Oh yeah, my other favorite racing car was the Ford GT40. Here is a 1/8 scale model by DeAgostini...very tempting, but very pricey!
Hi Peter,Before I get started with the next chapter, I had to make 3 banjo plugs for the 3 brake shoes. To replace the plastic ones.

-flatten chrome ball with hole on both sides;
-drill hole for the brake line;
-1 mm copper wire brake line;
-the hose clamp for the brake line already put on, of 2.5 mm copper tube;
-hexa bolt from a former Pocher kit through the hole.
On both brake shoes for the front brake:

With the result:

The brake line can be put a little further on it. And a tip of paint on the hex-bolt/banjo.
Thanks Stephen.Hi Peter,
Great to see progress once more.
Great work love the banjo fittings, I hope you bled the brakes after fitting the hoses.
Thanxs Ted, here it comes:Nice to see more progress on the bike - keep it coming!
Excellent build log - That is one heck of a superb kit - I knew Pocher from their cars - didn't know that they were still creating new kits - You're doing
a great build....
John, what a beautiful story!Wow!!!,
My Admiral is Brazilian - met her there years ago when I was going back and forth a lot, we became close - Been together forever.
BUT we had a mutual friend, living in Marina del Rey CA, who knew him very well. He happened to be in Los Angeles when I was alo in LA; the three of spent a great evening with him. Charming, and funny - Though when he won the Indy 500 fans, and the press were a bit more than upset (Milk vs Orange juice)
I may just have to get that kit when it is released. Thanks for the head's up - missed that going through your log
