      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 thought the OP's modifications might work just fine, especially as a model.  Made me think it could be a Lincoln or upscale version based on much of the same mechanicals.
    If there were a "Like" button I'd have used it a few times in this thread.  And I'd probably still made the above comment...

    I almost added a couple words to the rear...

    It is 100% out-of-the-box and it has an engine. 
    Accurate?  No.  But not too visible once installed either.  Best I can tell is it is a mash up of a small block and a 409, even though the graphics say 396 suggesting a big block.
    I know the person it is for will enjoy it and I had fun building it as a simple diversion from other projects.

    Just a quickie that will be given away as a present.  A lot more fun than I expected, but then I also put more work into it than will ever be seen.  Good slump-buster kit, even if you’re not in a slump…

    Hi Paul, long time.  Great to see you here!
  6. Scale-Master added a post in a topic Bimota Tesi 1D (Ducati 906)   

    Turns out my earlier concerns about the seat material were warranted as it was just powder on the carrier paper, so I had to paint the seat areas.
    All done now…

    If you compensate me for my time and materials I can make more of them.

    Now that the touch up and decaling is done I can move on to the final assembling of it.
    I painted the seat areas black in case the material doesn’t fit 100%.

    This is the “bad” side that took most of the effort to touch up.  Certainly not perfect, but way better than it was, and acceptable for this project.

    Thanks.  Those were made as individual units, to make more would be the same drawn out process.  Those spanned a month to make and took several days of work between the machining, fabrication and artwork.

    Finally got the chrome trim done and waxed the body.

    Thanks Chris, when I drive this one sometimes I feel like I'm back in that time too.  In fact I'm just about to take a time trip in it after I post this...
     
    I finally got around to polishing some of the body parts.  First I sanded the hood stripes smooth then hit it with some Tamiya wax.

  13. Scale-Master added a post in a topic Bimota Tesi 1D (Ducati 906)   

    That Suzuki is a nice kit, but requires a little more effort than this one and the newer kits.
     
     
    I mixed Italian Red with Cream to try to match the color of the decals and airbrushed the bulk of the red areas.  I hand painted the edges since I could not mask on the decals.   Not perfect, but better.  I still have to add the Bimota decals and then clear it. 

  14. Scale-Master added a post in a topic Bimota Tesi 1D (Ducati 906)   

    Upon further inspection of the decals and instructions, my concerns about the ghosting of the decals through the Bimota lettering probably won’t be an issue because the kit provides extra lettering decals in white.  Unfortunately where the red panels overlap on the tank darker colored blocks are created.
