1/12 Chopper update - paint is on

With only a few hours a week, it's a long slow process but I got the colors on the bike this past weekend. The red is Tamiya Metallic Red over their Light Gunmetal. The seat is still bare styrene, but I'm thinking Wimbledon White with Satin clear for that and the grips.

Thanks guys. Actually, the springer is from a 1/12 Imex Bad Boy. That's the out-of-box length. It's a little too long for the kit it comes with, but perfect for the choppers!

I have a Shaker Trike, and plan to use that springer fork on my Aces Wild build next.

Chop on...

Ken, I think you're right. Light tan with brown Sharpie "stitching" for a baseball glove look. Right on!
