    Mine average about a month,give or take a few days. I work on them in the AM,before going to work,,and then a couple hrs after work. Depends on how in-depth I want the kit to be. I bought a 1/6th large scale Tamiya Yamaha YZ250 MX bike,,and that one will probably take 2 months or more,,EXTREME amount of detail provided in that kit,,{cant wait to do that one!} So,,its up to you how much you want to do,,wire+plumb the motor?,,seatbelts? Roll bars? X-tra scratch built stuff adds time to it,,but has a more complete result. Enjoy yourself no matter how much time you spend,,thats whats most important IMO.

    Thanks ,,enjoy your works as well,,havent been on in a awhile ,,had to get new web service+ setup in different room@the house.made more room for building ect.Anyways,, I used just meijer ford blue paint,,didnt clear it. Kept it simple,it is a 1986 Monogram kit,,it was 1/2 built when I got it{orange paint},,but the hood already had the opening for a dual quad hi-rise setup,,and the injected setup fit quite well for it instead,,thanks for looking+ the feedback,,cheers!

    You may have to use different rims for the back than the front

    Thanks folks,,I posted this in the wrong section,,didnt know there was a section called "Big Boyz",,,its all good. Yes the rear tires look a little out of scale,,but in a good way,,lol. I sized up the dia of both front+back rims+tires from the trike model w/the rims from the stock kit,,and they werent too different,,its got a" Dave Deal" style rear wheel; setup,,oversized a bit. I also cut the front frame work by the radiator,,it used to have a "loop" that went in front of the Rad,,cut that out and squared it,,looks a bit cleaner. All in all,,Its one of my fav kits on the shelf. Enjoy you'alls stuff here also! Cheers!
