    wow,,love it!  I really like that 1:1 kawi  scambler,,yours looks great!  Wish I could find more large scale bike kits out there.
  3. skymnky721 added a post in a topic What do you listen to while you build???   

    I always have a DVD  or VHs or youtube movie of some type of Motorsports  while building,,seems to work for me.

    Why enamel paint turns to gel after a month or so?
    This may have been covered somewhere else,,couldnt find it. Anyways,,why does testors enamel bottle{small size}  turn to a gel-like glob after a couple of months?  I store them indoors,,away from direct sunlight,,so there not getting too hot,,and the weirdest thing is  not all colors do this!  Some I have  Ive had for  a year or so,,and there still fine{aside from having to add a bit of thinner to help flow better}  I dont get it.   Any ideas?

    Well I dont have EVERY one they put out,,quite a few though. Heres the CB 750 tamiya  1/12th,,I dont have the large scale 750{that would be nice!} The CB 750 tamiya went together without any hassles or modifications for fit.     IMO  Tamiya makes the most accurate kits for the $$$.  Meaning  ,not having to clean flash,,filing mating surfaces,alignment of assemblys,,ect,,ect. Ill toss a few more tamiyas Ive done in here  just for the fun of it.
