Scale I Build

  1. I have been interested in turning a Maisto knucklehead into a bobber for some time. Having 2, as well as 2 Danbury Mint examples, I decided to try disassembling one in order to rebuild it. Yes, like all of us, I need another project like a hole in the head...... I had thought of this in conjunction with my truck, boat, and trailer project- maybe in the back of the Power Wagon. I have included a couple photos of what I might be going for, as well as actual disassembly photos. Although called a diecast, the only diecast pieces were the tank and engine. With the exception of a few pins everything else is plastic. Most of the plastic seems to be a fairly soft and flexible plastic more like vinyl than styrene. The light and horn, shifter, and one or 2 other parts do seem to be styrene. The engine has the air cleaner molded directly into the cylinders- no carb at all, and I will probably grind it off and file in the cylinder ribs- or make a mold and use the resin casting for the rework. There is a lot of parting line, as well as gouged areas from too aggressive sprue removal at the factory, plus parts like the shifter linkage are much to heavy. This is what my father-in-law would call a 20 footer- looks pretty good from a distance, but up close you see things. The disassembly itself went pretty well- took about an hour- biggest chore was removing the axle and steering pins- enough slack and flexibility to get side cutters in and snip them. After looking things over, there will be quite a bit of scratch building involved. I had planned on a new shifter, plus brake, oil, and fuel lines, and plug wires, but I think more will be happening. Just discovered I am having a file issue -things are coming in as jfif instead of jpeg- so only one disassembly photo- will try and add more when things are working right again.
  2. Nice museum right off the Columbia River in Eastern Oregon. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Airplanes/2014-07-29-Western-Antique/i-pgFdp9t Yeah, got one to upload. Guess I pushed my luck. Anyway there's the link above,
  3. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/2016-03-20-32nd-Antique-Classic-Motorcycle-Show/i-gChkzrQ Wasn't sure were to put this (you in the back, be quiet) so guess this is as good a place as any. Not liking some to load. There's the file link above.
  4. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2012-02-04-Motoring-Through/ Guess I'll post a show with some of my type of cars. Wouldn't post the show I wanted to guess the photos are too big. Is the limit around 3mb on size? Oh well, this is always a good show with lots of stuff I like.
  5. Happy Holidays ,,just finished a 1/8 1995 Revell snap kit that I got @ swap meet. It turned out ok for a snap kit,,it actually has some decent detail molded into it. I didnt have the decals,,so I just put a TA wing badge on tank,,it looks kindof like a Harley badge. Also scratch built a sissy bar for back seat. Thank for looking
