"Satte Liter Schüssel", translated the "Rich-liter bowl", proves that the boundaries between comics and reality, been able to get into flow.
The crazy thing is, that there already was a model kit from Revell, even before the first stroke of the real "Bowl" announced its existence with a thunderous roar, there is actually a real, mobile "motorcycle".
A short excerpt from the comic film
The technique of the real "Bowl":
Engine: air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke, engine capacity 1440 ccm, Bore x Stroke 116 x 136 mm, capacity about 50 hp, double overhead camshafts, four valves, compression 8:1, battery ignition, Volvo SU carburettor with manual injection, dry sump lubrication, Harley - Panhead-gearbox and primary drive.
Suspension: steel frame of 1 ¼ inch seamless precision steel, brassed, a rigid rear, load bearing engine, parallelogram fork, Harley-drum brakes, tires 4.75/5.00-19 original Ford Model A.
Special Features: coal shovel seat with leaf spring , gasoline and oil lines made of copper, food stocked from beerbrewing, iron rims of Massey-Fergusson tractor, not tapered two-pipe exhaust system, 3.5-Liter fuel tank and handlebar, hammered by hand, fork legs of wood with steel core, optically like a drawbridge with torture fittings.
The Revell model is 1/9 and consists only about 58 parts, injection molded in a brownish-red, silver and brass-colored plastic.
In addition there are a few screws, a black hose and a metal spring for the front fork.
I've replaced the hose, because those from the kit, are unfortunately, made of soft plastic and not of rubber (in some places too hard).
The fit of the kit parts, can be described as just as "somewhat".
A very strong form displacement, and numerous cast burrs, is not exactly a erupt in cheers, especially since this kit would probably appeal to the younger clientele...
Not exactly a snaptite model, but this direction (although not exactly a bargain).
The distribution of components, sometimes it seems like quite absurd, since only a few components can be separately assembled, so you can assemble the main frame only if you already install the bracket for the front fork...
If you do not have to putty and sand in many places, that would be no problem, but so...
Revell, listen, a few more parts, have greatly facilitated the affair.
Not completely satisfied with the finish of some parts- still need to rework, but I hope, you enjoy it nevertheless.
