My first bike kit, been modelling since November so not a patch on some of the kits that I've seen, but I'm very pleased with it.

Brush painted apart from the cowlings which is TS51 out of a rattlecan.

That look's good, you did a real nice job for that to be brush painted.  I like the different metal hues and nice touch on the heat stained exhaust.  I just got done building my first 1/12 scale bike and I am hooked.

Thanks, I used Tamiya weathering pack D on the exhaust.

Bikes are quite addictive, I am going to start next on the ZX-RR Kawasaki, Tamiya kit 14109 when it arrives in the post.

I thought that was paint on the exhaust, that's actually even more impressive.  I need that weathering kit, I have kit E.  You did a nice job on the decal's also, can't wait to see the ZX-RR when you finish it.  I think my next one will be the Tamiya Honda RC166 GP bike or a race bike from the 90's era.  As soon as weather permit's I will post picture's of my completed '81 Ducati 900.
