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!

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 👍 👍 👍

Peter Hardy
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!

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!

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 👍
9. August, 09:26
Peter Hardy
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!

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.

Peter Hardy
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
2. April, 05:09
Lode Schildermans
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 😉
2. April, 05:36
Peter Hardy
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!
2. April, 07:59
Rui S
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?
