Re: Amazing Motorcycle Model

Talk about detail, I'd almost expect to be able to fire it up and ride it.

Re: Amazing Motorcycle Model

If only the modeler had spent a tiny fraction of time and effort on the web page design compared with the model itself. What about and buttons?

I agree, the model is impressive.

Can you imagine the patience it took to put the chain together?

Re: Amazing Motorcycle Model

WOW!!!!! I've built that model straight from the box, without the detail sets. As nice as it is, it's nowhere near the level of this one. And those detail sets aren't cheap either. The builder has a lot of money in that.

I've built a plastic chain in a kit and that was no fun. The metal looks a bit better to build with.

Some builders are just insane with the details. I don't have that much patience.

Thanks for the post.

Re: Amazing Motorcycle Model

Since that is his blog page and not a formal web site, I thought it was very well done. As for time patience and money, how many of us spend those kind of bucks on the farkles for our bikes.

He would have to buy it in parts and then assemble it....wonder what the price would be if you bought all the parts seperately !!

I`d say 5-10 times more!

Loaded a lot faster when I put it in Google for translation (though it may be because I already loaded the page)
