Here's one I finished today - the AMT Ice Cycle. Not much to the kit, but what a fun build! I used HOK white with some magic sprinkles in the first clear coat and then some kandy apple red for highlights.

Cool build on a "strange" kit. Did you make the hinge ?

Thank you, Ray. Yup. Make the hinge from brass wire and Evergreen tubing. I was thing of trying to pull some cotton real thin so when the cover is open the cotton would flow out like condensation on a warm day. Maybe I'm just crazy, though.

Thank you, fellas. I got this thing in a trade. I had never seen it before but figured what the heck. I had issues trying to get the roof in place but eventually figured it out. The wheels were the a major pain.

Jim , I just dug my kit out of storage to look at it and I was kind of surprised , it's big !

The box says 1/25th scale but it looks closer to 1/16th scale .

The box I had, or the instructions, said it's 1/12 scale. I have the extra bicycle w/sidecar on the bench getting a bunch of Revel 1/12 scale chopper parts. It's going to be wild.

That's interesting , I must have a newer reissue as it definitely says 1/25th on the box .

You've got me curious now , I can't wait to see what you do with the bicycle !

The "bicycle" is on the bench. So far I widened the seat portion so a tire will fit underneath, casted a Revell Harley engine for it, and now I'm making a tube frame to set the HD engine in. I'll probably use a HD Sportster type gas tank.

That looks great. love the paint. I have the one that says 1/25 but I was guessing 1/18. Glad to finally know the correct scale.

Be back in a few, going after an ice cream bar, yummm.

i love this. the colors are bright and those little bells crack me up.as for the cotton condensation i did the same thing in reverse using cotton.instead of cold condensation i made smoke coming from a grill. i streched it thin and lightly painted it with some gray primer you could maybe paint it with a little flat white for your effect.here is what mine looks like. i guess we are both a little crazy.HEH.HEH.HEH.
