Harley Davidson in 1/9 Scale
The following pics were received a few days ago from Mr. Manuele Villa, from Italy. The model is a Dirt-Track Harley Davidson motorcycle. The original kit was Esci's 1/9 scale '46 HD 750 WLA-Military version. It has been converted to the dirt-tracker by Mr. Villa. Here are two pics of the model, plus a small description of the conversion:
