So what started off as a basic, ‘out of the box’ build of the new Tamiya kit, it turned into something more. The kit just begged for extra detail to be added and I had to oblige. Thanks to everyone who followed along the WIP, but to highlight, Zero paints used pretty much throughout with my own paint job on it, finished with 2K diamond clear amd polished up. 

 

A few extra wires were added and the kit wires replaced for more accurate scaled equivalent. A bunch of Top Studio, Hobby Design and T2M nuts, bolts and PE heads were fitted throughout. Magnets replace the screws for the fairings and the rest were either covered up or replaced with aluminium tube.

The Modifications, the paint, just great!
I love this bike !

Incidentally, I have only found a real machine (R1M) with your exhaust modification on the Internet so far.
If I build them, I'll definitely pick up on the idea.

Thanks @mueller. I spend quite a bit of time researching the exhaust. In fact, for quite a bit of it. Looking on ebay for parts gives a good insight into what the individual parts look like.
