    Aoshima CB400 Four

    Maybe magnets could hold those engine housings? I have 2 copies of this kit, nice progress!!
  2. I've been trying to do this for two years! Nice outcome, I'm sure they were time-consuming. Did you get a CNC Sherline? Also, most of the axles I made fit ok with current PE sets, but I did not make threaded axles I just made a nut that was glued onto the axle, once the subassembly was finalized. Congrats!!

    Great result! I esp like the chain, rotors, swingarm, and engine close ups... they really stand out as expertly done

    Hasegawa 'Elf' Honda NSR500

    Might have had a condition called Hasagawa Syndrome. I'm experiencing it presently, ? Poor parts fit, nearly impossible wiring connections, cryptic instructions lol!

    Honda RC30

    Very clever! I use my lathe for this too... Very clean work on that wheel too! Is this bike one I'd need to make a special rear axle for? Just wondering...

    Beautifully done! Any other aftermarket parts? Looks top notch...
  17. Hi all, I've embarked on a brave new journey into F1 building, the 1/12 Tamiya MP4/6.. I'm a few hours into it now and have seen a few fit issues, primarily the TopStudio heads (like most resin parts) are a little distorted resulting in a sliver of light showing when viewed from the side. I can imagine the compression loss. So it will be slightly modified for a perfect fit I've added the TopStudio Engine set, Cooling/ECU set, Cockpit set, Axles, Intake, Antenna and Brake sets. Still waiting for the front Bulkhead/Suspension set to arrive. Each major set has hundreds of parts, beautifully made. Instructions not even close to synchronized with the Tamiya instructions as usual, so Lots of page flipping and fit-checking here. I'll begin the wiring next, Enjoy the pics! CnC welcome! Marco

    Love the black cable ties, did you make them yourself? Nice closeup pics, and excellent work Sandro! Marco
  22. Hi All, my first AFV build, pretty basic, but I've added (OCD) a set of T-66 cast metal tracks, a PE/machined 50cal machine gun, and 2 30cal guns. The repetitious 46 wheels are finally primed, upper and lower hull, and turret complete and primed, ready for the fun part: paint and weathering! Tracks will be assembled as the paint dries. CnC welcome, as I am learning different weathering techniques now, and this is a big experiment that I can learn from! My first step will be a gentle sweep of darker Olive Drab at the bottom to a lighter Dark Yellow/OD mix at the top, giving me some sun-bleached upper hull areas, (I hope). Mud comes later. Enjoy the pics Marco

    Sandro if you use hollow axles the jig becomes much more stable.. beautiful work you're doing as always!! Marco
