      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

    I agree with all. Especially think you have just the right amount of weathering! Very realistic!

    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!

    To be honest I don't remember, it's been over four years since I left Reno.

    Thanks Pappy, I will be posting more.

    Aoshima Road King
    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.

    Another returning builder!
    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

    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.
  9. RonO added a post in a topic Are tamiya models and other foreign models good?   

    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"
