    Hi all well as some light relief I'm going to build this, obviously me being me it will look nothing like the box art and will be built  as relief from my other builds as and when I feel the need for a break, so build progress will be sporadic, trust me though I don't think it will be recognised as what it is when finished.

    Hi all here is the next update, I've lengthened the rear swingarm, quite pleased with it.


    Also dechromed the engine and sprayed it black, lots of weathering to do on this one, going to be quite a challenge as I don't normally do desert weathering.

    Hi all well I've weathered the engine and swing arm, I'm quite pleased with it as I've not done desert weathering before, needs a bit more depth but I think it's a good starting place.
