Thanks for the pics mark. So who made the black sportbike in the middle pic on the left? I love that bike. I could see that in the pickup bed of a couple projects i got.

I went by the local Hobby Lobby after work yestday and found that they did have a couple of the Maisto 1/24 scale harleys. I bought 2 diff ones at $6 each. Came home to check em out really good, the detail is pretty good and they are about the same exact size as the bike in the HD ford kit. They have alot of mold lines and need to be detailed a bit more. SO out came the pliers and tiny flathead screwdriver. These bikes are completely held together with small metal pins. Pull those out and everything comes off in layers and you can mix and match parts from other bikes. Im gonna clean em up, rechrome it, detail and repaint it to match what i need. Also looked on Ebay and theres a ton of 1/24 diecast bikes on there. In fact I ordered 2 sets of 6 diff bikes. So I should finally be able to piece together any combo of bike I need.

And I have that Lindberg 1/35 buick if anyone wants to trade for it.

Thanks. Yeah I meant to take some pics of the hood when I was building it. The viper hood is much longer than the magnum one. So i had to cut out the whole magnum hood so i only had 3 sides left and then start piecing in the viper sections. 1st the center scoop and intake was glued in, then i had to cut the vents off the side and slide them forward to get them to fit, if not they wouldve been up near the windshield. lots of gluing, putty and sanding later it looks pretty good. wasnt gonna have many body mods on this so i needed the hood and front grill to be point on.

HUmmmmmmm ? Good question. Im pretty sure i used the engine in the merc kit, but i changed the heads to use diff valve covers for the flamed parts. the air cleaner was a long oval 2 carb style so i found an old highrise manifold, glued 2 carbs on it, made a "filter" outta white plastic and glued on the photoetched cover. Found some small parts box headers and went with it. I didnt even plumb or wire the engine. Thats how low key this build was to me.
