      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    looks great - yellow and black is always a good contrast! personally i would have lowered the stance a little, at least the front. and maybe a bit wider wheel track.

    i like it a lot!
    your reference car has the wide body kit painted in body color, but i think using semi-gloss black or carbon fibre decals would rock even more.
    here's a sample of what i mean:

    would be interesting to know, how much you changed the transmission ratio. normally, with a smaller front sprocket, the car would go slower. so a bigger rear sprocket would be needed. for a car that is supposed to break the landspeed record, this is a very important issue!

    you have a cool photo shooting location down there in southern france!

    i like your approach - not oob but make the maximum from nothing. i personally would have also modified the stock exhaust into lake pipes or bellflower tips using pieces from the kit's molding frames.

    use prototyping, as we IT-guys do. with this i mean to add some rivets to a spare part and then compare your result with the molded rivets. you should see then which one you like better.

    amazing to see on your pics that the drivers legs were the first thing behind the front wing. in these days when you hit another car or the railguards your legs were gone ....

    Spirit of The Seventies
    onother model that already appeared on escale.
    i found this kit, partly started (just glued the fork, no paint):

     
    i haven't made a scrambler so far, the model is already vintage (because the Z1 is a bike from the 70s), so i soon found where i want to end up with this build:

     
    did not look to dramatic to transfer the Z1 into this retro scrambler, except 2 minor issues: cylinder #1 and #4. the Z1 is an inline-four, whilst a scrambler is a single cylinder or a parallel twin (like this one). i thought this will be a challenge for me, which could result in a failure. but it turned out to be a simple job, just a little planning where to cut and very soon the block, the crankcase, the head and the valve-cover where shortened.
    to achieve a slim bike i also narrowned the tank, the seat and the engine covers. exhaust was scratch built, also the engine protector. the other parts where modified according to the photo reference.
    this pic shows the first mock up:

     
    unfortunately the stance was the one of a chopper and not of a offroad bike (although i already extended the length of the rear shocks). after shortening the forks and building 3 further sets of shocks i was happy:

     
    and here is the final result:

    i had the same issue to fit the 911 engine into my fiat 500 body and i also eliminated the clutch in order to fit the drive shafts in a proper angle.
