Hi all,


This is my entry for the bike GB


I will be putting my own stamp on this build with the paintwork, other wise the kit will be more or less box stock.


I hope you will enjoy my build although it will be a short build!

Got started on this kit this afternoon and got all the sprue cleaned and now all in primer


View attachment 119504



Ive have stripped of the chrome on the wheels as they were to false looking


View attachment 119505



Next ive given the tires a good sand round to give them a orn look but also they had a very broad seal line which had to be removed.

Wheel have been painted using chrome spray and tires now fitted with the end result :smiling3:

Hi all another quick update


View attachment 121264



Using some nail art beads i have tried to give a studded look to the side of the seat as it looked plain i have attached them with a dab of super glue and then used a silver sharpie for quickness.


Should have alot more done by this afternoon/evening so keep your eyes peeled!


Cheers,Ben

Hi all well last the last 2 days i have just worked on this when ive had time and this is what i have now..... View attachment 121577

View attachment 121581



As you can see the the bike is all put together wired etc.. I replaced the rear carrier for the takegawa option part as this one looks more realistic and blends in better.The engine has has a black wash where necessary to knock back the chrome to give it a used look.


I will be making a base today for this so watch this space!


Cheers,Ben
