Ok John and Simon, then I will start a short wip . Tamiya's KR500 is quite an old kit (1984). Many details are not as accurate as today's models, there was also only a PE kit from Acustion. But it is a really nice bike . The tank frame construction alone makes it something special. The exhaust must still be filled inside here Here I had still used modeling filler, today I use 2k filler or since recently a good 1K filler from Bindulin Sorry for my mess😁 Engine and rear suspension etc. Cylinder head bolts I would replace today with Masterclub bolts ,just looks better .

Next up on my bench is the Tamiya '99 Red Bull Yamaha WCM YZR500. I'm using the Scale Motorsport detail set for this and Zero paints.

Hi guys! Finally, Tamburini's masterwork is ready to show! Details can be seen in the WIP I was cleaning the bike showcase before i put the new guy in, so made some pics of some of Mr.916's new friends, there are a lot more of them but they're a bit shy ( notice also the difference between a 1:6 Minichamps Desmosedici and a 1:12 bike ) I'm very happy about the result, IMHO one of my best builds since i've started this hobby 14 years ago. Body panels are the smoothest i've ever had, they had around 6/7 layers 2K clear each and have been pol
Hi Guys Here is my Stoner replica of his 06 Honda monster, the kit is normal Tamiya quality with no issues on fitting and I did the best I could with being adventurous and adding details, this is my most complex build so far as I invested in the Hobby Design chain set which was such a pain to build for a novice, but you gotta start somewhere right? Bits included Hobby Design chain, Tamiya front fork set, and Top Studio carbon decal set. Onto the pics, I hope you like it (I have painted the stand since these pics were taken)
