Thought I’d post for the first time in this category with my first motorbike build. I’m building Tamiya’s Honda Fireblade!
It’s a lovely bit of kit, and I also picked up the detail-up parts, which mostly focus on the suspension.
Here’s my progress thus far. The engine has been built up, and I’ve done my best to represent something that has been well cleaned and polished after a healthy amount of riding.
I also finished building the frame. I’m experimenting with the use of clear coats on it, basically seeing how glossy of a finish I can achieve. So far, my conclusion is that the formula for mirror finish is x+1, where x is the number of (pre-retarded, of course) clear coats applied to the model.
Progress on the bike is beginning to speed up, so I’m going to post a bit more soon
