Very cool and nice improves your Norton Manx
Revell/Italerie or the Original Protar?
The spoke wheel looks like homemade, very nicely done.

What wire diameter did you take?

hi guys...still cannot get my other bikes on yet...trouble with my computor:/

still, the Norton is indeed Protar with some detailing & the wire wheel spokes are 0.6mm stainless steel bridal pins. I made them using a jig which was MDF & plastic card.

general clean up of the links with scribing & connecting rods of brass, stainless steel & some home made rear shocks.

Chain was detailed by grinding out between links with a dental burr & washed over with black over a gun metal base coat.

Thanks for the comments...;)

Hi Mark
The Yamaha looks very good.

The wire spokes / rims and the homemade feathers are great again!
Is this Aoshima's 1:12 SR400?
