be recognised as what it is when finished.

Hi all well I've weathered the engine and swing arm, I'm quite pleased with it as I've not done desert weathering before, needs a bit more depth but I think it's a good starting place.

Why yes, yes I do, lol.

The weathering looks great and I am anticipating the 'mods' you've got planned

Looks great Ken, have you thought about 'scale tape' for the seat rip'?

Motivation

Wow, superb work! I like the look of it with the spiked fairing, very much something from the wastelands. The blanket rolls are beautifully done and the seat rip is fantastic. Simply gorgeous

Hi all well I've got the forks round the right way and added the foot pegs and a few other ancillary devices on the last leg now.
