For anyone wanting proof of the bikes performance, watch some you tube videos of it in action. It is ridiculously fast!
I purchased a few after market goodies for this one. Zero paints provided the paint set, complete with a metallic pigment to buff the fairings with. I’ve got no idea how that works yet, but did get latex gloves with the set so I’ll assume it is a delicate process. I’ll do a test run on a spare part first and include it in the work in progress.
The head stock on the bike is made from carbon fibre and I really wanted to replicate that on the model. I watched numerous tutorials on how to make your own templates using masking tape and a pencil, then much to my relief Studio 27 released a decal set.
The new airbrush booth had been left for me by the post man in the back shed when I got home on Friday. I’ve still got the big cardboard box though which I will have to use for big aircraft.
The engine itself is fairy complex and consists of numerous parts. As per usual I gave it a coat of gloss black as a primer. But that’s it for tonight as I have work in the morning. I’ll test some new paints on the engine block tomorrow.
