    Hi, all
    I've been away from here almost a year.
    Currently I've been working on one of my private projects, "Kettenhund", which is 1/9 ESCI Zündapp KS750 vignette project.

    This is an experimental "mixed" project, that I do traditional sculpting with clay, digital modeling & 3D printing, scratch-building parts and detailing with old-school plastic cards, etc.

    First I was thinking post pics in "sculpting" section but it's not only sculpting so I will post progress here.

    Kaz,

    I can't wait to see what you do with this! It reminds me of a similar project that Bill Hearne did many, many years ago. I am sure yours will be better! :cool:

    Hi Mike,

    I'm glad you like this project! I use your 1/9 SS officer as an ideal 1/9 model reference all the time while sculpting this project.

    Of course I know Bill Hearne's work, I only saw it in Shep Paine's book, and it's the first complete 1/9 side car vignette I have ever seen.
    I thought it's a shame that there's not so many 1/9 figure vignette with ESCI 1/9 sidecars which is long-run big hit model.
    That's why I decided to sculpt a rider for it. :)

    Here's some progress pics of the ground work. I use Apoxie Sculpt and Sculpey FIRM for the ground and rubbles, wrapped around the edge with 0.2mm plastic card.

    I scratch-built a hooks of the side box with plastic card, it requires 4 copies so I casted it in resin.
    Also I used Evergreen plastic card a lot for detailing ups.

    Thanks Steve, I had to do 4 wheels, which was very time consuming. :)

    Sculpiting figure is almost finishing, needs a bit more fixes but I'd like to share some pics.
    Hope you like them.

    You need to do this figure, converted for the single bike as well. I would love one

    MrBMB, converting for a single bike will be nice too. Shame to found out that BMW doesn't fit properly.

    This gets better and better, dog is a great idea for the sidecar.
    It can be a it tricky getting the figures to sit nicely on these kits, I found the bikes are a little off scale compared to 1/9 figure anatomy when I did mine. Looks like you overcame this well with your figure.

    Oh yes, fitting and to make "look good and natural" was the hardest thing. Are these bikes a bit smaller or bigger? or mis-scaling?
