    Yes, and it's made of super glue.

  5. hobbybobby added a post in a topic Yamaha xs 1100   

    Well, to my knowledge, the Yamaha XS Eleven motorcycle, also called XS11 and XS1100, is a Japanese superbike produced from 1978 to 1981, powered by an air-cooled 1101.6cc 4-stroke, DOHC inline four-cylinder engine mounted transversely in a duplex cradle frame with swingarm rear suspension, shaft drive, and telescopic forks...

    But your beautiful build here, is the Yamaha Virago XV1100 and was one of several in the Virago line and was positioned as large-size cruiser with an engine displacement of 1,063 cc (64.9 cu in).

    It was unique in being one of the few cruiser-style motorcycles available with a shaft drive instead of a chain or belt final drive system, as well as a V-twin engine of that size and its heavily chromed body styling was also distinctive.

    As I said, beautiful build!

    In late 1980 when the GSX1100S Katana hit the street, it was claimed by Suzuki to be the fastest mass-production motorcycle in the world, ensuring the new looks were matched by unprecedented performance levels.

    So radical was the design departure from previous mass-market cycles, that most major motorcycle magazines of the era thought, the design would not appeal to the masses.

    Nevertheless it was a sales success, and the motorcycle had a lasting impact on motorcycle design, portions of the design ethos are still visible in many current sport motorcycles, including the faired-in aspects of both the seat and the tank.

    You've done a great job, i like it!

  11. hobbybobby added a post in a topic Bugatti EB110, Revell, 1/24 ***NEW PHOTOS ADDED***   

    So, when I see the result here, I can not believe that it really is the Revell kit, because I know this kit...

    ... I started to build it, but never finished, because he is terrible, my opinion.

    My hats off to you, you did it, it looks absolutely great!

    Weird Oh`s - Davey
    The popular Weird-Ohs® model kits - the classic 1960s multi-million selling phenomenon...

    Bill Campbell is another one of my favorite artists, he is behind the Hawk model companies 1960's Weird-Ohs series.

    He also did the box art for many WW2 planes, trains and cars witch proved him to be an all around great artist.

    The Weird-ohs series later spawned the Frantics, the Silly Surfers and an off-shoot line of plastic toys, Halloween masks and board games.

    The Hawk company has recently re-released the Weird-ohs, Frantics and Silly Surfers kits with the original box art.

    Davey - The Way Out Cyclist

    I have painted the bike with Tamya spray cans and the flames are temporary tattoos, front and rear light are Gemstones.

    The rest was painted first with mat black ( spray can ) and then by hand with Acrylic mat paints (FIN by WACO, great experience).

    These colors can be diluted with water or abrasion-proof.

    For the eyes, mouth, teeth, all shiny areas, I cover it with Enamel Paint No.1 by Revell.

    Davey`s hair is from the hood of a winter jacket, the small chains are real, but second-hand jewelry, the decals are also temporary tattoos, the tongue is a piece of polystyrene, carved, curved and the drool, is superglue.

    The base is an old picture frame filled with plaster.

    Well, this is my version, just finished today, hope you like it.
