    You are (indeed) doing a much better job on it then I know that I could do on it.
    All of the components are coming to life and it looks like everything is going together nicely.

    This will be one mean looking machine. The model as well as the real thing.
    That air filter (or whatever it is) is pretty good. I like how you work with the round parts, the transitions are pretty smooth. Looking forward to next pictures ;)

    I don't think that exhaust could be done any better. It looks perfect! Astonishing, really. You are one of the cleanest builders. :thumb:

    call that a crappy camera. If you could see it up close, it looks like shit (pardon my language)

    I'm surprised that shit isn't filtered out. The effin' amazing! That picture is way bigger than the pipe itself, you too modest. It awesome. I have seen this done on some of them that look like their done with muffler wrap, which actually gives a pretty cool look, but I don't think it's intentional. You part looks like black chrome! :)

    You are doing an OUTSTANDING job for only "doing what you can".
    I am greatly impressed with your work.
    Keep it up, and you will have a GREAT piece of art on your hands.

    So begins the long tedious process of the cooling fin fiasco. I left the edges uncolored to simulate the edge sanding on the real fins

    I like that you left the cooling fins with "uncoloured" edges.
    It does give it a much nicer look.
    You are doing a GREAT job on it.
    I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    It simulates the grinded edge of the fins after powder coating that he did on the actual bike. Plus if I had colored the edges, not only would it look like garbage, but it wouldn't be true to the real Milla Migulia. :)

    When I used to use "Kal-Guard" to gun coated the engines I used to build, I would take a file to the edge of the fines to brighten them. It looks nice! :)
