    I feel like I've been slacking a bit with the updates on this, but I've not really had much to show. I've painted the wheels and applied the rim decals. I also got the fairings painted and decaled, and then all of it clear coated with Zero 2k clear. Here are the fairings. I will try and get some photos up of where I'm at with the rest of it soon.

    These were a collaboration project with Peter Wingfield from Scale Auto Art. I built these in about 3 weeks. It was a daunting task and I was up many late nights. The kit needs a lot of work to be a presentable model. The roof is molded separately so it aids in painting the complicated paint scheme. Trouble is the seams where the roof glues to the quarters has to be eliminated AFTER it is painted! I used epoxy putty to blend the seams and after careful sanding I blended the red back in. Once in clear the seams were eliminated. Once the car is done it does represent the 1:1 quite well. I did two of them at one time this is one of the two I built. Thanks!!

    My 6yr old daughter keeps asking me to get her a kit to build, so after having a look around for a cheap, basic kit I settled on this one. This will be the second kit she's build, the first one being a really bad kit of a Lamborghini Jota. This is her with the new kit: and one with her first build: Everything from now on I will let Layla photograph and post.

    Well here I present you my finished (almost...a build is never finished I don't think!!!hahaha) tamiya scott redding marc vds honda rc213v build for the honda group build...not the best pictures I agree but when the weather is a bit nicer I hope to take some better ones!!! Right so it started out as a tamiya marc marquez on da rc213v kit and well there wasn't a hope in hell I was going to do a #93 bike!!!hahaha Right so the important stuff...zero paints marc vds honda rc213v paint set was used for the bodywork and wheels...zero paints aluminium for the frame and swingarm...various shades and made up colours to do the small stuff using a hairy stick and a variety of humbrol and tamiya acrylic paint's!!! The tamiya detail up fork kit was used as I always do on my builds if at all possible!!! Tyre decals are by tb decals (bought off ebay!!!) Decals are designed by pitwall and printed by cartographso very good quality!!!I used alclad translucent blue on the exhausts and tamiya weathering set d and well I suppose that's about it!!! Hope you like her...

    Finally getting around to posting something!! This is the Yamaha M1 Factory colors Edwards bike I built with the Top Studio M1 Detail kit. It was a blast building this one. A bit tedious at times but well worth it! Rundown of parts used. Top Studio 2005 Detail up kit Various Photo etch bolts and nuts Tamiya and Alclad paints. I made the display base from a picture frame with a piece of carbon fiber vinyl as the base. I thoroughly enjoyed this build and will do more of them in the future in this way with the bike naked.

    Sorry for the late reply Imster, I have been mostly focussing on the NSR lately. It's a typical revell kit. Cheap white plastic (not sure if it's styrene) soft detail in certain areas, but very good decals. They go on without any fuss, they don't tear and they take micro set and sol without any problem. Good value for money if you're looking for a no fuss build. Don't expect Tamiya quality, but then again it costs almost half of a decent Tamiya kit. I've made some progress with the chassis but honestly this one will never win any prizes. The exterior has been painted with the appropriate zero paints C5-R blue and the decals have all been applied. I'm going to wait with clearcoating it untill I can combine it with the NSR and another small kit I'm working on.

    This is just a progress album to show you all at what stage I'm currently at during this build, I'm thoroughly enjoying it, I've made a matching rider which is visible in one or two photos, there are a few mods I've done during this build such as pe chain and pe radiator mesh aftermarket nsr500 yasuni end cans and exhaust springs. Still lots of work to do such as all the decals on the front fairing and clear coating it all when done.

    This is my first Automotive build. Tamiya kit, HobbyDesign PE set, Tamiya CF decal set, and some wiring of my own.. The only issue I had was the HD brake calipers did not fit comfortably in the Tamiya wheels, and the wheels had to be turned on the lathe. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable 60-day build.. Enjoy Marco

    Wow, new talent! Great to see that some kids are still interrested in this fantastic hobby. That reminds me I need to encourage my son to finish his ship build...

    Hi everyone, I built this one a few years ago and thought I would show it here. Built OOB with just the addition of plug leads. I thought I would make it as a post race model, so did a bit of weathering on it. There was a trailer for it, but it was damaged when we moved house. Thanks for looking, Drew

    Finally got this one finished up. Thanks to those who followed along and participated in our first group build on here. It's not my greatest build and I'm not overly happy with it as I had a few difficulties along the way. Overall, it doesn't look too bad once it's all together. Thanks for looking.

    Maximum - Imster is correct about the 97%-98% ETOH (Alcohol) - don't buy 70% "Rubbing Alcohol" it is NOT strong enough. As for the paint issue - there's something else going on there - I have painted Zero paints on top of Tamiya TS and AS paints without issues many times - but I always use Tamiya fine white primer - The Tamiya stuff is all synthetic lacquers - AlClad is is usually enamel based, but I'm not sure of their primers because I do not use AlClad primers - I do know you cannot put lacquers on top on enamels - that causes a chemical reaction between the solvents. The order of applications for paints are lacquers - enamels - urethanes - acrylics - which I learned painting 1:1 real cars and motorcycles for many years. In Addition you cannot put a single stage lacquer based clear on top of enamels - urethanes - acrylics without asking for chemical reaction issues - you can use 2 part urethane clears, but you must wear a respirator and use a spray booth with extractor fan and vent the VOCs - 2-part urethane clears basically use super glue aka CA-Zap as the hardener and you do NOT want that in your lungs - COPD is a horrible way to die for this great hobby - the alternative is a single stage "Acrylic" clear that can go on top of all paints, but you will want to do a test on an unused decal to make sure the decals don't react or melt with the clear you apply. I always use 2-part aka 2-pack urethane clears with my respirator and my little paint booth and have no problems spraying on top of other paints provided the lacquer - enamel - urethane - acrylic sequence is followed - when spraying 2-part urethane clear on top of decals you want to apply a couple of really light "tack" coats first before you apply the wet "flow" coat to ensure that the solvents in the clear do NOT attack the decals. When 2-part urethane clears dry they can generate heat that can "melt" the decals if too thick on a coat is first applied. Hope this painting advise is helpful to you Maximum. Cheers John

    One thing I forgot to mention, I read a WIP on a german forum and it seems that the wheels sit too far inside the body but it's an easy fix to put some styrene blocks on the uprights to bring the wheels further out. I haven't checked that yet on my car but I'll do a dry fit when the body is clearcoated.

    Thanks all for your kind comments! I managed to get a few decent photos to show the detail work, I also received Paul's ( @F1modlz ) professional photo set for this car and I gotta say its amazing how much more information and detail I can see already! If you have any intention of building this kit whether you will be doing a full detailed build or a basic oob build you should get this CD! It shows colours perfectly for oob builds and for the mental people like me who like to get lots of details. Its only £10 and with the way the British currency is at the moment its a bargain! Anyways on with the photos, still a fair bit more wiring and details to add to the engine before I begine adding more kit parts. Also after looking at Paul's pics I can see that the tube the runs from the top of the engine head on the left hand side and into the transmission is actually a solid bar rather than flexible tube so I will be addressing that issue in due time. Sorry about the dusty pics! About halfway through I realised about the dust I also managed to get the front brakes completed. Once again in light of Paul's pics there will be a little more detail added Hope you guys like
