Top studio turned meta bolts were used for the mudguard fittings.


I've been looking for something like this.
I have not found this at top studio yet.
What's the exact name?

I completely agree with Imster - the added details make this build stand out.

 

I liked the videos too - only for some reason the volume of the videos is very low even with all the volume settings on "high".

 

Just something to consider for future videos - the volume is also low on the Top Studio chain build video.

 

Other than that excellent work Dallas

 

Cheers

John

I was aware of the sound problems. I've tried a few things, and think I've found a solution, I just forgot to implement it on the last couple of videos 🙄

 

Hopefully the next ones will be better.

Audio is much better Dallas -

 

Excellent work on the paint job.

 

Your videos are really well done - Hats off to you

Already the conversion on the exhaust gives an inkling that this bike is not just built out of the box.
And with your new choice of color, which I think fits perfectly well, it becomes even more individual.
Looks great!

Thank you mueller. Really just making this up as I go, not real plan to speak of.

Will not that be too warm when buffing ( wobble )?

It’s possible, same as working on a 1:1 you need to keep moving to disperse the heat. It’s not running too fast and those pads don’t heat up much either so it’s ok.

Followed along Dallas both the videos and the postings - Really well done

 

Your artistic license with the paint scheme and the decals is great.

 

Much better than what everyone else had done.

 

The only thing I would have done different would be to have put the decals of "the Doctor" on the windscreen and not the side fairing

 

Also the way I tint the windscreens is to paint them with Tamiya TS "smoke" sprayed thru an airbrush.and airbrushed to the underside of the windscreen

 

It allows for varying the "darkness" of the tint depending on how many coats you apply - 

 

Anyhow - great addition to the website Dallas

 

Cheers

John

Thanks John. Yes, that would be the more obvious place for them, but I like to be different 😁.

 

As for the tint, I did that on the Ducati I built, this was just trying to show an alternative method 👍
