  1. Manufacturer: Nagano Aftermarket: None used Paints: Mr Hobby 1500 black primer, AK Gloss Varnish, Mr Color super metallic 2 super iron 2, Zero paints Titanium silver, Tamiya clears, 2K clear coat, Molotow liquid chrome Weathering: Mig Ammo 1203 Streaking Grime wash Link to build: Hi all, here is the finished Honda Goldwing 70's bike build. I had painted a Honda CB750KO full size bike for a client last year and I had enough paint left over to easily paint the model as it was the same colour used. I did a bit of scratch building to fill in some details that were missing from the kit, mainly the carburettor linkages and coolant expansion tank drain pipes. I used fibre optic strand to make the clear plastic tubing. Also I added the manual choke cable knob that's fixed to the handle bar bracket, and added the black plate that sits between the back of the radiator and carburettors. Lots of hand painting was applied to the switch gear to give the impression of lettering, I think at this scale those details are required. It's a long out of production kit that was showing its age, lots of flash in places and some crude engineering on some parts, but on others they looked very good indeed. Finally, I added some photos of my real bike as comparison. Real bike comparison photos:
  2. The original GL1000 Goldwing was the world's biggest and heaviest bike when it was introduced in 1975. Most notable for its unique water-cooled flat-four engine, the GL also featured shaft drive, twin front disc brakes and an under-seat fuel tank. The Wing produced 80bhp, had a top speed of 120 mph (193 kph), and accelerated hard despite 571lb (260kg) weight. Its smoothness and comfort rapidly won a large following, especially among the middle-aged Americans. Along with the kit photos that have not been started yet, I have included pictures of one of my own 1975 bikes that I restored in 2018.
