It's box stock except for the seat covering. It came with this fuzzy stuff that was just giving off its fibers and didn't look right anyway. I put on this leather like material. I like to show enough pictures for a "walk around". First shot is without the fairings: Notice my paint detail work on the chain. No PE, it's the plastic one in the kit. I also drilled out all the holes in the brake rotors.
Most recent build completed. Revell Crusader, 1/12 scale 'Amercan Chopper' style bike. Fun build, a few scratch parts like the HT leads and Brake lines, Paint is Humbrol 51, Sunset Red though over white primer it's more hot pink but I like, it, very hot rod and bright and noticeable.

I got it for a good deal at a show and started working on it. I was surprised at how much I liked doing it vs 1/24 and 1/25 cars, I think the larger pieces had something to do with it, or it was just a change of pace for me Didn't really know how to 'mod' too much on a bike as Im not all to familiar with them. I see soooooo much room for improvement, but I guess compared to the amount of completed cars vs ones started over my 'career' in models, starting a bike and getting it finished was kind of big for me
Hi everyone again, This project was all done in the scale of 1:12. After buying the bike model I've decided to build the structure around it to match the bike. This diorama was my first attempt to make this kind of art. Also this was a gift I have made for a good friend of mine, who owns the actual 1:1 scale bike. http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/20110619_014_900.jpg http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2827_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2828_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2839_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2865_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2885_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2886_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2887_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2889_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2895_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2882_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2845_900.JPG http://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3/122674/1599743/IMG_2829_900.JPG
