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 !
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!!
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.
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!
