Thx. Guys your to kind. Well it rained all day today so i decided to knock out the ISP head pads. I used some thin styrene to make the backs and some 1/8" craft foam ( Thx. Clay) made the brackets out of styrene also and used brass hardware, I left the brass natural for some color contrast and added slixx decals.

Thx. Chris, The Ted's modeling hardline comes rolled up. For long straight runs you will have to work it to get it straight. I think it will be hard to get it perfectly straight, but still great stuff to work with. I made the fire bottle handles tonight and added the lines, I used small pieces of styrene for the handles and painted them red. I hope to finish the bottle brackets tomorrow after work, Then the back half of the fire system will be done and i can move on to the pedals.
