update on the exhaust, finally happy. Lol about time haha

Yeah, I'd be very happy with that mate. I agree it's an improvement on v1. 0 (though that was effective too, I thought).

spacer.pngkeen eyed people will notice the bottom of the forks and how I've moded them(is in previous pics) getting so close to the finish line with what has to be my favourite build. Not hard work if you love what you are doing and you have good people giving nice advice (thanks my friends) I've really enjoyed looking into it and changed my mind mid way because all I've seen are the norm white ones. Bob hurricane Hanna didn't ride this year of bike cc wise but it wouldn't stop some body making a replica as ive seen in photos so I think that gives me license to do so in this  build. 

Thanks again

The number 71 was my old race number by the way

So basically it's your replica of Hanna's bike ridden by a 1/6 scale you! 😂

Excellent model, so realistic, sometimes I think it must almost be harder to work in larger scales and replicate the original. You've nailed it though!

I'm well impressed.

 

If you ever get the chance to see the work of a guy called Peter Buckingham;  he has the same sort of interests as you but does more vintage stuff you will not be disappointed. I think you can see his work on face book rather than on here.

spacer.pngso I finally got the Yamaha decals from Studio27, worth the wait because I feel it just makes it. Got lucky with my paint work "size wise". I am over the moon how it has turned out I must admit. Thanks again for tips and great support my friends. Will finish and post completed model as soon as possible cheers

spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngso only a couple more decals to make, sort the tires out(clean up mould split line) and make the plinth or diorama base and jobs a done. I've been scratching my head about the plinth or diorama setting so any ideas are very much appreciated and can you see anything I may have missed or can change my friends. Many thanks
