Why have they done a Harley and not an Indian ?? Do they not realise the Harley will just fall to pieces within 2 years

We've already 3Dprinted prototypes of the Harley Davidson Flathead motorcycle used by the Spanish Republic, at 1:100 and 1:72 scales altogether – and have even resin-cast a handful of both, for the rider sculptors to have samples at hand. Please view what they look like:

3D prints

As for its smaller version, we are now in the process of prospecting a well-known British company to reach some kind of agreement or joint venture production, on the basis that Minairons would furnish the bike prototypes while the other brand would provide for riders. If such agreement was met, bikes and riders would then be cast as a single piece, accordingly to the usual practice of that brand.

First castings

Otherwise, riders for its 1:72 version would be cast separately by one of our usual sculptors (Xan or Angel Terol), depending on each one's availability and agenda. Bike itself might be cast as resin or white-metal in this case.
