Finished the decal job on the 09' bike last night. This should be the hardest of the three to do. Studio 27 decals take a lot of work to get them to lay down.
I will probably do the final assembly on all three at once as there a quite a few metal fasteners to add to the body parts.
Well, on to the 2010 machine decals.
I know it's not a car but thanks for looking in anyway.

Wow three builds at once is pretty insane. I cant believe you cut up that decal and made it work.

OK, things are moving right along.

Just finished the decal placements for the 2010 bike. These seemed to go on a lot easier than the 2009. Still need to gloss coat and polish them but the hard part is over.

I also shot the paint for the 2011 bike last night so I should be able to do those decals this coming weekend.

Stay tuned and thanks for looking or following.

Last night I polished out the pearl white paint on the 2011 bike and decided that it would look nicer if I painted the red portions of the body parts instead of using the decals. Plus all the red would match. It turned out that it took less time to paint and looks way nicer. I still have to clean up the small errors and polish the red but I'm happy with the results.

Thanks again for looking.

Thanks Marcos.

No, I gave up the perfectionist builds when I turned 50. Not enough time to build those anymore. Now it's just a LOT of detail. I have a ton of stuff not "finished" on these three that will be concealed by bodywork and the rest just cost more money to add.

All the decal work is finished and the body work has all been polished. I have a few details to clean up on the chassis but otherwise I’m down to final assembly for all three bikes.

I should be able to get these under glass in a couple of weeks.

Here’s the finished decal work on the 2011 bike. So glad I painted the red. It's much better than the decals could have been.

Well I finally got them all done but wanted to share a quick snapshot of each before I do a full photo shoot and post in the under glass forum.

Thanks for following.
