  1. Good afternoon All, here's my latest off the bench. This has been an on again - off again build over the last 18 months or so. The Tamiya motorcycle kits are well known to those who have built them as superbly engineered and just about perfect fitting models, but they take patience and the painting can be fiddly. At various points in the build I found myself distracted by other models (Squirrel!!!) and at other points I found myself lacking the confidence to try new things, like painting the bodywork. If you want some great tips on painting bodywork and getting a high shine look no further
  2. 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
  3. Background A couple of years ago, inspired by the pictures I saw of others’ efforts, including some on this site, I decided to try my hand at modeling again. The last time I tried was so long ago that cyanoacrylate glues probably hadn’t been invented and acrylic paints weren’t widely used. Tamiya was just beginning to market some 1/12 scale kits, and, fortunate to have parents who indulged me, I built a Lotus 49 and Honda. It was certainly long before the arrival of the internet. The Lotus 49 in Gold Leaf livery always appealed to me. Chapman’s chassis/engine combination
  4. Hello everyone, I have started this kit 6 months ago. I used Hobbydesign's detail set and Tamiya's front fork set along the kit. Tamiya's panigale kit is very nice, not for beginners probably but the kit comes along nicely, although there are a few subassamblies that can drive you nuts:) Especially the tail and side cowlings fit are not that good. Both detail sets are amazing. Front fork set is a great addition, it is very easy to assemble and saves your from a lot of painful mask and paintwork. But the hobbydesign set is a little difficult, especially the chain set and exhaust pipe requi
  5. I actually started this a few months ago, but it's been languishing in the pile of shame for a while now. However, seeing as my dad had one of these before he progressed to a Harley, and his birthday is coming up in just over a month, I've decided I'm going to finish this one off and present it to him. Along with the earlier assembly of the frame and stripping of the chrome, I've made a start on the engine, and given the ex-chrome plated parts a nice coat of alclad black base. I also filled the awful line that owes its thanks to the two part fuel tank. The fuel tank and side panels h
  6. Well, she's finished!! See what you think & let me know. Always good to hear feedback from your piers. She was sprayed using Halfords Vauxhall 'Diamond Black' as a body colour. Alclad II ALC-101 Aluminium for the swing arm & Humbrol Chrome Silver 191 for the exhausts & poilished up using Tamiya TS-13 Clear varnish.
