The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.
Yes it´s an all new "Fat Boy Lo" and it looks like the actual 2013 model. It will have the Twin Cam Engine. The old Fat Boy comes with the Evolution Engine.
If I read it right on the tamiya homepage, the cylinders comes as seperate parts fin by fin. Google made this translation from their homepage: a stacked assembly method the cylinder head and cylinder, 1584cc air-cooled V-twin engine as a center of attraction to reproduce sharp cooling fin chiseled.
I hope they take the chance, to make a first class model without the old phillips screws and put so much detail in it, like they do in every military scale model.
I´m looking forward to get the new Fat Boy Lo and hope they make a Black Line, Slim or a Wide Glide too.
Even when I come from the motorcycle section, I take a look here from time to time. I like this model, very nice and clean build. Please let me know what TS Number is the Tamiya champagne, because I only find a golden color tone from Tamiya called chamagne and yours look right silver, like I need it for a project of mine.
