Well I have been busy on this but not all the time, with the weather we've been having it's been too nice to sit in the house building models. With me doing it as a scrap yard diorama, I've been having to build and weather each part before it goes together in the sub sections and over all build So heres a few pictures of what I've been doing still plenty of work before they go together
This is looking really good I agree with paul the seat looks great and will be a nice touch when it all come together and the talc idea will be something I have to try myself at some point good luck with the rest of it
Hi Ian, Fantastic work ........... The Tank and exhausts look absolutely superb....... The corrosion on the exhausts looks 100% lifelike............ And bent forks as well "Spot on"
Mudguards ???? It'll depend on the year.......... Pretty much up until mid 80's the Japanese were still bashing them out in steel........... But seeing as your bike has the "Comstar" wheels, and the shape of the mudguard I'd say it's probably would be plastic.......... Most of them were Polycarbonate and busted up a treat with a front-ender, generally you found them busted on one side where the mounting holes are, as the front end impact sort of pushed it off to one side. The rear mudguard will be black plastic as well.
