8) very cool in deed NICE WORK !


as for your (NO LONGER TOUCHING) spokes ! It might be too late but you could use a little white glue and a little water to dilute just a tad and with a small toothpick ! bring a small drop and touch the spoke and lead it to the rim....

Not saying it will solve all your problems... but it could bridge the Gap !!!

if too late. ? just don't sweat it !


You did a great job ! and those spokes are much better than what we usually see on 1/35 scale Motorcycle !

keep up the good work !

Thanks myke & spud, Norm I think its a little to late, but thanks for the advice...I may still give it a go. Its a present for my mum soooo I dont have to look at it lol!! :p
Got the base done. I'm still waiting for a wooden base to be made that will allow this to be 'sunk' so the pavement will run flush with the wood.


This is the first base that I have made, first off I primered with humbrol acrylic primer from the can. Then a cot of xf-66 light grey went on, hilighted with xf-19 sky grey, washes and drybrushing and some grass from gale force was added. Let me know what you think. :)

Looks fantastic. Did you preshade the recesses at all or is that from the washes?

Thanks Myke :D No preshading, just as you say washes/AK Interactive streaking grime in the puddle & a little AK Black pigments.

Don't sweat it about the spokes..... the white glue (lightly diluted) would dry Clear anyway.... and you would have to touch the BRIDGE with a tinny amount of paint....

but please don't experiment on my account ! You are doing really go on that one and the Base looks Awesome to !

Just a different thought. How about turning the grass in the gutter into some trash or debris? Maybe add a few leaves, sticks, bits of newspaper, and some wash/rain/grime marks along the step between the sidewalk and the road? Just a thought.

Very nice build! And the rider's paint job really gives it a little personality too!
