Gift horse Carlos Checa '04 Yamaha M1 YZR
Cuppa_joe posted a topic in Work In Progress - VehiclesHi all, been a while since I have been on here, moved house, rebuilt my motorcycle, started 2 more to build, started a business building said motorcycles, and yet to finish the last 2 WIP's : Aussie sabre and reppu "Sam" both 1/72 fighter planes. I'm doing this build as a gift to my missus father who i have yet to meet overseas. Kind of a break the ice type gift. He's a massive Yamaha fan, and a motorcycle mechanic himself so i thought this would be fitting. I initially wanted to do a 50th anniversary, or failing that a Rossi version but the prices!!! So this was the other option, and as well as the kit i all upspeced it with a Tamiya detail up kit for the forks and a Top Studio resin kit. My first resin kit i have used so bear with me. This being a gift, i have 4 months to build it so unlike my previous 2 builds, this one NEEDS to be done. Started with the engine, normal Tamiya step one https://www.flickr.com/photos/191561787@N07/51752151409/in/dateposted-public Test fitted the exhaust to allow for the oxygen sensors fitted This is Mandatory as the alignment is very important to not fowl on anything
