    nice work so far ken. It is a beautiful blue, better than my bike. I have to reorder the kit just to get the front fairing as it works out cheaper than just buying the fairing. For the cbr 1100xx 1/12 scale as Tamiya says, as I dropped the pocsy
    thing after I glued, the wing mirrors in place, I got a phone call, from them bloody cold callers asking questions, about house bills and it made me jump getting the phone call as, I was trying to concentrate on where the next part goes, and smudged all the indicators and the window that covers the headlight with glue as I held in place, till just enough to hold it self, in place so for now my models are on hold. But I will be back to finish off properly. That's why their are no more photographs at the moment​

    This is looking really awesome!!!
    I also like the blue colour much more than the original one so that was a very good choice!

    Does it come with electronic lights? Is it something you will add if it doesn't come as standard?
    I've got several rolls of 0805 leds (2x1.3mm size) in various colours that can be slipped into very tiny parts but they are very bright. I often use enamel wires to power these in a discrete mount.
    Let me know if you need some because I bought them in bulk for a few projects I've done the last couple of years and I've got loads. The brightness can be adjusted by selecting a suitable resistor.
    It's a project that would look nice with lights for sure!

    If electronics isn't your thing then don't worry. I can solder wires to the leds and select a suitable resistor before I stick them in an envelope. All you have to do is to add a battery, and some sort of switch?

    That's very kind mate I would love to do that but I just think it's beyond my meagre abilities, I've use leds on a few of my dios and would also like to use them on the HLF20 I'm building but the space and hiding the wires is what scares me.

    Hi all well I've detailed up the battery and added the upgrade kit decal (the smaller decal is the one that came with the kit.
    [​IMG]
    I must say I am surprised with a kit of this size and price of the huge amount of missing detail, mostly seems to be wiring which surely wouldn't be that expensive to add to the kit.

    Hi all started on the fuel system added the butterfly valves made from aluminium foil onto which I put brass leaf.

    Then I cut it to fit

    Then cut a piece of sprue then halved it.
    [​IMG]
    Covered it with the brass leaf then drilled two holes and added a couple of screws

    Hi all bit more added here (this is just the supplied detail loads of wiring and connectors still to add) ( I really don't know why they don't supply varying thicknesses of wire surly it wouldn't add more than a tenner to the cost of the kit)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    As I said loads more detail to add but couldn't resist trying it on the engine.

    Also got the tyres on the wheels (Man they are heavy, but great quality)
