Hi all well I've finished the tank and sprayed the clear coat on the rest of the paintwork.

Such a gorgeous colour (even if I do say so myself)

Nice job one the paint but you're going to have to be very, very careful removing it from the sprue trees so that you don't damage all that good work. Any reason why you decided to paint the parts while connected to the trees?

I'm enjoying the progress with this one.

Hi mate it's how poacher did it and I love the fact the clear plastic packing it can in is very cleverly designed that no part of the painted surface is touching anything when it's in the packaging so I can store it with no worry of damage.

Hi all well I've detailed up the battery and added the upgrade kit decal (the smaller decal is the one that came with the kit.
Image
I must say I am surprised with a kit of this size and price of the huge amount of missing detail, mostly seems to be wiring which surely wouldn't be that expensive to add to the kit.

Hi all started on the fuel system added the butterfly valves made from aluminium foil onto which I put brass leaf.
Image
Image
Then I cut it to fit
Image
Then cut a piece of sprue then halved it.
Image
Covered it with the brass leaf then drilled two holes and added a couple of screws

Hi all bit more added here (this is just the supplied detail loads of wiring and connectors still to add) ( I really don't know why they don't supply varying thicknesses of wire surly it wouldn't add more than a tenner to the cost of the kit)
Image
Image
As I said loads more detail to add but couldn't resist trying it on the engine.
Image
Image
Image
Also got the tyres on the wheels (Man they are heavy, but great quality)
