Here you can see a project that I started 4 years ago as a group building.
Whereby my construction is furthest advanced.
But now I want to finish building and share it with you.
The fork has a part scratch built of stainless steel tubes.
The rim was spoked.

What you see is the "Red Porsche Killer"

Thanks Mate .
So little update.

The rear Brembo is completely Scratch incl the Allen.
Carburetors were slightly improved, Revell represents the extremely
rudimentary .
The carburetor trumpet is turned.
And the manifolds are all in place.
Until next time

Wow!!!! This looks pretty cool! How much of it is scratch made and how much is with the use of kit parts from various kits?

 

Superb workmanship!

Thanks Imster .
But not that we misunderstand each other.

There are only parts made scratch, not the whole kit.
Existing parts are improved.
The kit comes from Revell, is from 2001 and was probably sold only in Germany.

I'll show you some pictures of the assembly
Turned Parts

So here's the finished painted fork, the holes for the hollow axles are quite large (now 2.5 mm)
Revell does not take any risk of mismatching, with according play.
Play free only if you tighten the screws nice and tight.
The tubes for the hollow axles are already on the way, I hope that works as well as I imagine.
I want to do the same with the steering head.

Thank you mates 😀
Today I have dedicated my little milling machine, is more a drill stand than a milling machine but it is enough.

For the part, Original Revell.
Tried to mill the 12 Kant, I think there are usually 14 edges, 12 are better to split, I'm quite satisfied for the first time.

Carburetor all in place and wiring carburetor .... almost done.
At the seat I still have to mill out and reline on the frame surface, otherwise it is not enough with the carburettor.
See arrow

Oh my god this is very sad to see happen, is it very noticeable and needs to be repaired? If so I think it would mean taking it all apart to fill and repaint etc?

I hate when things like this happens when you nearly completed a project i have a couple of builds that are on the naughty shelf because of things like this!

Thank you for your encouragement .
Well, then again from the beginning.
By removing the paint, the plastic has now become brittle.
I now had to glue the frame in several places.
And my welds have failed .
Blessing in disguise.
The heat did not melt the frame.

On the weekends comes the clearcoat .
