    Finally, a cheap purchase through ebay. It came complete with everything attached
    and broke down easily. My problem will be paint. I ruined a decent paint job. Krylon
    primer, color and clear aren't working for me. It's been crazing and crackling. I've put
    this silver base down, maybe there's a Testors translucent color I can use.

    a couple of weeks.

    Want to avoid crazing? Don’t mix paints. Use the same brand/type of paint for color and clear. Use model spray paints or automotive paints. If the spray can has a picture of patio furniture on it, it’s not the best for models. Don’t waste your time with krylon or rustoleum. Save those for yard projects. I’m sure someone will tell a story about how great those brands are for models, but the proof is in the pudding. [​IMG]

    Gunze Sangyos 1/12 Indian Sport Scout. A demanding kit in more than one way but the result was ok I guess:

    Finished! I know it’s early but I’m so excited. This AMT 33 Willy’s sports a hilborn hemi instead of the kit’s ford engine. I made a custom cradle with speed holes for the engine. I changed the stance and wheels too. It’s pearled, laced, and flaked with a ton of chrome. I also added yellow windows and wired it up. My goal was to make it look like a gasser/show car.

    Oh,forgot to mention that both kits were a pain in the ass to build,fitment was some kind of headache.So just a heads up if you plan on building them in the future.I have an uptop from the Modelhaus for the Chevy but just wasn't going to work,would not butt against the top of the windshield frame like it was made to do most likely it was the body and not the Modelhaus piece.

    Thanks for looking and Happy Modeling everybody !

  14. I never built a model bike, but I think that Indian Sport Scout came out REALLY nice! Nice work.

    Heres another one. As the previous orange 32 posted, this is also inspired by the great art of Chris Froggett: A resin body of a heavily chopped 34 was the base for this build:

    The Modelhaus uptop would be for the original '62 Chevy annual, not for the new tool '62 Chevy convertible. Most of their stuff would have been for original kits, not newly-designed kits.

    I went to the Milwaukee NNL Saturday with my 1941 Willys Street Demon and got a pleasant surprise from a magazine company. That made my day. [​IMG]
