  1. Your skill is once again on the forefront of modelers every where ---- well ME for sure.
  2. Perhaps a look to your 3D machine about recreating B15 and 16 and surgically removing the currently mounted evil twins.
  3. Good to see your forward progress. The details are most evident and help show the visual complexity of this state of the art motorcycle.
  4. Olivier, Once again you have been merciful to my humble self. Of Course, the views were enlarged and the "real view" would not show any error at all. I have removed my eye glasses and can now see clearly what you point out is true. I shall go sit in the coroner until my name is called or I get really hungry.
  5. Olivier, So much fine work on an important, highly visible part of the motorcycle. However, after all this fine and extensive work I feel compelled to point out a small point I have noticed. re: the size and number of wire wraps on your model vs the pictured example.. I include this mash up picture to make clearer my point. Please understand I mention this only to help you keep your high standards in creating this model. Feel free to ignore me.
  6. Olivier, Once again your "madness" has out done its self. I'm sure this WIP could be used by Honda race mechanics as a training manual.
  7. Olivier, Is it necessary to replace the Scale Motorsport carbon decal with the Tamiya carbon? That is like asking if a newspaper cartoon is a good as a Claude Monet hanging on the museum wall. Once again you have held to your requirements and not let the market place force you to accept any less. Little did the realize who they were dueling dealing with in these matters
  8. The Delahaye is truly a work of the modelers art. Congratulations on a job very well done.
  9. Magnificent work. the details added here at the last are incredible. I do know the answer to the "great wheel-tire debate" but hate to spoil the fun for everyone else -----------yeah, right
  10. Looking at the "before" picture it looks like the gap is too big to ever correct. Then looking at your elegant solution, it seems almost simple. As do most solutions after the fact. Well Done!
  11. Olivier: I beg your pardon for my thoughtless phrasing. As I was attempting to only make a small silly comment. However, your most complete and informative answer does make your process understandable and is even more impressive to me. Again, I beg your pardon for my thoughtless phrasing. p.s. The process has shown its worth. The carbon fiber looks spectacular. Very well done
  12. Good thinking and your asking for clarification is a wise direction. It only takes a small bit of confusion to not get the expected results. As to: The last picture from your message, in the last lines, Do I understand that you have taken your decals, glued them to post-it notes and glued the post-it notes to another sheet ? ----I will have to read that again, I guess "Let the good times roll "
  13. Seeing how you deal with each setback and how the corrected result is better than before It inspires one and gives me hope that some day I to will be able to replicate your results. in a small aside: I hope before the next century-sigh.
  14. Olivier, Another tour de force, in making a model better than it was ever thought possible. The frustration of having "the one decal" commit to the "fold- up-ums" is madding. Though, I am equally confident you will come to a successful end. As wild thought have you thought of trying to have a painting mask made, as is done for national markings on air craft models? one example: http://www.montex-mask.com/en/home or: https://dnmodels.com/ or having someone with a vinyl cutter (Cricut is one brand, re: https://cricut.com/en_us? ) could make them for you? Regardless good luck and keep having fun, I know I am.
  15. Olivier, such good news, as you return to the "model extraordinaire". You seem to have found the balance between the "old" methods and the now new ones. As a result of your trials and tribulations in the paint/surfacer department, I have learned a lot. The foremost is I shall no longer use any filler except PVA White glue and only paint with paint for children's craft projects. This way I shall avoid all problems and have a model to show off in my models cave * . Wellllll, as I have all those paint bottles on my shelves I suppose I should be "frugal" (OK Cheep) and use them up first. Modeling can be such a complex business, eh? * à plus
  16. Forge ahead Olivier. The road may seem endless but there is always a cave à vin en bord de route, somewhere ahead. Just to rest a bit of course
  17. Nice finish up, to a classic of the older modern age.
  18. And this is why we all love the Mustang and the twin, they are just, almost, nearly, sorta, a little, bit alike. In some ways . Seriously- an amazing amount for detail information in this post, and not a flicker of ill will or bad feelings. This is why I like this oft read, little responded to form. Thanks all.
  19. After reading of the paint disaster, I went over to the "refreshment station" and had a drink and as You are French I forgo the beer and switch to the vin to "pour aider une amie" .
  20. Well we see how to take a complete kit and start to renovate (i.e. to restore to a former better state [as by cleaning, repairing, or rebuilding]) the spokes of the wheels. And I was so worried you would have nothing to do on this kit except just build it But as a thought, have you considered using your 3D printer for the spokes? With a good rendering and CAD could it not be a better solution? Regardless I await your return to "The Real Model" yes, the Mustang. EDIT: I had not realized there was a page 2 when I wrote. Now that I have enjoyed your skillful use of new tool making, I have amended the post to more easily reflect your current state of affairs.
