  1. 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
  2. This is my lockdown project. I know nothing about motorcycles in real life but I'm really enjoying building this so much detail. Only done the engine so far but really detailed and satisfying
  3. Well, I'm going to make a start. The kids are going away for a week - it may be my only chance! I'm adding the Top Studio Detail-Up and Chain sets, as well as the Tamiya Front Fork Set. I think I'll keep the Hobby Design set for another build. I planning to use white for the main colour, more than that, I'm still undecided. Cheers, Andrew
  4. I'll start with some eye candy! This is what I hope to end up with when finished. I'll not hold back on the polish and bling so if you were hoping for something "rode hard and put away wet" this isn't that thread. This is what the box looks like. The MFH sister-site "Barchetta" has documented everything included in the kit here: http://www.club-barchetta.com/SHOP/K485.html Wish me luck. I'll need it.
  5. Hi all,   Would anyone happen to know if any of the three JPS Norton racebikes exist in kit form? I've trawled through Google, etc. with no luck.   All the best.
  6. My uncle asked me to do take a crack at this kit for him after I built an Iron Patriot for my cousin. First time I've worked with a motorcycle kit. Fairly simple, but my word I wish Tamiya didn't chrome plate the parts >< Without further ado, here it be Gaz
  7. Larger image Not really an armoured fighting vehicle, but I guess it goes in this section. This is the Italeri 1/9th scale Triumph 3HW of World War 2. Building this kit taught me something that I sort of knew already and I find it a bit disturbing. It is that there was something radically primitive about the engineering design of motorcycles of this era. (Even my first trials bike, a 250cc Greaves of the 1960s, incorporated design elements that no rational mind would include on a trials bike.) It is not just that this or that component shows signs of being added as an a
  8. Well that was a cure for modellers block! This was a really fun build that took me back to my childhood when i used to build the tamiya bike kits and then my youth when i used to strip and rebuild my motorcycles. I have had so much fun i have bought some other bike kits. Kit was an easy build and considering its age still has so much detail in it and looks great. Right Ducati 916 next!
  9. I recently got a GREAT deal on this kit and just couldn't pass it up. The reason is that this is quite a rare kit. This one isn't even listed on the Tamiya web site. This is due to some sort of a copyright infringement that was brought by AMF when they owned Harley-Davidson. However, this particular kit appears to have been re-branded as their "Police Special" motorcycle leaving the AMF off of the packaging. Even the instruction sheet is quite dated. But, since this IS the thread for posting completed models I won't delve into the construction asp
  10. While searching for a release date for this kit I discovered that it is not listed any longer on the Tamiya web site. Also, I discovered that there is little information out there. I also found that, unlike models today, there is no bar code on the box. So I looked up the history of those. Going by that information that would put this model at 1980 or earlier as bar codes weren’t used regularly until after that. I give you photos of the sides of the box for reference. I did find out from someone that this particular model was removed from the shelves because, at the time, there was som
  11. Hello again, this is my Suzuki Katana custom I built last year. It was a lovely model to assemble and a great price, highly recommended. All done with hairy sticks and Humbrol enamel. Thanks for looking and any feedback would be appreciated, regards Siffo.
  12. Just browsing Hannants and came across this: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/IT4602 Andrew
  13. Tamiya have finally decided to re-release a number of 1/12 motocrossers for November 2014: Honda CR450R w/Rider Honda CR250R Suzuki RM250 More than likely they will be straight re-releases with modern quality decals, not that that's a problem... The days of paying £45 to £90 for one on flea bay will soon come to an end. YES, YES, YES!

  16. Hi Everyone, Here is my 3rd completed build of the weekend. It is the Tamiya 1/12 Kawasaki ZX-14 Ninja Special Edition. Painted by hand with Tamiya X-1 Black and X-7 Red. The decals went a lot better with this than my Hayabusa build. Anyway here are the photos. Look out for another bike build in the future, maybe even the alternate colour scheme ZX-14. ATB, Rick
  17. Hi Everyone, Here is my 1st completed build of 2015. Tamiya 1/12 scale Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa 99-07 model. This kit has been painted in Tamiya X-4 Blue, black, gold and silver plus a bit of flat aluminium. Anyway here are the photos. Thanks for looking. Rick
  18. After the rather nice news (to me anyway) of Tamiya's new tool 1/72 F-16CJ, I decided to have a gander at what else might be coming. To my utmost surprise, I found this solitary image off a built up Ducati 1199 Panigale. Clearly a quick build 'test shot' but it does tie in with previous rumours of an impending Ducati release... This image was found on this blog http://tamiyablog.com/category/future-releases/ with the 1199 being the first image on the seventh row down. Apart from being photographed at this years Nuremberg Toy Fair, no scale or other identifying text can be found on this unoffi
  19. Hi This is a conversion of the Revell CB750 kit to a CB750KZ and is the first motorcycle conversion that I have attempted. I used to own one when I was younger and it was my pride and joy but, alas, I sold it so that I could get married (yep, it was worth it - but I kept all my gear just in case). It is not perfect by any means but gave me ideas for when I have another go at some point. Those in the know will notice that the real one had twin exhausts each side but I was not clever enough to attempt scratch building those yet. And, for a change, I did not add any lights...........
