Re: JON1482 Pilot bike replica project

A shot I took from the front:

The experience was more than can be easily put into words. Jon did a fantastic job on the bike, and meeting and then hanging out with Rex was a truly surreal experience. Two days worth of memories that will last a lifetime.

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

AMAZING LOOKING PARTS! It's coming together very well. I hope you allow the rest of us to live vicariously through you, and post some video of yourself riding it. Actually, I'd love to eventually get some footage of me on the bike to splice in to the pilot to create extended versions of the scenes ...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

What is that black bracket and round reflector on the left strut? That is not stock and some shots of the bike doesn't have this bracket. It looks like some sort of wheel lock they added after the bikes were finished, and maybe were too lazy to remove for the photo shoot. Aren't the 2 pipes the exh...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

Do you have any pictures of what the grill looks like in the center section of the airfoil or was there not one? I can't find any pictures that reflects this detail in any detail..... :? I know on the series bikes, they had a piece of alum with slots cut into it. There was no aluminum shield/grill ...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

NOTE: Major update on 10/24/18 began on previous page. At SOME point in the future, I will probably make an upgraded version of the lower cowling with inset, opening air foil doors. This would require making a normal cowling first, cutting out the door openings, remolding the entire sides a second ...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

The actual part was made in the same way I've made the others, using epoxy resin and hand-laid fiberglass cloth, pre-cut to several patterns to match the surface shapes of the parts. I didn't take any pics of the pattern-making process or making the actual part. That's the tedious and boring part. I...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

After the surfacing of the buck/plug was finished, it was time to mold. Proper positioning was determined and the sculpture was mounted to a base board, with wood sheets and clay used to fill voids: https://i.postimg.cc/nr0gpj8v/11a-Mounted.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/660DdS7y/11b-Mounted.jpg Then I ca...
