Well I took the liberty of having a closer look at your stash picture...

:D

Why not try a buddy build of the panigale, rc166 or even the good old tammy yzr500 (kit 12001 of which you have 2,  I have the taira version).

Of course, I guess that's long term planning given your just started your 1/12 F1 project 

;)

I've done a Panigale although it wasn't heavily detailed and I have a couple more Panigales, one for a super detailed build and the other for a WSBK version. The RC166 is the old box from the one I already built but I haven't posted it up yet (I will do it in the next few days). The YZR500 is a good option! We will see what the vote says!

 

I will be building the 1/12 Williams FW14b alongside a motorcycle build in the next few months so it won't be that long term to plan afterall :)

I honestly think the bar has been raised to another level with this build Imster.  Superb attention to detail and something to aim for.

 

Cheers

Yeah this is from the buddy build with Mark, as for topping it? It really depends on the kit and how much reference material I can fish up.
