Should look very mean when complete


Cheers

this is looking as good as ,that,s a dingo,loving this so far,well,done :D


you going to try and find a Max,s in 1/6,to sand next to it,?


I wont to do  a Harley with Arnold Schwarzenegger,as the terminator,standing next to it,


I did see someone had done one at a model show,and was thinking that's my idea,looked great,


but finding a Arnold,in 1/12 is kind of hard, :tongue-out3:

great work Monica,


could you possibly put the instructions on line showing the bike in plan or side view or build up stages I have not yet ever built a scratch build of a bike but now may be the time.


thanks Barrie ( the old guy )

VERY Nice work ken. please don't encourage him every one his mad as it is HA! HA! But I must admit it does look real from some photos as a suggestion, ken get some grain off wheat lights an use the for the head light, brake light, indicators, and make the brake lever work and the indicators and head light that test your brain this will see if your mad scientist HA! HA! :P

Jim it won't have indicators and I'm considering removing the front light, also there is no rear light, you have to remember this is after an apocalypse, if you watch the mad max films (after the first on anyway) there are no lights at all on the bikes.

Hi all here is the next bit, done the front forks, can't decide whether to use the headlight fairing or not, if I do i will add more spikes to it, what do you think fairing or not

















Great work going into this one Ken, I think the light fairing on with spikes would look better than not on at all,
