    Really nice build. I built one of those as a beater car.
  2. I used to live on L.I., NY. That's where I'm originally from. I left in '92 when I could no longer find a job there any more. I don't miss it one bit any more either. One thing I remember about it. Any kind of activity that's fun isn't allowed there. They're all lawsuit crazy there. I was a member of a club (in the 80's) that raced 1/8 scale nitro RC cars. It was hard to find a parking lot to get permission to use. We did wind up using Nassau Community College. An outdoor activity I do now is mountain biking. I'm sure there's no place on L.I. that would be any good for that either.
  3. Awesome build. At first I thought I was looking at the 1:1 bike until I saw a photo with your hand in it.
  4. I think we're all kicking the Bucket and moving on to other free photo hosting sites. In time I will eventually delete mt PB account. What PB also did was make it so no one can look at PB. You can view the thumbnails but when you click on a photo it gives you that same 3rd party message. I used it to show my picture to a friend from work. When he clicked on a photo that's what happened.

    Looks great. Loos as good as a Tamiya kit.
  6. Here's a little more work. I painted the fairings. The paint is just Testors guards red with alum. metallizer. _________________ Too many models to build in a lifetime.
  7. Here's a little more I have done. The engine is in the frame now.
  8. I have found some new free photo hosting sites to use. No more Photobucket for me. I kicked the bucket.

    Very nicely done!
  10. Nice pens. Do people still know how to write? They don't teach cursive any more. How do they sign their names?
  11. Nice build. I used to see those a lot when I was in H.S.
  12. Very nice build! You can't go wrong with Tamiya kits.
  13. You should see the store too. I was in it once. Plus they set up a vendor's table at the local contests where I live.
  14. Looks like you did a really great job reproducing that picture.
  15. Well, this one is a real challenge. I am going to super detail it like I have never done before on any other model. I have the Scale Motorsports CF decals, the Top Studio super-kit and the chain kit (yeah, build this chain one link at a time, about $40 too. I bought an already built chain for my mountain bike for $20). I also have the brass fork kit from Tamiya. I had the super-kit for a good few years, in fact I had it for three years before I bought the bike kit. I had bought it for another bike kit not realizing it wasn't the correct kit number to go with it. Then when I decided to finally build it I had to order the chain kit, I had thought it was part of the super-kit which it wasn't. I got it from Japan in 8 days. The fork kit was discontinued, but I found it on Amazon for $15 from some Japanese company that seems to sell just toys. That took almost 2 weeks. I also added Pro Tech braided oil line with hex AN fittings. So here are mostly engine pictures and a some frame shots.Box art" All the stuff going into the kit: Engine shots: The frame:
  16. Look really good. When you "restore" it, it can look like this:
  17. Looks really nice, the interior looks real good too.
  18. Nicely built. We don't have theme here in the USA but I do know about them from the model kits. I've seen them on TV too.
