  1. Hi all, here are the final pictures for the H1. It is not a shake and bake kit and far from perfect but it will be sitting on the shelf next to its bigger brother the H2 750. Thanks for looking in on this 70's "snap crackle and pop" classic bike.
  2. Hi all, here we go again, this is another old kit I picked up last year. It should be a very accurate and hopefully an enjoyable build, Heller makes some great bike kits. I am going to paint it in the factory pearl candy orange and airbrush the tank stripes on, as the decals are not in the correct colours. So, let's get started!

  4. Barn Find This big old highly sort after 1979 KZ1000 Z1R has recently been imported from North America, we cannot confirm the mileage. As you can see the bike appears to be largely complete, missing the side panel badges. But now for the good news, the wheels are straight, switches look ok, fuel tank is clean inside, the 4 into 1 exhaust is solid but rusty, we have had it firing/running on easy start spray but the fuel system and carbs will need attention, so get bidding this one could be yours! Hi all, sorry for not posting any build updates but this kit wa

  6. Hi all, I have pulled another old 1/8 70's bike kit from the stash, it was produced around the same time as the Honda CBX. Basically, a refresh of an old model line, new bodywork and a cafe racer look. It was not liked by everyone; some found the lines too angular, after the old rounded look of the original Z1's. I liked the look of the black engine and ice blue silver paint job. I've also added a photo of some paintwork, when I worked on the real bike a few years ago. Zero Paints have the correct colour for this bike, so it should be another fun buil

  8. So, something new for me. After numerous planes, armor, cars and a ship I was wondering what to do next. After a quick look around the internet this caught my eye...........never tried a bike before so I figure now was the time to try. Ordered yesterday from Jadlam, came this morning via the postie (though I did pay for 24hr delivery as had nothing else to do and was getting withdrawal symptoms!). Let battle commence.

  11. Hi all After the Mig 25, I choosed to exist of my stach a different subject. This time, I decided to go to Japan and build the beautifull Ki-61 Hien Tamiya kit. Like all Tamlya kit, it is very well engenired. The try fit show me that it is possible to not glu the wing before the paint. I decided to assemble and paint the fuselage and the wing seperatly and assemble them after the paint. My build start with the cockpit. It is very well detailled and it not need some adds I use the H66 GUnze paint and add a little weathering.
  12. A quick build on this one, it’s only taken about a month 1:12 scale. Paints mostly Tamiya, a bit of Revell & the metallic black is by Vallejo. Built straight OOB, like most Tamiya kits it’s pretty straight forward, kind of builds itself really

  17. Hi all, this is the final reveal of the 1972 Kawasaki 750 H2. This was the most powerful and unpredictable bike to own in that era and carved out a reputation for itself as a bit of a Hooligan. To emphasize the character of the bike I decided to ditch the centre stand, as any hard rider would find it a limitation in the ground clearance. Also I have scraped the chrome on the underside of the exhausts, which was a common occurrence when leaning this bike over into bends. As a final detail I wanted to show the oil tank gauge indicator which was basically a clear tube that exited and
  18. Hi all, happy to say I have pretty much bashed this bike into a Z900A4, Heller made a great job of the details of the Z1000 kit, just some of the engineering let it down. For example, the rear grab rail was perfect but it was split into two halves and the join seam was in the centre over the tail unit that would've been tricky to hide with a chrome finish. The 750 kit had a fully molded rail, but where it bolted to the side of the bike, it was missing the indicator mounts, so I cut off the one piece rail and I glued it to the Heller kit side rails, this worked out pretty good in t
  19. Hi guys, well yet again here is another 70's Kawasaki. Going to paint it in Candy Gold Metal Flake, should be very psychedelic. I have made a start this morning. Also the kit came with this cool poster of a different bike called the Kawasaki H1 500, check out those groovy boots!
  20. Hi all, here is the start of another 70's classic superbike build. The Kawasaki Z900A4 or KZ900 in the US. This is going to be a kitbash of sorts as this kit is not available. I bought two kits which I will take parts from to build the Z900A4. Don't fret! I have a plan for a workshop diorama in the future, for the leftover parts. As you can see I have made a start on the bodywork, the paint colour is diamond dark green. I used the Z1000 decals for the side panels and cut them and painted in the number 9. There was some subtle differences between the Z1000 and the Z750 which eventua

  24. I bought this kit last year however looking at the exhaust downpipes, the way they were attached to the sprue gate it was obvious that the chrome finish would be ruined. So I decided to wait until I could get hold of some Alclad chrome. I have never used Alclad before and so I had to experiment a few times to get a decent finish, also the petrol cap had been plated with a silver aluminium type finish instead of chrome, so I had to redo that with Alclad as well and also the rear grab rail. The wheels had chrome rims which were ok but also had the spokes chromed which was wrong for the look of t
