      G’day folks, I never thought I’d be putting anything in this section, the motorcycle department is my favorite. I’m here because I got a little bit “out of control”.

      Let me explain: While browsing at the hobby shop I spotted this tiny kit. Because all my builds take so long to finish I thought I’d just whip up a quick one over the weekend and put it in the “off topic” section as it’s only 1/35 scale. How wrong I was. 2 months later and I’m still not finished. Once I started the build the ideas started flowing, and what was meant to be just a little bike on the shelf became….. well, you’ll see.

      On the way to the hobby shop I stopped to check out a small gathering of custom cars, and there was this beautiful BMW/sidecar. When I saw the kit I thought ‘hey, I was just looking at the real one, I’ll build that!’

      This is where it all began:

    Just a small addition. I wanted to have it look more finished than it was so I could take it to our local scale model club meeting.
    I made a fish by rolling up a piece cooking foil and added fins cut from that coffee tin foil, then suspended it on a piece of the wire used for the fishing line. The temporary water is cut from the clear plastic liner that was in a new tool kit I recently purchased. I knew it would come in handy for something.

    Really, really great diorama. If I was a bachelor I would turn my coffee table into a diorama like that for a 1:8 car.
