Hi all here is the next victim to my bench I'm sure you all know me well enough to know it will be nothing like the box art.



Glued the tank halves together and made a start on the engine (detail is very crisp) but you need to cut the locating pins off as if you use them the parts dont align up very well (which is strange as once you've cut the pins off they align up perfectly)




Ken's the name modeling's the game.

Never gotten around to one of these myself Ken but its on my wants list.

I think these used to be produced under the old Esci brand and as a youngster i always wanted one but could never manage on pocket money in those days.

Kit looks to have stood the test of time well with some good looking detail on the parts.

Hope it all goes as planned.

Hi all more progress on this frame painted Ford squeeze green planing on doing the tank and panels yellow with white wheels, but that could all change.

Very nice paint job on the engine parts Ken.

Sounds like an interesting colour choice you have lined up for this one.

Another update, I decided not to go with white wheels and decided to go with the frame colour also added some of the cables and the carb (dont like the cables far too shiny need to dull them down some how) I really love how the spokes are moulded, some of the best I've ever seen.

Nice depth of colour on the yellow paint Ken.

What brand of yellow have you used?

Thanks guys.
Hi all work on the front forks, it's quite a complex system, bit like the dampers on older cars(did something similar on the mefistofeles)
