DaAgostini 1/4 scale Easy Rider chopper

Postby Morris » Thu May 31, 2018 6:48 am

I received the first or initial order of the kit - I've never tried a DeAgostini kit before - 1/4 scale is large(!) and you have to down load an Instruction PDF off of the site....ImageImageImageImageImage

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: was seriously thinking getting this one, but as s.w.m.b.o gently, ahem, pointed out I've spent more than I can really afford on the M.F.H kits :cry:

I hear you, I'll be lucky if I get tea night (or wear it) after S.W.M.B.O. walked in whilst I was opening it..... :(

Okay, steps 1-2-3 - - The tank is heavy so don't drop like I did taking it form the plastic tray - nicked a star on the chair leg.....very tiny but was aggravating - :angry-banghead: The rest was straight forward - :D ImageImageImageImageImage

Hi Casper, the centre of the wheel to top of the fork yoke is 10" - including the handle bars - 15" - its big ( or it is to me, my first 1/4 scale partwork...)

The '3rd phase arrived - And I got stuck into that yesterday afternoon. It's mainly some handle par mounted bits plus the two exhausts (long and short or front and rear, as usual for a Harley V-twin) - The very tiny bolts and nuts for the exhaust clamps was a challenge for my fat stiff fingers and less that optimal eyesight. (i.e. I'm an old mannie... ;) - So a spent a good part of the afternoon on my hands and knees paying homage to the carpet monster to return my bits and pieces I air launched or dropped..... :angry-banghead: - Anyway; pics to follow in sequence....
