Since Maisto won't/hasn't made one, I decided to make one while I wait to finish a couple of Vettes. I have not printed the HD decals and some of the differences between the V-rod and Night-rod were not done as I did not have the parts for it yet.

Now you just have to figure out how to add the fairing that seems to come standard with this bike, Al!  Time for some custom mod!!

Thanks guys!  :cheers You are right Ric, this will be v1.0 :giggle I may do a v2.0 with a correct head light, flaring and some cabling.
These V-rods were nowhere to be found locally, but I found a KBT that had loads of them.

I saw that, but I wonder if they are optional?  :confused The 1:1 that I have seen did not have them.

Good question.  They are probably added to make the bike go faster.  :giggle

Why have I never seen the 1:1 before? That looks incredible (both the 1:1 and your custom)! Would it warrant a kill sticker if I were to black out my Maisto V-rod?

Al,

Did you use a brush or can for the paint?

I had an old rattle can of flat black. I shot some clear over.
