PostSubject: NCR RACER    Mon Jan 06, 2014 12:06 pm

Hi guys,

Here is a small update, as I had mentioned.... I have been tinkering! I've substituted molded blobs for actual scaled machine bolts and nuts where possible in my attempt to "super detail" the kit. It's a slow process - a labour of love in a way.   I love you 

I have modified the rear brake booster assembly to mimic a the modified approach used on real NCR's rather than use stock frame, as the biker lighten the frame by cutting off section that are excessive and heavy.

Tell me what you think and any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.  cyclops 

Here are some of the plumbing and bits I've put together.



Here is the modified brake booster bracket. (unfortunately not so clear)



Here is the modified trailing arm with 0.8mm screws and bolts for the rear adjusters, a 1.4mm (M16) bolt and nut for the rear shaft end, and 0.8mm bolt heads (M10) for lower rear suspension mounts.

That is going to be a killer build Snowy - judging by this so far, outstanding.

The NCR is inching forward.

I've finally managed to lay hands on some Alclad II paints and am now in the process of trying it out on the NCR. I'll be posting some pics in the near future.

So, I'm hoping to impress or seriously disappoint myself. Suspect 

My airbrush skills are in need of improvement, but I'm up for the challange.

PostSubject: Alclad II - It actually works!!   Mon Apr 28, 2014 9:57 pm

Wowsers!! Shocked 

Damn, this Alclad actually works!







I'm honestly impressed with this stuff - my airbrushing still needs work, but this stuff is dead easy to apply!! Guys, if you can, then you must give it a swing!!

I've just partially put the motor together, you can see the nice contrast between the dark aluminium, chrome and aluminiuma airframe painted components. Ive still got to fit the accelerator cables, fuel lines, breather tube, chain and bits, not mention a bit of weathereing and wear & tear.





As you can see, I have been busy. I do endorse the Alclad 2 products, as they do what they say on the can.
