That's some mighty nice work on the upholstery, I recently built the triple and was just as surprised about the quality control or lack of, though you seem to be pulling it together, no easy feat….I found that the yellow background decals are a weird size compared to the box pictures and I painted the front circle to the fairing so that it was more accurate….also I would've needed to use a blow torch to soften the decal . I got the bike together though it didn't really want to be…..the way the front wheel hub fits between the forks is interesting also…..It's great to see another, take this kit to task, ps did my rear fork springs white and seat red. Looking forward to the completed article.

Jonn, the seat is supposed to be red but I wanted to upholster it and only had black vinyl or actual tan leather. Yep, the kit is rubbish from start to finish, such a beautiful machine deserved better. I restrained myself from adding extra details as I wanted this over and done with. I have two of Casey Stoner's Ducati's, in the same scale and also Italari which I am now dreading!

Has anyone got a viable alternative metal foil to bmf? I would like to try something different.
18 May, 09:21
Kyle DeHart
I have yet to try any kind of foil work at all, though it's on my techniques I'd like to give a go at some point.

Recently there was a review of another foil. It is in german, but I suggest to translate it using deepl.com:

Peter Hardy
Thanks Bugs. I did as you suggested but it still isn't clear, think it still moved?

While not a foil and not sure how it would work for larger surfaces, but have you tried AK True Metal wax? I've found the gun metal and brass to be quite good.

I was advised by a fellow modeller today via a PM that I was transgressing what is acceptable in European Culture by the title of an album / project I am currently working on. The project and Album contained the name of a prominent nazi figure and I now understand that this is offensive to some Europeans. As I live in a place that is as far from Europe as it is possible to be and still be on planet Earth I was entirely unaware of the situation. This I suppose is going to happen from time to time on a world wide medium. I would like to make this public apology to anyone who was offended by my naming of “You know who” and hope they can forgive me. In my own defence this is not a situation that would ever arise in my country and I am of course totally perplexed as to why “you know who” cannot be named but it is acceptable to mention the names of other prolific murderers. That said, I am far from where this person did his worst by humanity and trust that I will not find myself treading on other people’s sensitivities in future.

You shouldn´t apologize. Beeing offended is a trend nowadays and the worst ist to accept these offended people and begin to censor everything which could offend someone. That´s against our democratic core values. None of them experienced the cruelty of Nazi dictatorship so what are they offended about? If it would have been Nazi propaganda it would be ok to moan about it but it wasn´t. They should better get along. If we start here where would it end? My family experienced the cruelty of russian invaders in east germany in 1945 where they murdered, tortured and raped the civilians. But that didn´t make me offended about russian WW2 military models. I even built some by myself, model building is art and not political. So the best way to get along with offended people is to ignore them, they have to get along with the reality and stop living in their own flower world.

Everything said here thanks to Viking. We cannot survive as humankind by turning ourselves into a bunch of crybabys! Sorry for the hard words but please stay in reality! There is no more to say here now let's leave this stupid question alone and concentrate on modelling.

Peter, a question because I like the picture 26 so much: Is the vegan dog your pet or wild and just visited you?
17 March, 17:53
Peter Hardy
Alec, it is still pretty rough in spots but I have improved. To be fair I doubt a Renault has ever looked that shiny and I also have my doubts that they clear coated in 1910 either but I have a need to get better at this car thing.
Jimbo, one thing I have learned is if you paint a model a very dark shade it is difficult to see on display if you don't have a well lit display cabinet like a Kiwi mate of mine. The brass I am very disappointed with. It is supposed to be polished brass but just one touch dulls it.
Spanjaard, I thank you!
Villiers, that it is appreciated makes it worthwhile, thank you for dropping in!
Bugs, It is actually illegal to keep a kangaroo here but if one wants to leave it will jump a fence anyway. A friend found her abandoned by her mother, kangaroos do sacrifice a Joey when threatened by a predator to escape. Sounds terrible but the mother will usually have another in stasis internally and ready to replace a lost youngster. In his case my mate had room, food and water, and an old dog who was happy with the new company. They get along fine. The dog pretty much ignores the 'roo most of the time. But bed time they do cuddle up on occasions.

You will need fuel. Lots of it! Most interstaters have a range of 2500 kilometres. If you are running stock crates from stations to fattening properties closer in you need a range of 3000+.

I bought the Peterbilt COE and conventional. Yeah after an a few hours I feel it was a good experience but for me they were filed in the trash bin as it's very easy to mess up since I am just getting back into the swing of things. I hope you enjoy the FLC build. I might try them again and diecast builds.

Robbie. The SMS is THE best paint I have ever used, and by a loooooooooooong way. The Mando mug has been commandeered by Mrs Hardy. The Ban Dai kits are great! Great for recovering mojo as are the Metal Earth kits. I wear welding gloves when building them. The Tamiya cotton buds are perfect cleaning tools for cleaning up the murder site and air brushes.
