      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

    I agree with all. Especially think you have just the right amount of weathering! Very realistic!
  2. Not so new Member

    Since you've been around here a lot longer than I, seems silly to say welcome so I'll just say Hi, glad to meet ya!
  3. Hello from upstate NY

    Welcome Dan, seems to be a lot of us getting back into it.

    To be honest I don't remember, it's been over four years since I left Reno. Thanks Pappy, I will be posting more.

    I hope motorcycles are legal here. I'm replicating (well trying too) my friends Road King: Got the easy part done (engine/tranny) I have a little more trouble with the small parts! I have the base silver on, tomorrow I plan to shoot the blue.
  6. Getting back into the hobby after 20 years. I'm amazed at all the detailing stuff available these days I would like to try my hand at some scratch building and weathering. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for y'all. I've started using an airbrush and trying to get the hang of Alclad Chrome (I do pretty well with the aluminum). Just curious, are there any other motorcycle modelers on the forums. Here is a picture of one of the my last builds It is the Thunderbird Davey Allison drove in the early '90s
  7. The first car - A foray into manhood.

    My first was a '48 Merc coupe, traded it for a '40 Desoto sedan. My favorites were a '55 Buick Century, I recently bought a Maisto Die Cast CHP replica that I want to try revamping. A LOT of mischief in that car! The first car I actually bought on my own was a '69 El Camino I just bought the AMT '68 El Camino on ebay. Speaking of firsts - my first bike was a '48 Indian. Good luck with the Golf, Tomo! I had a Rabbit once upon a time, Not one of my favorites.
  8. I'm working on a couple of Aoshima motorcycles. They are highly detailed, very little flash and minimal mold lines. Not the easiest to build (but then I'm old & on medication). On a side note, nowhere does it say Harley - Davidson. The decals say something like "Hardway Dady&Son"
