"Crusader" Custom Chopper

by WeWillHold (Steve Keegan)

 This is Revell's Custom Chopper "Crusader" kit (1/12 scale)

Image 

The kit parts come in white and polished chrome plastic, along with a couple of options for the modeler to choose from including two types of gas tanks, different exhaust options, rims for the wheels, and two different decal selections.  The kit builds easily and the part fit is quite good for a kit that retails for under $15.00.
 
For this particular build, the fenders and gas tank are under coated in brass flake oversprayed with a translucent green to allow for the gold to show through.   For color contrast and visual interest, the frame is painted in the green only.  The chrome exhaust pipes are stripped and painted flat black.  I ruined the kit provided oil bag, and replaced it with a flat black external fuel tank from a 1/35th T-34 Russian tank.  It fit like a glove (smile).  In addition, the front of the frame was modified by adding Evergreen plastic tubing, and the kit provided primary cover was sanded smooth, painted, and decaled for a bit of variety.
 
For the cost, these Revell kits are excellent entry level pieces for the beginning bike builder ---- plus they're fun!!!  Can't ask for anything more than that :-)
