      Not Supported Scratch Built

      After the Harley Next Project, i've started this new adventure always in 1/8, of course..


      This time i've decided to start the work using any kind of kit, i'll try to scratchbuild the entire motorbike. I know, it will be a long trouble..


      Till now i've done the first part of the engine, starting from the cylinders and then the cranckcase. The engine is a Knucklehead, the same of last time, but now i'm going to use original plans and measures of the engine, trying to reproduce it as well as I can ..


      From few photos and draws i've obtained the profiles of the fins, then printed on paper and glued onto plasticard. So they've been cutted and assembled.
      Same work for the case.. profiles printed on paper, then plasticard, so cutted and glued.

    I like your technique used on the rockers cover. Did you think to cast the engine in resin Unruly Knucky when you're done with it? I assume you wouldn't want to scratch-build another one for your future projects.

    I've used a kind of circle-maker I used also for mechanical drawing, sth like this:
    with this instrument i've masked the external part of the tyre, while I was spraying with flat white the internal one.

    Thank utzelu..
    Yep, I'm going crazy now scratchbuilding this, and one day i'll use it as master to obtain a little series of resin Unruly Knucky casted engines.. Someone other asked me if i can sell it, If someone interested, i can cast some models more..

    Good idea!
    And what kind of paint do you use?

    I used a common Tamiya Unruly Knucky acrylic Unruly Knucky flat white, sprayed perpendicularly to avoid paint infiltrations under the mask..

    HI Marudek!
    I just found a blueprint of the engine on google (if you look for knucklehead blueprint u'll find it!) and used a lot of detailed photos from which I obtained vectorial draws used as masks for the pieces.

    Nice job! It's a pleasure to look at such a scratch I'd like to build 1/9 Morgan three wheeler (Beattleback) but lack good reference materials. Now I ask around for a good source of blueprints (I need Matchless air cooled engine and all possible details).
