  1. Olivier Spectaculaire, Impressionnant et vraiment bon. These final pictures bring all your hard work to a grand conclusion.
  2. If it wasn't for the cutting mat, I would find it very difficult to tell that this was not a 1:1 bike, in the shop, being prepared for a race.
  3. Welcome back. Once again, we can watch the interplay of the perfectionist verse the modeler... It really looks spectacular my friend.
  4. Hummm,I wasn't interested- then I read it all. Wow! Fine work Casey. Thanks for this. [aside to self: wonder what "Sky" really looks like? -I crack myself up-sometimes]
  5. Olivier I was betrayed by my mail program , as it had decided to classify your posts along with many others as spam. I was blissfully unaware of the lack until just a day ago. Regardless you progress has gone on to new heights. I am, as ever, in awe of your skills. I can almost smell the fuel and oil from here.
  6. Your skill is once again on the forefront of modelers every where ---- well ME for sure.
  7. Perhaps a look to your 3D machine about recreating B15 and 16 and surgically removing the currently mounted evil twins.
  8. Good to see your forward progress. The details are most evident and help show the visual complexity of this state of the art motorcycle.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. The Delahaye is truly a work of the modelers art. Congratulations on a job very well done.
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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
  17. 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 "
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
