I tried to copy the colour of the tank that was on the box, so it ended up being a custom mix of about 4 different paints.


I used masking fluid for the chipping, painted the green undercoat and then stippled some masking on with a firm brush. Painted the top coat then removed the making fluid to show the paint beneath.


Just got a Revell Marder 1A5 in the sale, so hoping that will come out better than this one.


Thanks for the comments guys

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

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.

Thanks, it is the Tamiya kit. This is the 6th tamiya car kit I've built, after 3 revell cars and the build quality is so much better in the tamiyas. The level of detail is a lot better as well, and they just seem to fit a lot better together as well. Wouldn't go back to revell now, especially as a novice you get better results.
