Very well then. With the Hillclimber done its time for an easy one. This is of course Tamiyas latest (yawn) 1/6 offering ,Harley - Davidson's Fat Boy Lo . The hardest parts of this kit are the re-creating of the cnc machined edge of the cylinder and head castings. and the painting of the wheel centers. The rest looks dead easy as long as you have a light touch with the wrench's and screwdriver provided. Of course painting skills will be on point as well as there is a lot of 'sheet metal' to color. Mine will be what we would call a: 'very mildly customized stocker.' I will follow color call outs for the most part , for the main parts , and throw some chrome and color onto parts that would be normally black, as if there aint enough of it already. FBlo's of the year depicted came in one color (orange) and 2 shades of black , gloss and flat. I got an orange model already , so changing up I am going with either blue or red , either to be candy over a silver base. Fb's nver had much for extra artwork , usually just a base color and some diff color splash's here and there and proprietary enameled tank badges. We'll try the 'hero' method on the finning , no masks , spray one way , then the other, you'll see. Also a set of masks will be developed for the wheel masking although it looks to be a hand -bomb job , masks perhaps adding to the work. So some pics: Three bags full , one for flat black , one for gloss black and chrome , and the color bag: Been perusing the instructions for a few years now, assy is much like a real bike , after paint I forsee an enjoyable bit of work.
