This is looking awesome.
The same for all...110 weight. It's quite tough on some of these pieces and I suspect going to get tougher as I'm starting on the handle bars and tiny parts that go there and also the foot pegs and smaller details.
Alittle more progress...sooo many fiddly parts.
This is looking ready for the showroom floor!
Got the front end done...I don't ever want to do another one.
Great game of Sorry going on in the background. (That particular game has invaded and defeated my build time also)
I have so got to make me one of these. I want to make one of a bikes I own though, and that's going to make it harder. :curse:
Great job Closet Astronaut I,ve given up on this one 4 times.Parts too small fingers too fat.
Yea...I've had the same problem but the hardest part is done, I'm on to the wheels , the only fiddly bits left are the foot rests and shifter.
GOOD GRIEF....WHEELS AND TIRES! This is preciesly the reason I've avoided building vehicles. These things can make a fairly talented builder look like an amiture, however I believe it's all in the design. I plan to build one more wheeled vehicle and the wheel and tire design looks much more realistic and probably more builder friendly.
Did you see that puff of smoke? Did you hear the boom?
That was my mind being blown. Excellent work so far.
I've been watching gathering tips here and there for my own build of a different bike (Mike magillas (sp) Chopper)
Excellent work :thumb:
Dang she is looking good, love the rims. Keep up the good work.
good work, for me a little bit bigger, but with so many details it is great!
I was thinking of using liquid electrical tape to cover the wheels. Just before it hardens it gets a consistency and running the wheel once over fine sand paper would give it a road texture. Just an idea. The bike is so awesome, I have got to build me one of these.
I found filling it with tissue keeps them from going flat later down the road.Some times I hate gravity.They look well built good job.
Well gentlemen I'm glad all are enjoying the build, we're comming down the home stretch, and paper air...thanks for the tip, I have the front wheel to do so I'll deffinantly give it a try.
Wow Paul..the tissue thing worked excellent. Thanks for the tip.
Finally done. A long arduous build. The level of detail in this model is astounding. How this designer could unfold all the complex shapes and parts is unbelievable. An outstanding job of designing. Everything went together well, I didn't have any problems with parts fitting together, however I wouldn't recommend this to the faint of heart or the beginner.
