The Last Crusade Motorcycle

    Here is what I'm working on now. Spidey was so much fun I decided to do another non-military subject. Well......almost. It's Andrea's version of the Last Crusade. Give me some pointers on the motorcycle please . If you see some bright shiny metal that looks out of place, chalk it up to me dropping this *&$% thing! I haven't completely fixed it yet.
    Indy is just about done with the flesh being the last major hurddle in my way before his completion. Then it's on to Dr. Jones.

    Thanks, Jim





    Very nice - I have one of these to do as well (for the boss . Looking forward to seeing how you carry it off. I hope my motorcycle looks half as good as yours.

    Hello Jim,
    I have a feeling you have done armor before. Your cycle is looking great and now I may have to take a closer look at one myself. Keep us posted as you finish the figs.

    Funny you should say that Guy. Yes, I did start out with armor. I tried a figure one day just to see how it made a model look and never looked back. I do have a new outlok on model though. I don't paint and weather them the same way anymore (Thanks Chris (y) ). What you see here is all Andrea paint (yes, you can airbrush them). One drybrush (I hardly ever use this anymore) , lots of washes, tones and pastels (MMP). Indy is coming along nicely (but slowly). Uncle sam has me kinda busy these days.

    Colin, I'm sure your's will look better. Just remember this. A Metal Motorcycle Is HEAVY ! I was riminded of this the hard way. I had it on the base twisting and turning while I was doing the final painting then........

    KER PLUNK! YEAH! Let's here it for the Bozo

    Otherwise, it's not too hard. CAREFULLY study the instructions and pictures on the box. Also, get FIM #6. Important pics in there.

    Thanks, Jim

    it's one of the kits i want to do in the future... now i'm saving for it because it's too expensive for me

    Hi Jim
    I have thought about building this kit, unfortunately its the motor cycle
    that puts me off.
    I have never built a tank in my life, I admire people that do for the work

    Are the instructions clear (idiot proof)?
    Keep posting on your progress.

    Hi Jim,

    The cycle looks great! Its funny that you mentioned that you were once an armor builder. I was too. Decided to do a figure, and have been hooked ever since. It also changed how I would paint armor if I were to do ine again.

    Always a pleasure to view your work as well as the other modelers on this site.

    Thanks Brad. I too haven't built any armor either. I have started quiet a few though. Armor for me now is more of a break when I start to get burned out. Like you, I will paint and finish an armor kit ENTIRELY different noe compared to what I used to do. I agree, I find everyone's galleries inspiring as well.

    Thanks, Jim

    Hey Jim,
    I looks really good. And even better when you consider the fact that you dropped it :eek: . Keep up the good work, hope to see it in person this year...
