Well after collecting all the parts needed to complete the model i started.
Step 1: ENGINE
i clipped the engine parts off the sprue then painted them, i then used the cement to attach all the separate pieces together- i didn’t realise how fiddly it would be, so its a good job i enjoy fiddly things lol. so i finally built up the engine after much faffing around.
after finishing the engine, i moved onto the next stage
Part 2: RAM AIR BOX & Part 3: FRAME ASSEMBLY
this part did not take very long, some simple painting and attaching it together was easy to because the pieces were bigger then the parts i had to use for the engine.
Part 4: HANDLEBARS
this stage was back to nice small fiddle parts – i must say even at this beginning stage of the build precision tweezers are a MUST, fingers just don’t cut it lol.
after fiddly and tweaking i finally completed the handlebars.
well that is all i am doing for now – only had a little while today but over the next few days i should have more time.
I am really enjoying making the model so far, i have always been one for building objects and gadgets so thought why not try a model and i must say i love it – i am already looking for the next one i can do lol.
next part shall be arriving very soon
