This is a joint project coming from Brundledonk and Choppa Nutta
we have created a joint account in order to share our build [smile]

Enid Blyton's Pete and Paul go mad in Wales for a week !
and what a great week it was  [biggrin]
I did the building and Pete did the painting,
so one might say this model has been Chop'n'Donked [wink]


We realise this might be breaking a rule or two here and we have no problem with it be excluded from final consideration, 
we've done this for the sheer pleasure of it and for the joining in with the GB in some way
we hope that everyone is cool about it, it remains all our own work of course [smile]

we hope you like our progress so far [smile]

We shall kick off with my concept drawings first ....
Gotta say I am totally stoked with Pete's paint work, looks very close to the photoshop work.
A big thank you for all his work and skills in helping me bring an idea to life !

Twas a great a week and I learned a huge amount, it was a proper master class !!
Anyhow, I'll hand you over to Pete for our progress pics [smile]

Cheers,
Paul.

the base kit was an Italeri 1/6 scale Honda RC 211v MotoGP kit

Paul made some modifications to the parts and I'll leave it to him to explain what they were

the insides of the cowlings were based in silver and clear red was used as a top coat then gradually darkened with black for shading

[6d7cfc119ea82e6eaac2]


[4634ce96edd4dcdb2068]


Fuel tank finished the same way as the wheel ( the last coat of clear green has yet to be added )

[b8fe8d4d3d50b8a5e431]


Seat cowling in the same colours and the seat painted to try and give a leather look

Cheers,
Pete.

Body fairing in green

[3bd961c79906b9b576bb]


A quick dry fit

[1c52b3ff35d14ffd36c5]


All green painted parts were given a couple of costs of zero 1k lacquer

[b626aa4bf778fb5137e1]


Paul scratchbuilt the rear legs and blades and will be along explain how he achieved it

Blades were based in gloss black then alclad polished aluminium followed by a bit of clear blue to add some tone

The frame and swing arm are a black base then edges were sprayed lightly with silver followed by clear red gradually darkened with black ( as per the inside of the fairings )

Lots of modifications to the bodywork ( Paul to explain )

Cheers Fabian [smile]

Well it got back home safe and sound without a scratch ! [smile]
and I just love Pete's paint work on this beast,
I'm getting that fizzy feeling James May is always banging on about [biggrin]
Couldn't have wished for a better build buddy [thumb]

But what a master class of airbrushing,
I've learned such a lot in Donkashire [biggrin]

Couple of quick dry fit photos as I plan out what's next, detail painting, make the legs good and adjust their proportions etc.
tail and pincers, some gentle weathering and all that

I'll put some pics showing a comparison of before after for the cut and carving on the fairing,
I felt the Honda's fairing was a touch ugly and needed opening up a touch to get the lines to flow better,
plus I wanted the face to look meaner [smile]

Mounting the swing arm on the front was a case of a pair of A frames mounted to the engine block,
which aint symmetrical and numerous adjustments had to be made for the swing arm hinge axle to become square and true..
some mods to the exhausts.

The nice thing about this thing being so bolt together is that I can swap parts on and off,
which means I can explore a few design options such as swapping the legs for a rear wheel,
take the tail on and off, without the fairing looks pretty cool too.

I'm going to try and keep the limbs posable for some dynamic final reveals ..

Anyhow, couple of pics on my bench with the legs in sledge mode for high speed

Cheers,
Paul [smile]

Thank you kindly Michael
Much appreciated by us both [smile]


Thought I'd put together a couple of pics going through the chop work.

Swing arm hinge had to be narrowed to make sure it would fit in the front
which required a few dry fits to determine where the new hinge should be.
Nest up were the A frames to hold the swing arm hinge axle at the right place.
The engine is asymmetrical which required many adjustments to get them both to sit square.
The spring/shock absorber mount on the cylinder head was fashioned from sprue,
length trimmed till I got the right angle.
Swing arm turned upside down to expose this nice detail [smile]

[384689-15629-14] 


Aside from the legs the other major piece of chop work was the fairing getting a reshaping.
You can see from the red lines that which I carved out. Note that I forget to draw in a red line for the side vent too, oh well [smile]
I wanted to get a bit more sweep in the lines and to open the mouth out to make it look more
aggressive and to make more room for the swing arm being moved to the front of the bike.
One mistake I did make is where the fairing joins the fuel tank, I should have done a dry fit before cutting ... doh !
But we only had a week to do this rather ambitious project so there was some rushing going on,
plus much creative to'ing and fro'ing [biggrin]

[384690-15629-10] 

Legs are proving challenging to make them posable and take the weight of this beast !
The metal fuel tank compounds the issue, 1/6 scale makes for quite a chunky [smile]

I think I've come up with a way to make the legs posable using a ratchet like a deck chair,
so really more Adjustable than Posable, so to speak, but good enough to demonstrate a range of movements etc.
The stiffness of wire required makes things too difficult to move effective and will likely break something ..

Really I need to make the tail next, that way I know how much weight the legs need to take.
Which needs to be 30+cm long with about 20 segments of tapering dimensions, that fits onto the back neatly ...
As Deep Thought once said "Tricky, but I can do it !" [biggrin]

My thinking thus far is to make a wooden plug the same shape as the rear tail fairing with a rounded end
and use that to vac form 20 segments and cut them down one smaller than the last to get the taper required.
Then drill holes in the tip of each segment, threading wire through using short sections of silicon tube to held the length.
The mounting will be wires glued into a block of sprue which screws on under the seat all of which slots through the open end of the tail fairing.
Carve a spike from some sprue and then I have the challenge of matching that green ! oh boy ! [biggrin]

The vac form segments will be quite light so I won't need much wire to hold them up and pose it etc.
and less weight is good for the legs [wink]

Of course thoughts turn to making a rider for this beast of a bike, but again needs to be light ...

Anyhow, hopefully I have more later this week
Cheers,
Paul.

Paul's imaginative genius combined with Pete's exemplary paint work. I think I'm in love.

This is as good as when Pete painted the Indiana Jones mine cart.

Who wants to come visit me for a week? LOL!

Those are prize winning results from both of you!

Cheers boys! Well frickin done!!
