I'm new here, and would like to share my recently completed Tamiya RC166. The kit is a real pleasure to build. I used the four detail kits (wheels chain, fork and rivets), and made a couple of other enhancements. All the cross head screws have been replaced with hex bolts, or at least something that looks like a hex bolt. I also added a bit of braided hose on the oil coolers. The chain does work, as long as you turn the rear wheel very slowly. Any comments, criticisms or questions are welcomed.
Ok while having a long boring nightshift I have come up with an idea for a GB which could include almost everyone! A South Latin American GB Ok after lots of requests by everyone.....well Steve anyway, I had a think about this and decided to open it up to the rest of Latin America. This GB will now cover anything and everything South American "of the border", as long as it was used there or built there it’s ok. There should be a bit of something for everybody here with all forms of transport covered, both military and civilian, even the automotive crowd with Dakar bikes/cars/trucks So countries eligible; Argentina Bolivia Brazil Chile Colombia Costa Rica Cuba Dominican Republic Ecuador El Salvador Gaudeloupe Guatemala Guyana Haiti Honduras Mexico Nicaragua Panama Paraguay Peru Puerto Rico Suriname Uruguay Venezuela Plus French Guiana Falkland Islands Martinique Saint Barthelemy Saint Martin The are some amazing and interesting subjects available which you wouldn't normally see or think about.....so what do you think?

Well after starting these motorbike kits in February I've finally finished the last one. I bought the kits from a seller at the Yeovilton show for £15 each, they were part started but the work carried out was outstanding and most were limited to assembly of the frames and engines sub-assemblies.
