    Thanks Colin. The bike is awesome, but was a real challenge to assemble , over 50 parts including photo etch and it is tiny ! The fatigues were painted with Vallejo English Uniform , Still getting to grips with Acrylics as I am used to Oils , Who said you cant teach an old dog new tricks !

    Cheers

    Great work, Mario, I love both the bike and rider.
    I'm curious what you've got planned for the base too.

    Such a good job! How about an American MP on a Harley next? Bill Hearne did a brilliant large scale version of this way back in the 70's, it would be great to see you re-create this. Anyone got an image of Bill's figure?

    Hello. Do You mean the figure called "itchy rider" or similar which was once featured in Military Modelling magazine?

    I like Rich's idea. I'd have to get two of them though... One to paint as is. The other would give me the bike with the "45" engine, rigid frame and front end to chop and the rider to convert into something more civilian ;):sneaky:
