Last night I polished out the pearl white paint on the 2011 bike and decided that it would look nicer if I painted the red portions of the body parts instead of using the decals. Plus all the red would match. It turned out that it took less time to paint and looks way nicer. I still have to clean up the small errors and polish the red but I'm happy with the results.

Thanks again for looking.

Thanks Marcos.

No, I gave up the perfectionist builds when I turned 50. Not enough time to build those anymore. Now it's just a LOT of detail. I have a ton of stuff not "finished" on these three that will be concealed by bodywork and the rest just cost more money to add.

All the decal work is finished and the body work has all been polished. I have a few details to clean up on the chassis but otherwise I’m down to final assembly for all three bikes.

I should be able to get these under glass in a couple of weeks.

Here’s the finished decal work on the 2011 bike. So glad I painted the red. It's much better than the decals could have been.
