You did a great job on that one. Aoshima has several boxings of that kit, i think. Which one did you use???

Thanks, Guys for the kind words.

Joe, the kit I used was the Vmax 1200, No. 30 in the Naked Bike series. I got it in 2003, so I'm not sure if they're still around, but I doubt there's very much difference among the versions. Here's a link to a picture of the box from my kit:

Hope this helps!

Very nice. I'm building my first bike now. It's Tamiya's 1/12 scale 900s Ducati. Does anyone know or have suggestions on how to make the exhaust? The seam lines go right down the middle of the mufflers so you can imagine the problem with seam lines on chrome where its totaly visible. Would even consider aftermarket pipes, but I'm not familiar with bikes yet.

Jim, I built a 900SS a couple of years ago. I stripped the chrome from the exhausts, glued the muffler halves together, sanded the seams, and refinished with Alclad Chrome.

I attached some pics below. Hope that helps!
