I like the way it's coming along.

It's coming along really well. I found this interesting video on YouTube about Heavy Metal:
Remember, nobody messes with Harry Canyon.

That is way cool! Nobody messes with Harry Canyon. "Pretty but dumb. I put it off as a three day ride with one hell of a tip". I don't recall the exact wording. Don't forget the little red button down near the pedals where he gets rid of unwanted passengers. "Take me to the UN building", Yeah, they turned it into low rent housing".

Takin' a ride on Heavy Metal! Cool project! I love that movie.

Here's the box art.
That chassis/engine is done.
I painted the body in red despite the fact that it is molded in red too.

I just did a little search on YouTube and found J-Men Forever (I have it on DVD). If you've never seen it before you might get a good laugh out of it. And you will see that scene you made being used in it. But it has a different soundtrack. It's clips from those old Republic serials pieced together with a new soundtrack making a new story.
Cool build. He's fighting an enraged water heater. That scene was used in a Firesign Theater video called J-Men Forever.

It was an '89 Merkur Scorpio. My Dad and I each had one. My car had a bad alignment, my Dad had transmission problems.

Looks pretty good. I once did something like that in the mid 90's. I used the chrome side of the alum. foil that Nestles Crunch bars were wrapped in back then to make chrome on a model car. It worked pretty well.

Well, finally here's some more progress. I had some issues preventing me from doing much model work over the past few months. I got a really nasty cold in late Nov. that lasted through into Jan. Then after that was over I did a little work. Then out of nowhere I had three weeks of insomnia and I'm finally over that. But just as I was getting over that a few weeks ago I caught another cold. But this cold was much milder and I was almost over it in a week. So I finally got back to working on the exhaust system, painting the heat staining, adding those tiny wire loops for the springs. Then I ordered the Top Studio springs. I found one vendor that had them. So I got them in a week. A bag of 20 so that will do a few bikes. I used eighth on this one. Plus it was quite challenging mounting the tunes pipes with the Scale Motorsports PE brackets. But I got them. The springs were the last thing installed just today and yesterday. So now here's a bunch of photos going aroinf the bike and some close up shots on the exhaust system. I hope you like it.

Fantastic build. It almost looks like I'm looking at the 1:1 car.
Great weathering job.
Looks really nice. I have one of those kits waiting to be built.
That a really cool build.
