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.

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.

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.
