I was all weekend, Monday and today, with the printer "on" for 24 hours and I was able to finish printing all the pieces.
I'm happy with the overall result, on this particular model, I looked for a bit more printing speed, sacrificing a bit of quality on some parts, since I'm going to improve them with post-processing.

Here the assembly test, I had to sand some pieces and touch up some holes with the drill, but in general, everything fell into place without major problems.

Please do not look at the general chaos of my workshop ..

Looking very good so far. My worry are those long bars holding the fins at the front...sagging over time is a strong possibility. Are you going to replace them with metal tubing?

Hi Joberg
It was also my concern at the time of design, but I plan to solve it with two options, I will see in due course which one convinces me the most.

A) Place 2 supports, one under the engines as seen in the photo and the other, very thin so that it is more difficult to see, under the front wings
This is the one I like the least, but the easiest to carry out.

B) There is room to place a very thin steel wire that passes under the structure of the front wings and extends to the base of the supports, my idea is to tension it to support the front structure.

Beyond this concern, I must say that between the 3 supports, they hold the weight of the front structure very well. The question is whether they can do it over time.

I was able to finish smoothing the surface with sandpaper and putty, then 1 coat of primer and 1000 water-based sandpaper. Now I am ready for painting.
But first, I have to go through all the "wiring and tubes that are in the front.
As I do in most of my models, the pipes and wiring I do with scratch stuff because I don't like how those details are made with FDM printer.

This is how it looks after the primer coat and sanding.

Today, I was able to finish painting and make all the pipes that this model has in the front, for that I used 2 millimeter black wire.

The paints I use are:
AK Acrylics.

Humbrol

These are the results.

The model is still very flat, the next step will be to carry out the weathering.


I am very happy with the metallic effect that I achieved by combining AK Gun Metal and AK Aluminum, working with the dry brush technique.

Keeps looking better and better. You are moving really quick on this one. Great job so far.

Hi Hagoth.
Thanks for the message!!
Yes, two things come together, one, I am not working in person due to the pandemic, so I have plenty of time and two, the idea of having all the bikes of the Cloud Riders motivates me a lot.

I was able to finish with the weathering, I used browns and grays to make the burned effect of the engines. Use oils for dirt marks on surfaces, as well as for rusty parts, such as the front heat exchanger. I wanted to mix the materials a bit, so the general structure is aluminum, that's why the paint chips are that color and some pieces I decided to make as if they were steel or iron, such as the side components and the fasteners of the front supports. , that way those parts appear with rust.

Now the only thing missing is to give it a coat of matte varnish to protect and the model would be finished.

Some close-up shots to see the effects
I wanted to simulate that the surface of this piece was getting quite hot, so I gave it a burnt effect at the front

FAB job for sure: you`re a machine:cool::cool: Love the way you`re building your story concerning the ``wear and tear``i.e.; rust, oil, replaced pieces, etc.
Difficult with vehicles since they don`t stay in one place for a long period of time (drips going down on your model) and since they are traveling forward at great speeds, the drips are not horizontal on certain parts also ...difficult indeed, but your paint job is A+(y)(y)

Wow you made a stunning job of this! The weathering feels perfect. And to think you did it all yourself, manufactur and paint is even more astounding!

Cheers,
Josh

Thanks Joberg. Yes, in the end I decided to make the dirt stains in different shades of gray and mark them horizontally to reflect speed and the rust stains down, because they are clearly marks that form when the vehicle is stopped.

Many, many thanks, Starks for your kind words.
