    Hello everybody, I am here to present you the figure of the character from the Marvel’s Universe – Ghost Rider. There are many drawings made with this characters and I have chosen this one :

    In the first step I’ve fixed the composition.I was looking for a model of 80s of a chopper Harley Davidson, thinking that the world of the choppers is wide-opened for many transformations and you can make in the real life arrangements as you like. This model seemed that has the most dynamic shape. Soon I’ll be back with the next step.

    Hello again, I’m here to hang new pictures for the second step. You can see the basic anatomy and the development of the motocycle , even the details of the Knucklehead engine design. I needed to gut a motocycle like this to understand which elements could have. For that I started to check out for more informations on internet and I found a thread in a forum with WIP of a guy who wanted to transform a model of a Harley 883 Sportster 53 Custom.I let you the link for those who are interested in watching the thread although it’s in Spanish, but it has nice pictures :

    I had difficulties when I had to decide the separation of the elements for my assemble maybe that’s why you can see some deformation at the moment, but in the next step I recovered.

    John, Silviu, Joe many thanks for your words.See you soon with the next step.

    Hello again, I have here the final photos. I hesitated which angles to publish because many pretty spectacular because many of them are spectacular . At least this is the main angle :

    In the end I made collages that suggest a gang of bikers. The combination of the materials I used remind an subgenre of steam-punk and and I mean the combination of different copper and aluminum wires including nickel diamond burs. I was lucky with the chain that fits on the scale. Not the last, I am very impressed about the painting of the art-box as it was made by Alfonso Giraldes which is not a surprise knowing his potential to personalize any work. I leave bellow the link of coolminiornot site:http://www.coolminiornot.com/292896 Any comments are welcome as usualy . See you soon:

    Absolutely blown away!!!! Great sculpt!
    I may have misunderstood, is the bike built from scratch or based on a kit? I have been looking for ages and have never found any 70-75mm chopper kits. If they are out there I'd love to know.

    This is beautiful work. Many thanx for the SBS... Very helpful and educational
