|Hi crazy bike speeder fans !
WOT ? it aint finished yet ?
Tamiya have done a stella job, as you would expect, of designing their Harley kit.
So what's the problem ?
If you assemble the kit 'as intended', you get a pretty nice model.
The back wheel, mudguard, hub, chain & some of the frame; is ALL one part.
This looks surprisingly OK, & makes building the kit easy.
If you want to get rid of the rear wheel to make a bike speeder ... Problems !
Having stared at this lil' lot for a week; I think I'm going to finish the kit as intended.
So have been looking at other 1:35 bike kits, for speeder use.
Since I will have a Harley from this; I have looked at something else for the speeder.
This kit is more like Woodie's MiniArt kit.
The wheels & frame etc. are all seperate ( & very fiddley ! ).
Looks much more of a sensible route though; if you what a bike without wheels !!
Yes ... TWO full models !
Upside - I get a 'spare' Indian, NICE ... Downside - mucho dinero ( I'll eat rice next week ! )
So ... just thought I'd put all this nonsense up !
You never know; some other nutter might read this one day & make a crazy bike speeder !
P.S. Jose, I have my beady lil' eyes on another one of your railcar threads as well !
You gotta stop finding all these realy cool photos ... a guy just can't keep up !
