Came out just wonderful, mate. Definitely got the gloss figured out!
Practice does make perfect after all.
Is the camber fixed as well? 🙂
Rene, it might be easier to fix Martin, as one does with their cat!
I don't want to be castrated!

Hello Peter 🙂 I would never ride a real "Superbike" 2-stroke but the KH at its time was a PS monster and you turned the monster into a diva alone the color makes the bike a beauty 👍 👍 👍
Spanjaard, thank you, step one in this series completed!
Jonn, I cannot seem to complete a build without loosing at least one part! As for the balance, It can be posed front wheel down too, balance is perfect.
Jens, the whole family of Tri Stars redefined performance motorcycling in all engine capacities in the seventies. I was lucky enough to ride all of the when they were current and new. Thank you for comment on the colour, I think it did what I wanted it to!
Great Work and paintjob Peter. Very Well done 👍
Next step, you need to make your own spoke wheels 😉
Spanjaard? Have you been told today?

Having a son in law who is an avid modeller pays off on Father's Day! Peter Muldoon leads the way with choices for the Dad who has everything except, a Ban Dai Darth Vader kit, a Metal Earth Freightliner kit, Tamiya Cotton Buds, a convenient flask of Jameson's, a Mandalorian Mug, an unopened bottle of Tamiya Extra Thin and a new SMS 2k kit! Thank you Mr. Muldoon for your leadership!

Peter, you really know your blue-scale - I still remember the Aussie truck finish and this is yet another sample of excelent color choice, prep & execution! 😉. Suits the car much more than the boxart yellow - well matched 👍
Cheers for that Slavo. I should post some better pix. These are lousy. I am building all of the Lamborghini models, (pun intended) with the colour choice aligned to the period. Having fun with the high gloss clear coat!
how did i miss this beauty before!!! hell of a job Peter!
i have not disagree with you, patience has a lot to do with it.... and you have spades of it! 🙂
I went through this album again. I admire the result a lot more now, having gone through a lot to get my finish just right. Top job Peter 👍

A legendary car and your build do all credit to the legend it is. Well done, Peter
Very awesome! Love the colour! And those ignition wires! ?
Thank you gentlemen! Enjoyable build if not a little protracted!!!!
Very Nice work, Mate. Well done 👍
Thanks Rui! I've been a bit busy with this but will send you some pics on what we talked about.

Wrong again Grasshopper.
Suffer in' suckertash!
And we are off again 😉, you are not old Peter, well lived... ah, I once heard how to measure the true age of a person: the feeling you have the day after you tried to prove you were young.
It's getting harder every day to prove I am not OLD. hahahahahaha
I gave up trying, when I hired someone for my team, and realised I owned socks that were older than he was. I'm not kidding, I still have 3 pairs of military issue wool socks that I was issued 34 years ago.

Thank you for you interest Slavo. If Rainbow Dash fits in the cockpit the blue corner is in severe trouble!
somehow i missed this build before... i also wondered how the prismatic Alclad woudl really look like😉
i have a feeling i see myself doing one of this kind, in pink or something in a not so very distant future...... 😛
nice pictures of the MeGg, what about the F-eggy6?
A whole new cult movement, bringing back fun to the hobby
Thank you gents! I use them for testing techniques and re starting mojos. They are a lot of fun and you can be creative.

Tim and Jimbo, this is indeed an interesting subject. It seems I am not alone! Also on my bench at the moment is a Space 1999 Eagle, a "to be assembled before being played with" toy. Far worse than the Range Rover but it was sold as such, and it's no surprise or disappointment when opened. So, the annoyance is as Tim said so perfectly, that it is sold as something it isn't. Round 2 is known, but rebranded kits from 20 years earlier only damage a brand's reputation. I have just bought and secretly (shhhhhh) started a Fujimi Lamborghini Countach which I bought specifically because it wasn't an Italari kit. Well, after viewing the contents it may as well be! The box is branded 2018 but the flash indicates a much earlier tool set! Definitely a rebrand! I have learned many useful lessons on this site and I can now add one more to the list.
Buying a model kit and voting for a politician are about the same, they both can be deceiving! LOL
Space 1999, that brings childhood memories back. I loved that series at the time, as Buck Rogers as well. Well, Peter, I am definitely looking forward to your progress on this Range Rover as the Space 1999 Eagle.
As for the discussion about the English language, and especially the Australian slang, it is sometimes hard to get for a non native English speaking, but knowing you here on SCM for quite some time, I start to read between the lines 😉
Tim! A politician is always deceiving! A model needs to be researched properly on Scalemates BEFORE purchase! Lesson learned! We should have a catch up on Skype soon too!
Lode, I cannot paint at the moment and am building an impressive stack of plastic bits and pieces that need the stuff! The Eagle is just a soft plastic toy really, not a proper model but I will be playing around with paint and moon dust to see what can be done, just for fun! RIP Martin Landau!
I used to LOVE the Space 1999, in every way, and I also made (centurys ago), the Airfix kit, bought from England.
I wil make an album with my EAGLE. Now I decided, I have to show my great qualities at the time ? ? ?,
Be careful Pete, it will be hard to beat mine?

Lode, did you notice the Liberty ship? I bought it to do that dazzle camo we talked about?
Bossy, I might need some help with all those bikes!
One kit missing is the LSM by Revelle. That will change. 😉
OK, I'll give you the 1/9 kits, I guess they are the bike equivalent of 1/16. I'm still looking out for that Tamiya 1/6 FLH with sidecar.
very nice kits to build !
Oooh! Would love to help but i've got my own costly collection of bikes to do. And like you, I even have a tank or two and the odd airplane. I wish mine were stacked as neatly as yours.

I've seen them Peter and I'm sure they're good, but I don't buy any more kits. I already stopped that addiction🙂
The idea was good though. Thx
Peter, V16s are just Double V8 Goodness.
Top job & top choice - a Hud with a car built around it! 👍, all in a nice green pattern with a hint of Israeli green on the bonnet😉
Soldier on Pete, looking forward to Your next projects!

Thank you Young Tim and Spanjaard! An enjoyable project even if it did take an eternity plus a week!
Another remarkable model, Peter! Great work!
Thanks Brandon! Enjoyed this one.
Wow Peter, that's a fine piece of art. That engine looks like it would crank right up.
Thank you very much Nathan! Glad you like it!
