Wow - it looks beautiful. So bright and shiny.

I am so tempted by a bike build but with everything possible coming, or being tested its stopped me in my tracks in case i sign up to something only to find something even better just around the corner Confused

Must admit of the present bike builds this is the model that i think is the best of the best.

Hope the rest of your build goes well.
Happy Modelling

BigGrin Looks great just a word of caution do not use the lubricating grease on the tyres but use some silicon oil spray insteadCool

Thank you. I don't use anything on the tyres but I will follow your caution if I will lubricate the tyres. The only thing I did is cleared the tyre with soap and water.

BigGrin If your happy with the color of the tyres as delivered then no need to touch them but if your not happy with the greyish/black finish as delivered then the silicon oil will revert them to a fresh black rubber look. Your choice of course.

One other word of caution the key is a push in and pull out only on the bike below the fuel tank to turn the electrics on and off.

The key [large one] provided for the base is a turn key as for a normal type lockCool

Hello everyone...
Very sad week for me... No possible building this weekend.
I hope building something next week...
Sorry for the Delay...
I will only post some photos and some tips. The building process is the same as the others builders. I want to help new builders to have an easier way to finish the model.
See you soon.

Well your build is coming along a real treat.

Very surprised by the weight of the parts but I guess the materials used are the best possible to get the finishes they have used. Those exhaust sections look stunning.

I thought I had narrowed down by next model between 2 but having seen this one again having to re-think.

Hope you manage to get back to your build soon.
Happy Modelling

Hello!!!
Building up to issue 61 :
Some paint scratchs in the frame because of the shock absorbers building.
A small paint work and all will be fine again...






See you soon!!!

Looking very nice indeed.

For me its my favourite model of the various bike kits presently on offer. The red and chrome looks wonderful.
