1/12 Tamiya Suzuki GSX1100S Katana


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, here is the final reveal for the Katana. I decided to bling it up a bit and add a few blue eye candy items, not something I would do on my own bikes but this bike begs to be dressed up. Now that I have built the 1/12 scale kit, I fancy building the big 1/6 scale with the dark red candy and silver paint scheme. I hope you like the bike pictures and I look forward to any comments you have on this build. Finally, you can see my work in progress of this build in the link below.

Absolutely superb finish. I can see the clouds reflecting in the paint on the fuel tank.

Very nice, paint finish is superb :)

Brother in law has one of those in 12" to the foot scale

I nearly bought one then plumped for the GPZ900r instead, I've got the 1/12 scale Kat and Ninja in the stash to build one day

Very nice, always liked the look of the CBX, they were a huge bike  

I've got an '84 A1 900r that I have been getting round to tidying up and getting sprayed for the last few years, but never seem to make a start as I open the garage, see the ZRX1200r at the front and take that out instead :) 

I must admit that riding the brother in laws Kat is fairly uncomfortable as it's a real reach to the handlebars over the tank
