Just when you think it can't get any better if does, how do you do it?  You're attention to detail is exceptional how did you do the fork yoke clamp bolts?

Thanks Kev! I think I'm just way too fussy and I just can't settle for OOB builds which can be a little boring and mundane for me personally. The clamp bolts were done by cutting out the plastic 'bolt' part and then very very carefully drilling through perfectly straight holes through both ends then I used metal turned bolts to finishe it all off

That's just amazing, where did you get the bolts and nuts from?

 

I share you're view about OOD builds I just need to get my skill level up a bit more first, being an engineer by trade it's all in the detail for me.

The nuts and bolts were from Tuner Model Manufactory (T2M) unfortunately they have gone out of business and at the moment there isnt a manufacturer who has made parts like T2M did :(

It's an old post but which red did you use for the fairing?

 

I used Zero paints set for the NSR500 '84
