    Nice start up of this build Mario. Looking forward to seeing more. Are your finished builds in an album anywhere? I would like to see them as some I have only seen as details but never of the finished model.

  2. The wheel spokes on these Pocher Bikes are a huge let down they are to heavy gauged ( over Scaled ) I'm really looking forward to how you tackle them, will you be machining new rims and hubs and of course spoking them ?

    Mario, I'm sorry I meant the cars that we have seen in progress shots of. I realize that there are no finished pics of the bikes yet.

    I had to leave the cars still for a while, my client is eager to see at least 2 of the bikes finished, so I'm giving priority to them....

    Anyway, as soon as I have a little time, I'll resume all the other projects....

    Cheers

    Hey Sean...not the case in this particular kit, the rims are all metal and when duly polished look awesome, and the spokes are special pins which are laced one by one on the wheels, the kit provides a special metal apparatus for bending the spokes at special angles and lengths....

    I'll show this in detail when the moment comes....

    See ya....

    i dont know if it is missing some parts,the bag with screw is open,so it is possible it is missing few screws.

    and couple of the white round thing you use when you build the wheel is damaged.

  10. Pity Protar didn't use this construction process in all their motorcycle kits ? Sounds a lot like Pocher with their cost cutting going from real spoke metal wire for their wheels to the latter kits having plastic cast spoke wheels.

    We continue with some engine details getting ready....

    The primary chain cover had a bass-relief in the plastic as a ventilation output that I didn't quite like, so I drilled and filed away and made a undercut in the rear of the cover to place a micromesh Protar Bianchi 350 cc 1/9 scale ...

    Like how it came out, despite the very fine mesh, you can see through...

    Notice also the lower part of the cylinder, whose fins are assembled one by one, and fixed with screws...

    [/IMG][/IMG]


    [/IMG][/IMG]

    [/IMG][/IMG]



    See some special hardware made instead of the kits parts, the distribution shaft turned from aluminum, oil intakes made from tube & wire, the cylinder's fins sandwich fixed with screws, etc..
