We're there, bit of cable routing, seat installation and then on with the decals. Due to their age, the decals broke up badly but I managed to recover them along with a teeny bit of touching in with a suitable colour paint. The decision not to go with the big coloured panel decals I feel is a good one, the remaining decals being brown, gold and black work well and are really subtle, I like the final feel, it's better than I hoped for.
Anyway, a pic for you, will drop this and a few more in the gallery shortly.
Finally, massive thanks to all those who followed and more importantly, those who took the time to comment and support, you guys are the best.
Many thanks CeeBee, I know it's not really your cup of tea so really appreciate the kind words.
Hi Keith, thank you, it means a great deal coming from who I consider to be one of the best Auto builders I have ever followed. As for what's next mate, not sure, might take a break until Tamiya's new 1/6 Harley drops on the doormat in December or I might do a 1/24 motor in the meantime. I have a few of Tamiya's 1/12 cars that I want to have a go at but I think the Harley is my main focus, with all Tamiya's expertise, and 30 years since their last new tool release, it should be truly marvellous!
Guys, very kind comments always gratefully received, thank you.
It's unfortunate that my favourite subjects, bikes in 1/6 are so costly, being realistic, one, maybe two is all you can afford to do a year. That said, December can't come quick enough, I'm so excited by the new 1/6 hog kit I go dizzy thinking about it! (Yes, I'm that sad) Rest assured I will bore the pants off you all when it arrives!
I spent some time yesterday evening looking for a slightly less involved subject to fill in the time, probably something 1/24, I have a few to choose from. If I start it, assuming I don't finish it before the hog arrives, it will be unceremoniously 'parked' until the hog is done.
