    Very nice Ken. Not often you find a kit that arrives in its outer dedicated outer packing.

    Hi all well I've not actually started building it yet but I couldn't resist comparing it to the biggest scale I've built so far (1/6 bikes) these bikes are huge but putting the ducati crank case and gearbox along side it this is going to be enormous (baring in mind there are no cylinder heads or fuel intake on it) by the time I add those the engine will probably be twice this size.
    I will probably being upsetting the purists among you as it won't be the box colours it will be a custom job.

    Hi all well I won't be here on my birthday so I got permission to start it today.
    I decided to start on the exhaust as it has been noted as the worst fitting part of the whole kit, this thing is huge the bit of the exhaust I've started is the length of a 1/24 car and that's basically just the down pipe. So here is the start of this massive kit, I must say I'm buzzing with excitement.
    [​IMG]
    I've plugged some of the screw holes
    [​IMG]
    Then decided to add the first missing detail, the welding seam on the curved outside and inside section of the exhaust (i will add the weld seam round the other side when its finally attached to the rest of it)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I've not glued the two sections together yet to make drilling of the holes for the oxygen sensors easier.

    There's loads of detail you could add just to this part and I'm going to try and add it all, I did say TRY.
