Hey H.O.W.,

That is very nice.  Lot's of excellent detail for 1/18.  I'm doing my motorcycle build now and even 1/18 is small for me to get the detail.  I really like what you did.

Regards,

Hog

its 1/8th scale not 1/18th so its pretty big so adding detail was alot easier for a motorcycle build

Great job on that build Morgan, a few years back I was at a local cruise night and this woman had a '46 Harley on display and it was really cool.
