Thanks mate! The supplies turned up today ;D so this is what I got:
Resin & photo etch



And my road, which is a bit to big so this will probably be halved (kepping most of the pavement).

So should be constructing tonight :D

Thanks for the comments guys, got some paint on today. Starting with a black pre shade (very ruff), then a layer of olive drab then a custom lighter colour (olive drab & dark yellow). Got the exhaust rusted up (black then hull red then nato brown) and banged/dinged and wheels tires and saddle all painted up. This is really very small and I've already snapped of a part ::) its something I'm not used to, but I think stepping out of your comfort zone isn't a bad thing lol. Sorry again for the pics they hardly show off the colour on the exhaust etc but I just need the sun to shine and I'll be able to get some decent snaps.

Ok guys got the bike done. I'm pretty happy with it. But my butterfingers slipped on both wheels and some of the spokes are now not touching the rims, I can live with it and you cant see it person but its very frustrating :mad:..... anyway enough whining and excuses have a look for youreslves:


Weathered using dark washes, a little drybrushing and pigments. Now onto the base :)
