I've seen some wonderful builds of the Italeri 1/9 Triumph 3HW. My technical modelling skills can't match them, but as it is painting models that really butters my parsnips, I went for an unloved civilian look.

That really is a triumph, a triumph of modelling, painting and photography skills, I’m very impressed indeed.

Thanks all. I've seen some superb builds of this model where the wheels have been rebuilt with fine wire spokes and massive amounts of detail have been added. I'm more about the overall look of the thing. I wish I had the patience and the skill for the other stuff.

When I was building this one I found these elsewhere online.

On the first one not only did he rebuild the wheels but he also made wire springs to go in the seat! The result is incredible.

The Polish guy rebuilt the wheels too but also made a new carb out of brass.

This stuff is way beyond me!

You're not alone!

 

And anyway it doesn't matter when you have the finishing skills to make a model, like others have said, look like the real thing!

 

I've been back to look at this 3 or 4 times tonight, and really love the 'look' of it!

Nice Trumpy mate, looks like it was ridden hard and put away tired and wet in a shed somewhere for a few decades.👍

Fantastic! If that was 1:1, a few young chaps with beards would pay top coin for it in that condition! You've captured the patina perfectly.

I'm not a bike person but this looks totally real to me. Beautifully done.

Wow, that Barn Find Trumpy could come straight out of the sales pages of a well known auction site.
