It gets betterer and betterer Ken. It has a great patina of use without the weathering being overdone  :-))

The Grub screws do make it look more realistic, I salute your research.

Moving along now, still a long way to go though, but at least it's looking like a bike now.










Not happy with the oxygen sensor wires I think they're too thick, they're networking wires I don't have anything thinner, any suggestions.

That radiator upgrade is the real thing scaled down by the looks of it! Good to see you getting pictures up again Ken. The fairing and its mounting system again look superb. In that scale there is no place to hide where 'oopsies' are concerned and you do not need to  :-))

Hi Ken,  Just caught up with this build, if I didn't know what I was looking at I'd have said some one is building the full size bike  ok2 one thing's for sure with your customary extra flair for detail it will be far from standard, I'll be following with interest.  :-))

Hi all here is the next update I made a bit of an oops in duplicating the wiring of the rad fan which I had done the other end further back in the build will have to watch that in the future (especially as this build is using all my built up stocks of wire)

Ain't that the truth, thinking of the bikes I had back in the sixties, I'd do a decoke on a week end just for something to do, wouldn't even consider touching one of these new machines. %%

Yep theres a lot to be said for keeping things simple i rode bikes most of my life and with a few spanners and a set of points and plugs in my tool bag i always got home if i broke down nowadays you would need to add a fully equiped garage complete with computer diagnostics in your tool kit just to sort out a shorting ht lead.

Excellent job, total envy at your skill. Re breakdowns, yes you could fix things by the roadside, because you had to. Now they don't breakdown nearly as often.

Hi all here is an update where nothing has been done. It's just that since the front wheel is now on I can compare and show just what a beast this is these range in scale from the humongous Duc at 1/4 then the Katana at 1/6 the Kwak at 1/8 and the Yam at 1/12 these all have similar size engines so they're all about the same size in real life.

Hi all next update been adding the break lines and front mudguard then onto the electrical bits, it would be so much easier if I hadn't started adding detail, this is going to be the most intensive added details bit.










And the dreaded electric panel (this is just the beginning and only one side)

But then it's your customary extra detailing that makes all the difference, nice going Ken.  :-))

Hi all here is another update, all of the wiring here is added detail, none of it is supplied with the kit  it makes a big difference adding it. I still don't understand why they don't supply it as 90% of the connectors are moulded and even the missing ones are easy enough to scratch build .

The spanners on the floor make this shot even more realistic though I cannot imagine you being allowed to repair a motorbike in your lounge!

Could you please tell me what is the petrol capacity of the machine in real life size, as it seems that the engine gets bigger and the tank gets smaller, nemesis

Well I've spent 3 hrs trying to get the wing mirrors on this, I may never touch the bl$y kit again don't believe the YouTube video it's nigh on impossible. I've removed the windscreen to give me more room but still can't get them on, I really don't know how this is still in one piece.
