Re: Proton KR '06

Hi mates!! well now I'm here to bump this thread with a lot of photos
I can see that there aren't the photos of the secon day so this thread is too much old so I will update it a little .

Think that the first pictures where taken a long time ago, only the last 10 are from today.


















A lot of work to do with the rear suspension.



















If you see the frame too much long of the front part, I saw and studied a lot this part and I came to the conclusion that this bike had the position a little out, also I compared the axis of the suspension, and it is well positioned.











Well guys hope you like them.

As you can see the frame is on its end, so I suppose that for the next weekend it will be finished, this will be an important point, that is where all the pieces are attached.

Also I want to know please any moderator or admin can change the thread name for this: KR 211V 2006
Thank you!!

Thank you,
The material was foam, it is special to sculpt but in the first picture of the tank and the cowl on the frame it was in resin, I always want to make the main shape with foam, then work a little with it and then copy the piece in resin, resin is a harder material and I can work better with it.

Bye!

Re: Proton KR '06

I am really stunned by your work and your ambition. That frame looks as it is getting somewhere. Body parts also looks great.

I must say that last remark of yours had quite a sour taste to it, Roca.... The number of comments isn't linear to the amount of ohhs and ahhs in front of the screen. And I comment at my own choice and not to satisfy someones ego.
best regards
Joel

The first test I will do it with my own printer (Inkjet printer Epson Photo R800) if I will sell the kit, I think I will contact to some companies to make the decals.

Why I said this? Because there isn't an interest in the motorbikes forum (not just my thread), just check my last line on the post of the pictures, I ask to any moderator the change the title of the thread, but it still the same.
I don't want to show you my work only to say ohhs or ahhs, I put the work here because I want to know your opinion about if everything is right, I do the work but for my it's very important to know the opinion of the people, I think this is how I make my models. I'm a little disappointed that after that work only 3 or 4 give me an opinion (thank you guys) but we start again with the problem of the board, I suppose I remember other times when with a lot of comments or when I was on the car subforum.
I always said the same, we (those who love the motorcycle modeling) need a BIG forum, I tried it but it was a disaster, so I think the forum shouldn't belong to any site, just a forum.

I don't want to have problems or something like this, I will be here the next weekend to update the project, with replys or without replys.

Let's go ready for Qatar GP!!

Thank you mates!

Re: Proton KR '06

This is what i wanted to ask - are you going to produce this bike, or you make it only for yourself.
Because if it will be on a good price (not on MFH level ) then i think i will buy one, although it is not a Rossi machine.
Keep up the good work , and please do not stop posting!

Re: Proton KR '06

Ok, I get your point. One thing I would like more of in your threads is some references to what you are trying to accomplish. Photos of the real thing followed by your interpretation. If you are lazy like me you can't hope for me to get the Pitwalk collection out every time I look at the threads. With that I would also be able to come with constructive critisism instead of just ohhs and ahhs. Remember that you are working on an arena where many of your viewers haven't even seen a KR bike.

best regards
Joel

Like me!!
Nice scratch building though! Those are some clean looking parts. I'll be keeping my eyes on this one for sure.

Hi geronimo77, It depends of the final result, if it is good it is possible to be for sale, but I hope not to have problems with the KR team, I ask they for a few photos and they asked me what I was going to do with the model...If it was for my personal use... I told them the truth and I get no reply.

Ok Joel you have reason, next time I will put pictures of the real bike to compare it, maybe this is what this thread needs.

Thank you mates!

Yes, I bought the machine from Micro Mark and well I'm sure they will not be like the quality of studio27 for example but I think they will be ok, I read on Internet and the instructions carefully but I still have to practise with it.

Re: Proton KR '06

Itīs stunning what you guys are able to do with putty and a few sheets of bare plastic. the reason I donīt post so many replys is: I didnīt show a single modell in the forum and until that changes I donīt think I have the rights to judge about anybody elses work. Thats my point of view. Anyway, Roca, donīt give up and go on like you did in the past, I think there are many modellers watching the threads without posting a reply. I think you do great and Iīm curios how the final result will turn out.
