1/6 Fat Boy Lo W.I.P.

10 May 2014 - 05:37 PM

I have decided that I am going to start work on the new Tamiya 1/6 scale Fat Boy Lo.  This kit looks to be really nice with not many issues, The biggest disappointment is with the brakes and exhaust, this is why I got the detail set which has some really nice replacements for the stock parts. Another disappointment is while the chrome platting looks really good each piece has a flaw somewhere that I just will not be able to deal with for what I am expecting to get out of this build. This means I will have to strip each piece and redo with alclad. I will be finishing this kit with Scale Finishes paints in Harley Hot White Denim. Anyways, fair warning I do not work fast and am currently taking Masters classes so updates might be slow and far in between.

Finished this one up today. Tamiya Kit, hobby design photo etch kit went together great no fitment issues, only problem I had was with the glass which is pretty typical for me. Overall very very happy

 

Paint is Scale Finishes Subaru World Rally blue.

Was asked to take some pictures of this kit and thought I would post them here. while it is not the full engine detail expected from the future Aoshima release, it still looks like it will make a really good model to me.  Here are some pictures, I apologize for my less than perfect photography ability.

Overall I am happy with the quality of the kit for the price point, only thing is I wish it would have included better instructions for masking the paint scheme.
