The recipient of this Xmas gift has got to be well chuffed!!!
All the best
I told my dad I was going to save up and buy one.
"Not bloody likely, you'll kill yourself, forget it!"
Judging by my behavior when I aquired my first car from a scrap yard, he was probably right!
Since then I have had little interest in bikes, nor the desire to have a go at building a kit of one. But, following this superb build, watching it grow and the tricks with the various finishes and effects you so cleverly employ, I can feel my resistance crumbling with great rapidity!
thanks Graham , I used semi-gloss black followed by a light dusting of model master aluminum plate buffing metalizer,then I gave it a wash with promodeller black(thanks again for that tip) and finally a spray of dullcoat
Thanks Ron ,I too was hooked by the Jap bike invasion but it was a Z1R that got me. I think our Dads were on to something! I got the 'you can have a f*%#$ motorcycle when you move out 'speech(I did both promptly) I hope you jump on a bike build far too few being built here!
