At last the parts have arrived and are the usual top quality BigGrin

Pack 1 Tank and badges.
Although the Dvd is in Japanese its well worth watching.
Pack 2 A lovely crafted wheel and cylinder head.
Pack 3 Nicely detailed clocks.
Pack 4 Handlebar and clamps.
And this is what they look like after assembly.
Although the needles are fiddly to fit the clocks go together well and look good.

Roll on next months parts BigGrin

You're so right AL! I have to say that I've been looking at this kit since it came out and the quality is simply jaw dropping. I'm getting really tempted! Drool Drool Drool

A very lovely looking kit. If only "the pockets were not so deep and full of hold" Crying I would be oh so tempted by this one.

Looked at the video the other day and thought how brilliant this one looks when complete.

Hope you get lots of fun from your build.

Happy Modelling

Thanks guys for looking in and the comments, much appreciated.BigGrin

These quarter scale bikes may be expensive but the detail and sheer size and weight of them make them an imposing model in any showcase.Love
Dare i say it but even better quality than Tamiya's 1/6 scale Blink

Pack 3 has arrived BigGrin

A look at the parts received
Headlamp goes together with no fuss and the chrome rim is locked in place with a slight clockwise twist.
A closer look at the headlamp and reflectors.
Next the caliper was push fitted together and the brake disc mounted on the wheel.
Fitting the mudguard was next and the instructions advised threading the holes prior to assembly and this is good advice as fitting the mounting bolts is a little fiddly.I added a touch of grease to the head of the Allen key to keep the screw on it.
Another view with a pound coin for comparison.

That completes this delivery and looking forward to next months BigGrin

Hi Al, BigGrin

I`m no bike nut, but do have an engineering background, including vehicle mechanics and that looks like a darn fine kit.

You`re doing a good job on this one,keep up the good work. Cool

Pack 4 arrived before xmas but only just got around to putting it togetherBigGrin

The parts unwrapped, nice chrome on the exhaust parts.
Parts joined together as per instructions with no problems.
A closer look at the carburettors, the linkages fit together nicely and are a nice touchCool

Thats it for a few weeks.
