Really looking forward to this one. BigGrin

Not a bike nut myself, but this is a great and fitting tribute to a name of my youth. Cool

I have made a start!Blink LOL BigGrin
The frame has been assembled, this will get some fine tuning once it has properly dried, and I have assembled the Mike Hailwood figure, I have stood him with my 1:12 scale Ducati to give an idea of size, the honda is a lot smaller. BigGrin

The frame has had the seams filed and sanded, and then a white coat of primer as this shows any marks that need attention really well. Once dried the frame will be sanded with micromesh until I am happy with it, then a coat of black primer and a gloss black top coat.BigGrin

Well I have been going through my kits and found half a dozen that need finishing, this being one of them. I was not happy with the paint on the frame so I stripped it back and did it again. Very pleased with it this time round!BigGrin
