Well the bad weather didn't ease up so i decided to take this lot indoors.
Used the 21mp camera on the mobile (cell) phone as it has better white balance than the Samsung bridge i use normally, also i used a reptile (UV a+b) tube to light the cream card backing ... all in the attempt to get the purple the right (ish) shade

here you go .... comments insults and criticism welcome as per usual.

Colin this is definitely the nicest looking and cleanest Cherry Bomb I've seen. Both seats are nicely detailed, the paint scheme is beautiful, you have done a lot of small things right to make this stand out and the glass is very clear to showcase the interior. The only thing I noticed is on pic #7 the right front wheel is a bit open, hopefully it's something you can fix or might already have. Gorgeous build all around!

Thanks guys.

Denis, wheel alignment fixed, they were tight enough to just press on so there's adjustment available.

Well now Viper boy you really made a top notch job on this one.

The colour is gorgeous and well laid down but the faded stripes really set it apart from all other Cherry Bombs I have seen.

Awesome! I don't know if you enter contests or not but that's the sort of thing I hate missing and it's those small details that can make the difference between placing or not.

I really dig this, it sure came together nicely. Your detail on the engine and colours work really well with the paint.

Agree with the best looking Cherry Bomb. I really like the paint scheme and the bike is awesome!
