      A couple of weeks ago I started my new work.. Why "next project"?
      I don't know why.. but i like it.. it looks so aggressive!


      The bike is based on the shovelhead engine stolen from a revell Harley Next Project 1/8 1/8 Electra Glide kit wich i'd like to modify until it would looks like a knucklehead..


      I started with the frame: I folded hand, filling the tubes with a steel wire and then were soldered to a stable seal.


      At the same time I started wheels improving them with steel wire and a lot of holes on hub and rim.. I made only a raw of spokes to see the effect and to study the spoken method..

    Excellent job.


    This post has helped me a lot for my project. It has become clearer to use plasticard cosntruir engine.


    I have a question for him. Which color used for the fuel tank?. It looks great, and would like to learn the art.

    Thanks a lot to everyone of you guys! You're great!

    YHOR, tlakin' about the tank.. it has been a casual match, between pale gold and black base ..
    I was just looking for a special effect using the salt technique, but the first try was not good, so iI removed the paint and sprayed a satin black base, than some hair spray, to insulate the base from the color above, and finally the pale gold (enamel, just for info)

    When the color was very very dry, i used an old damp brush, to remove the pale gold and let the black be visible again.

    At the end when I was satisfied for the whole effect I used the airbrush Harley Next Project 1/8 to give some weathering Harley Next Project 1/8 effect to the tank, especially on the edges.

    I'm still workin' on these days, trying to finish the barn diorama.. I scratched a tool box and a compressor, using same spare parts, and finally I painted all the thing I'm going to place all around the bench and the bike.

    Good day.

    Some time ago I asked what technique used for this beautiful model.

    I have been practicing without success. I would like to replicate this model :

    http://www.feeldesain.com/harley-davidson-sidecar.html

    The color is similar to that used by You ; no syntax exactly the same, but it is similar .

    Please, can you tell me what colors and paint brand used ?.

    I will be very grateful to your reply.

    Thank you
