Motorcycle modeler from Louisiana
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, November 08, 2003 6:13 PM
I just wanted to inroduce myself quickly and find out how many other motorcycle modelers there are out there. I've been building models for a little over 35 years now, mostly aircraft, and recently got serious about motorcycle models. After having a motorcycle wreck last June, I am recovering from it still and started building motorcycle kits as a sort of therapy. I do mostly Harley models, but do enjoy the Tamiya crotch rockets. I'm about to start doing a chopper from a Tamiya 1/6 scale FXE1200 that I plane on making a hardtail frame from scratch for. I want to scratch build the majority of the parts with the exception of the engine and tranny. Any tips on this will be most helpful and appreciated.

I live in Louisiana and am a cabinet maker by trade. I am a founding member of the local model club here called S.W.A.M.P. and we are holding the Region 6 Regional contest here next June. I hope to meet some of y'all there. Our club is a little over 20 years old now and we are a very diversified group covering the gambit of modeling. Anyone in the SW Louisiana area is invited to our meetings held the last Tuesday of the month at the local hobby shop. We'd love to have all the visitors we can get. Oh, and I'm also a fanatic for flight sims, mainly Falcon 4.0 which I fly from my own F-16 cockpit simulator that I built. But, that's another hobby, and a lot more expensive at times.

Thanks y'all. I think this place may be a new home for my modeling hotline online.
