Pulled this one out of the stalled pile in hopes of actually getting it done this time 'round. This build goes back to 2whls group build for HONDA RC211V's. First bike since I got back into "building" and joined eScale 5yrs ago.

I took artisitc liberty and painted the frame with Tamiya clear orange, the silver always looked out of place as did the fluorescent orange wheels. So I did the wheels in a mixture of my own colour mixed up from Tamiya orange and red. The chain still needs more work.

The following picture shows the mistake I made. I glued the rear seat section to the actual seat area in the wrong sequence. It should have come together after the front section was on and the exhaust was installed. So to get around this I cut out a section of the seat exhaust cover. I'll reattach it later.

That's it for now. Still need to mask and paint the blue on the seat, and do the decals.

Thanks Geezerman.

The build is stalled at the moment. The yellow which is Testors rattle can from the  Body's line  has reacted to the blue lacquer. The yellow cracked, and started to bleed through the blue. It was actually a pretty neat looking effect. So it's been sanded down and I'll redo it soon.

It's looking good Curt. Shame about the broken chain but it looks like an easy fix.

He he,  the chain isn't broken Al. That's how Tamiya does all of their chains. It's done that way so you can install them, the "broken" bit sits behind the swing arm and can't be seen once assembled.
