    Welcome to SMC hotrodman. Very nice Indian and great photography also. Did it go together ok? And have you added extra details?
    I've never owned a Gunze kit, or a Protar kit.
    The 1/25th scale stuff can go in the "off topic" section. I have a 1/25th B61 Mack in there.
    Cheers mate,
    Dave.

    The front fork was a pain in the butt, and I actually needed three hands to get it together. Some wiring added and a new gearshift knob in stainless steel :) Also redid the rearshocks with aluminium tubes.

    Very nice build. Got any build pic's to share? I'm especially interested in knowing how you did the seat. If thats paint then its the best faux leather I've ever seen.

    Very nice buildup of a difficult but nicely done kit. I also have one but messed up building the rims and haven't touched it since. One day I will get the nerve up to make new rims and have at it again.

    Thank you gentlemen, and thanks for the nomination
    The seat is painted, and I usually do not take any in progress shots of my work. Guess Im too lazy, but heres a fast run thru of how I did it: I used different washes Indian sport scout and drybrushing effects to accomplish the worn leather look. First a primer Indian sport scout coat off course, and then painted with a much lighter color hue than I want it to look finished. After it dried, I put on some washes Indian sport scout of a chestnut wash (Actually in this case, the Chestnut ink from Citadel, the wargaming company). Then I drybushed some highlight around the edges a bit lighter than I wanted it, and a wash again. The last thing I did was setting the seat in a horisontal angel, and did a wet wash so the color puddled up in the sunken areas in the seat, thus the darker, worn look. When dried a thin coat of flat clear and some slight polishing over the edges to get that semi shiny used leather look. Hope it made any sense

    Beautiful job on the Indian. I bought one of those many years ago. I had assembled the engine and started on the frame. The die castings were badly warped and when I tried straightening them they broke. After a lot of repairs I finally stuffed it.

    Great job on that Indian. I love those old Indians more than I love the old Harleys.

    As we are an international community English is better to understand than greek.
