CONSTRUCTION OF A SCALE MODEL

 "In order to build a model on scale I always make it starting off from the original model, first I observe the motorcycle in full detail to become completely familiar with its general lines, otherwise it would be possible to lose any detail. I begin to copy or to trace the elements that take engravings, decals, fotolites etc. from the real motorcycle; these elements are the only ones that I do not do in my factory.

 In the first place, I begin drawing the frame and wheels with milimetre scale paper 1/6, here it is where construction and assembly of these elements begin. It is then when the motorcycle begins to have a general form, frame and wheels; from this point on I begin to draw the plan and begin the construction of the engine and the rest of the parts until I finish the model.

 This it is the moment when one adjusts and check the operation of all the mobile elements of the motorcycle: brakes, clutch, wheels, transmission, etc. Then I dismount completely all the pieces and give them the finishing touch, polishing, nickel, chrome platings, decoration and painting. Then I begin the assembly process again, which takes me approximately between 250 and 400 hours, depending on the model".

The usual materials are:

 

Steel

Aluminum

Brass

Thin O-wire

Napa Leather

Polycarbonate

Automotive Paintings

Etc‚...

 

Once the model is finished, one album of memory with documentation and photos showing the global building and assembly process is given to the customer. A copy of the planes on scale 1/6 is included in this file
