Interested to see what you make of this one Paul, I enjoyed it a lot....and I did it in silver as well....I found the decals a little hard to use, not coming off the backing paper cleanly, but the rest fitted fine.....
Cheers
Tim

Nice bike to do, Paul I've do the other version, off this just the CB750F which is not custom tuned. Just be carefull off the small screws. What I done was put them in a shot glass, so I did not loose them same with the tubing, so I know where they were. Enjoy building it. I'll pop in every so often to see how, your getting on

Hi Paul
I have never built one of these large scale motor bikes but I have seen a few completed. They make stunning models. I look forward to seeing how you get on.

Paul,
do you just push on the vinyl tubes, or glue them? I've done models that will sit happily for weeks, then, the brake/spark plug/speedo lines all seem to fall off!

and finished

strangely for a tamiya kit the decals were dreadful, just wanted to break up as soon as water touched them, let alone the microsol!.........but i did the standard version of this kit a few years ago and found what was left over from that one in the spares box

more pics in the finished thread

Good job Paul. Funnily enough, when I did mine I found that the decals wouldn’t come off the backing paper. The tank ones, for example were floating free, except where they were welded to the paper. I had a couple of splits in mine as well....I thought they let the kit down as well.
