Hi all, I finished up a client build of the NSR500 Daytona 200 version. The main differences between the Daytona version and the standard 1984 NSR500 are: - no vents on the rear tail section for the Daytona 200 version - different colour scheme for the rear hugger - different colour scheme for the cowlings - fuel fillers on both side of the bike (on the main fairing) So overall a little bit of modifying was required. I didn't do a build diary for this one because it was a client build that originally had a fairly tight deadline. In terms of detail, both axles, and the controls section were heavily detailed, the engine was not because the cowlings are permanently attached to the bike, I used the kit chain for this one as well. On with the pics, any questions feel free to ask
