  1. Hi guys Here I will start a WIP which will probably take some time to get ready. First and foremost, this is not even about the construction but the 3D printing. And I want to share this with you. The first thing on the plan was to reprint the rims of the YZR. Unfortunately, I did not find any drawings on the internet, so I printed them the way I liked them the most. It was not an easy task, because I did not want to succeed in the first 3 D pressure. Constructed with DesignSpark Mechanical. Printed with Elegoo Mars right side kit rim see you next time :)
  2. Finally got round to taking some completed photos for this build. Overall I'm happy with it. I didn't experience any real problems along the way, it all went together as you would expect from a Tamiya kit. I added a few extras, like neodymium magnets to replace the fairing screws and wire on the hand grips and SMS PE set, but overall I was wanting to concentrate on having a nice, clean build. This was the first time I've been successful with polishing, which I put down to buying the Zero Paints polishing set. Thanks for looking and thanks to those that followed along in the WIP here.
  3. 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.
  4. Ever since I built the original Tamiya Yamaha R1 about 10 years ago I’ve been hopijg they would release a new model. Earlier this year thst finally happened, with the new R1M being announced in May 2018 at a show in Japan. As soon as it showed up on retail sites I had my pre-order in. Finally it arrived this week, so I got stuck straight in!
  5. Hi, Just completed the Hasegawa YZR500 in Lucky Strike Roberts colours from the 1989 season. This one the mount of Kevin Magee (Magoo). Impressive kit and will probably try a Sarron version in the future. Only aftermarket bought for the build the Decalpool Lucky Strike sheet, but used plenty of PE, bolts and other bits I had to hand. Red parts of the livery sprayed with a custom mix and 2k clear finish, not polished yet. Great kit although I found the fairing a little tight so might be worth a dry fit before painting if you are going to attempt this one, other than that some great crisp moldings. Cheers Doc
