Here's one I finished today - the AMT Ice Cycle.  Not much to the kit, but what a fun build!  I used HOK white with some magic sprinkles in the first clear coat and then some kandy apple red for highlights.

Cool build on a "strange" kit. Did you make the hinge ?

Thank you, Ray.  Yup.  Make the hinge from brass wire and Evergreen tubing.  I was thing of trying to pull some cotton real thin so when the cover is open the cotton would flow out like condensation on a warm day.  Maybe I'm just crazy, though.

Thank you, fellas.  I got this thing in a trade.  I had never seen it before but figured what the heck.  I had issues trying to get the roof in place but eventually figured it out.  The wheels were the a major pain.

Thanks, Tony.  You're right.  It was a tension relieving build.

Jim ,  I just dug my kit out of storage to look at it and I was kind of surprised ,  it's big ! 

The box says 1/25th scale but it looks closer to 1/16th scale .

The box I had, or the instructions, said it's 1/12 scale.  I have the extra bicycle w/sidecar on the bench getting a bunch of Revel 1/12 scale chopper parts.  It's going to be wild.

That's interesting ,  I must have a newer reissue as it definitely says 1/25th on the box .

 You've got me curious now , I can't wait to see what you do with the bicycle !

The "bicycle" is on the bench.  So far I widened the seat portion so a tire will fit underneath, casted a Revell Harley engine for it, and now I'm making a tube frame to set the HD engine in.  I'll probably use a HD Sportster type gas tank.
