Finally managed to get his done today, pretty pleased with it although the decals were a nightmare.

I think I like this one better than the Yamaha, you did a real nice job on it.  Are the fairing's and plastic's molded in two pieces like most of Tamiya's bike kit's?  The reason I ask is because you did a killer job molding them, paying close attention to even the underside.  I had so much fun building the Ducati that I got two more build's, 916 Ducati and I am working on the Ajinomoto NSR 250 Race Bike.  These thing's are fun.

The fuel tank, seat cowling and the underside were 2 separate parts, where everything else was moulded in one piece. I was quite pleased with the fuel tank as I managed to completely remove the join line by filling and sanding.

I think I did a better job on this than the yamaha, the YZR. Was the first bike I have built so learnt a few things on this that I took forward to the Kawasaki.

Currently building the YZR monster tech 2009 which is going well so far

I can  see where the decals could be a nightmare.  Good Job!

Nice bike! Those decals do look like they would be a lot of tedious work. You did a great job on them!
