Hasegawa 'Elf' Honda NSR500

Recommended Posts

Thanks for those following the WIP. Built from the 1:12 Hasegawa kit and the Top Studio detail set. A lot of pain doing the wiring, but got there in the end. Painted mostly with Zero paints and a few Alclad 'Hot Metal' paints on the exhaust.

 

From pretty early on, the plan was to display it without the fairing, as otherwise too much detail would be lost. A last minute effort created a basic stand to hold the fairings for displaying them next to the bike.

Nice job Dallas! You need to invest in a nice static brush unless you already have one and your like me, forgetting to use it before taking photos :D

In the immortal words of Mr Frank Carson ' That's a Cracker! '  .  Great build Dallas and some lovely detail in there.  What happened to the catch bottle at the front end?

Thanks guys. Doc, the catch bottle would be mounted to the inside of the fairing. I didn’t actually fit them as I wasn’t sure how it would be done for real when removing the front end.

Loved watching this build! Fine work there on the TS detail set, actually made it look easy!! 

 

Thanks Mark. 

 

I'm glad it looked easy - but I can assure you it wasn't xD. I almost gave up a few times, especially when I got to the wiring. I really wasn't feeling it with this build.

Might have had a condition called Hasagawa Syndrome. I'm experiencing it presently, ?

Poor parts fit, nearly impossible wiring connections, cryptic instructions lol!

I didn’t think the parts fit was too bad. The tolerances are very tight though, so don’t allow for paint. I don’t think doing the detail set with it helped with the instructions though ?
