I built this within the past year. It has CF decals and PE parts on it. I had a little trouble with some of the fairing decals otherwise it came out pretty good. Here's some shots which include WIP photos first:

Box art:


Here it is a little further along:











And finished but with the fairings off

I think you had help from "elves," after all, it has ELF written all over it! Clearly some magic going on in the build and paint. I'm sick with envy!

Looking close at the chain, did you drill out the pins?

No. It's just a PE chain that was made that way.

Don't try and kid me, that's a real bike, I take my hat off to you sir that, in my humble opinion is THE best model bike I have ever seen, I have seen some amazing bike builds that have blown my mind but this is on another level, what you have here is art.

I have never built one of those PE chains, not sure my super fat fingers could do it.

It's not a chain that's built link by link, its just two pieces sandwiched together. But the rear brake rotor in totally built up from PE and of course the sprockets are PE too. I do have another bike kit along with a Top Studio superkit that does come with a chain you do build link by link, but it also includes a regular PE chain that you don't need to assemble. I'll probably do it the hard way.
