Finished my Revell Chopper!
Posted 27 November 2006 - 02:58 AM
I had a lot of fun building this kit, and I've purchased several 1/12 motorcycle kits. My next 1/12 bike build will probably be a more "traditional" bobber made from an Imex FLH or hardtail. Thanks for looking!

By the way, young feller, if you've ever ridden a hardtail chopper (I did, many years ago) you would know that you have to have springs on that seat.

Dave - I should have mentioned that your vast "Tamiya Spoon Painting Tests" are what gave me the idea to do the Met. Red over Lt. Gunmetal. So, thanks for that!
khart - the carb & stack are from the AMT '25 T-Rod kit. I sanded some detail off the carb edges and installed it.
Lyle - my next hardtail will have springs. I did seem to recall seeing a 1:1 with a seat mount like this, and Papafo's post confirms it. So, while uncomfortable, at least it's not unrealistic. 8)
Papafo - what forks can we be expecting in resin? Sounds good!
