Very nicely built, the engine block I like it great.
The
discreet Washes with Panel Lines Tamyia?

Thanks, I use Windsor and Newton artist oils to make the washes.

Hello received mine and noticed the engine would be satin black.... Are you making a different version?

 

Yes, a bit of artistic license. As there are so many being built now I’m trying to make mine a bit different.

Received the S27 carbon fiber decals for this bike.... they seem really well done... no border and nice pattern....

 

I’ve got some S27 decals for my Alfa build, but found them a bit brittle. Maybe the R1M ones will be better.

Few photos of where I’m at with this.

 

Wheel was masked off to replicate a ‘rim sticker’ to make it a bit different to all the others being built. Lots of various PE washers used to finish it all off. Swing arm was painted with Alclad polished Aluminium and everything else was a range of Zero Paints. Scale Motorsport CF decals were used on the rear hugger, chain guides and front sprocket cover. All cleared with Zero paints 2k diamond.

T2M braided line was ran and pinned fown as per my reference photos

Rear disk was scuffed up to look used. An RB Motion banjo fitting finished the caliper off

Rear chain was painted silver, then a black oil wash applied and then the pins picked out with a fine brush and silver paint.

Side stand was modified to not use any screws. Pin to push it down and the spring where both scratch built.
