Honda NSR 500 1986 (Tamiya 1/12)


Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I want to show my latest bike build. It is the Honda NSR 500 in the Rothmans livery, as ridden by Wayne Gardner in 1986.

The kit is from Tamiya, with aftermarket decals by Studio27 and muffler springs by Top Studio.

It was also a nostalgia build, since this was my first bike model back as teenager in 1988.

 

The WIP is here:

Great work. 👍

 

Especially good that you seem to have avoided any bleed through on the yellow number boards. I was scared of painting too short so decided to err on the side of caution and go a little over my estimated measurements - resulting in small darker patches at the end of the boards. Kudos to you for getting that right!

I thought about painting the number boards, but in the end I applied the decals, after painting the white and blue. I then clearcoated everything with a thin layer and made careful touch ups with paint, where the decals had cracked or where the underyling colour shone through. It was delicate work, bot it paid off.

 

Here is a picture after the decaling, before the touch ups:
