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

Flippin' eck Ian .... I'm not giving you any more ideas if you manage that level of authenticity.

My attempts at talc didn't come out that good, nice one mate.

Got to agree with Aaron the seat looks brilliant.

Wow. I swear I've seen a dispatch rider in London on a bike which looked just like that.

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.
