I built this kit box stock over a two month period.  I used Model master enamel's and metalizer's for the finish along with washes for weathering.  The kit went together really well and I plan on doing a few more 1/12 scale build's.

That looks great- I have that kit in my stash and will build it someday. I built the Ducati 900 NCR racer in 1986.

If it wasn't for the scale of the concrete texture giving things away, it could pass for the real thing! Nice...  B)

Thank's for kind word's everyone. Harry I thought it looked pretty spot on in some of the picture's I took ,but to hear you say it really mean's a lot.  This was my first bike and first 1/12 scale build, I enjoyed it possibly more than anything else I have built yet.  I learned a bit researching the subject and I believe the Honda RC166 will be my next build, kind of a tribute to Mike "the bike" Hailwood.

Some outrageous skills you have going on with this project. I like the last pic with the sun hitting it. You nailed this thing and made it your own for sure! Great job my friend!!
