Tamiya 1/12 Honda NSR500

Recommended Posts

So this was my first ever bike build, and must admit I was really looking forward to it.

But things didnt start well, the paint I was using which was a Halfords Automotive rattle can, just didnt sit well and so I had to strip, sand and start again....I later discovered I hadnt shaken the can well enough.

 

So I decided to pack the kit away, as I had a few other builds and come back to it later.

 

And after a few weeks I picked the kit up again, and it just all fell together. I had a couple of issues with the decals, but nothing a bit of touch up paint would clear up.

 

I ended up absolutely loving this build, and really pleased with the end result, so much so I have just brought another couple of bike builds.

 

Anyway I hope you enjoy.

Very nice work. I've built a couple of bike kits and agree with you they look great when finished

Lovely build my friend, if you airbrush don't forget you can decant from the cans and get much better feeling for how much paint and how it's going to react or look as you are spraying

Front brakes are beautiful as well as the sprocket/chain assembly.  REALLY clean.
