  1. Hi Guys, now it is ready for chassis... tbc Regards
  2. Hi Guys, short update. I have prepared a dashboard and rear panel of engine. There are some pictures of it separated and placed into engine compartment. Regards and tbc and a panel of engine
  3. I have sprayed it with aero, several very tiny layers. If it is sprayed too much, it brakes. So 5-6 times. Then dark brown ZP and clear semigloss, with aero as well.
  4. Hi Guys, because of holiday and workload, small update. I have started to work on interior. First I had covered with leather but the final result had not satisfied me due to pretty complicated curves of particular elements. So I had removed it and than painted to reach the leather-like layout. I used structured paint from ZP for leather effect and brown to make it darker. I think it is much better. I have just mounted engine and exhaust pipes, flocked spare wheel compartment and cooler with pipes. tbc, regards
  5. Do you mean that silver steel hangers? I made them from steel stripes. Maybe they should be more "used"?
  6. Hi Guys, a short update with the frame and suspension. I sprayed black semigloss at the frame not with aero but spray can. As it gives pretty strong pressure, you can get some air bulbs which once dry, then can be marked as small rust spots. All pictures of this car in real life, I've seen in the net , present fully restored ones, almost brand new. So I used this "almost" to have some rust spots and marks Later I realized that even sealed, the set was not original. This white part was broken off and missing... So I had to make it myslef. Then I have assembled front
  7. Hi Guys, return to classic cars. This time Italeri Mercedes 300 SL. As of today, engine is ready for placement. It was the poorest engine available in box. Just a piece of plastic with few elements. Originally 14 elements, but now it is 243 incl. every single nut. I had to make from scratch a lot of elements, joints, wires, tubes, nuts, equipment, modifications to come up to original shape, etc. etc. Enjoy, at the beginning comparison to "international metric system", i.e. lighter regards
  8. Hi, answering to keefr22 question, these are pictures of crayons I use with an example how to make them useful. They result in a bit (less then chipping technique) of usage effect. Some scratches and little rust. Regards,
  9. Another tip is that look of the chains wheel, i ve just put grey primer and than black semigloss, diluted 3:2 with max preassure, 4 bars. At the end light grey acrylic crayon :) I used those crayons on both chains too regards
  10. Btw the jack is 15-minute work. It is aero painted with tamiya x7, next step is decals as they are supposed to look like labels, no clear , and finaly colured with acrylic crayons light and dark grey. That is it. Crayons result in this „usage” effect :) regards
  11. Hi Guys, thanks for very positive feedback; I am glad you like. It was really nice work with nice outcome. Now I am sure, that this is the first but not the last motorbike and next is somewhere ahead . Best regards
  12. Hi Guys, here it is, it is ready. The model is a very good quality and modifications&replacement friendly. I have replaced plastic spokes with steel ones, leather on the seat, a lot of missing wires and connections. Painted with ZP white pearl, black gloss and onyx blue + diamond gloss. At the end I am really satisfied with the outcome. Best regards and see you soon in "Work in Progress" section with next project in 1:16 scale. Best regards
  13. Hi Guys, slowly but is coming up to the end. Today update with front part of this classic, i.e. suspension, wheel and some wires. I ve posted this step as "skull" will appear and cover front side soon . Fuel tank to be placed soon as well. Regards and see you hopefully in "ready for inspection" section. Regards
  14. Hi Guys, update as of today with rear part assembled. Now it is time for front suspension and head, regards to be continued
