Model bike Sunday?

So, since its a weekly thing on the HAMB to do a model car post I figured I'd post some pics (albeit bad ones) of an old Linberg Triumph Tiger kit I did awhile ago.
I think the kit was from like '71 or '72 and I took the shrink wrap off.
Just like everything else, I didn't want to do it "stock" although it didn't take much to change it.
All I did was trim down the seat& exhaust, chrome foiled the front fender, then stuck it on the back & ommited some of the extra BS the kit came with.
In a true moment of geekness I even used the tail light from AMT's model A roadster kit.

Yes. I do spent too much time doing stupid things.

Sorry the pics are so crappy...I CAN NOT take a picture of a model to save my life.

Old HD model my sister built
Great patina on that one. Was that aged finish "modeled" in, or is that real aging from a model that's been around a while?

Here's mine which has had some sort of desktop collision.

Man, I know the "desk top collision" scenario all too well.
Great stuff though.
