TESTORS 1/9 Scale Heritage Softail

November 10, 2015 in Automotive

Here’s another recently completed motorcycle. The 1/9 Scale Testors Heritage Softail. I got this one soon after finishing the IMEX Heritage. I expected things to be a bit different but that wasn’t to be the case. This model is EXACTLY the same kit. By that I mean it’s EXACTLY the same right down to the instructions sheet and the decals. So I thought I would do things just a LITTLE different to make it stand out against the IMEX model.

Once again I went with a matching frame. This time in a Metallic Candy Red. This was applied over a base coat of Flat Black primer. I have to put more coats of the candy color over the flat black to cover but it gives a much richer end result.

The saddlebags were done in a flat black with a gloss coat applied after all the rivets were added. Once again the “leather” fringe is nothing more than a standard piece of paper.

Engine has been detailed in almost the same way as the IMEX save for a few, minor, cosmetic changes that I made. It was then mounted into the frame after numerous test fittings to make sure it would fit correctly.

And here is the end result. A very nice build with the results being a metallic red Softail that has garnered a place among my quality builds.

  1. Arguably, a better result than the Imex, but it may be that the red and black combination is so striking, in comparison.

    Nice job (again).

  2. Just a Harley Harry.
    Another fine build mate.

  3. So….I wonder which came first – the chicken (IMEX) or the egg (Testors) ? 🙂

  4. Beautiful build and a great looking bike.
