GO! Tamiya’s 1/12 Yamaha YZR-M1

Tamiya’s 1/12 Yamaha YZR-M1

Built OOB using the following paints:

Testors MM Acryl
True Blue Pearl

Testors Metalizers
Titanium Bronze
Aluminum Coat

Tamiya Acrylic:
Clear Blue

Lots of polishing and waxing between coats, but I never did achieve that “miles deep” shine. Overall, though, I’m pretty happy with the outcome.

  3. It’s great, James, nice to see someone else modelling one of these. I think they make great models, need lots of work, give you room to experiment with the different metallic finishes, etc.

  4. James,
    As I have said before, I really admire you folks that do M/C’s. I can’t say enough about the dedication and skill level that goes into these kits. Excellent, Excellent work.

  5. Legendary bike! Great rider! Nice build there as well mate.
