Tamiya 1/12 YAMAHA YZF-R1M.
This is my Tamiya Yamaha YZF-R1M.
Built almost straight from the box using Mr Color and Tamiya lacquer paints.
The metallic effects are Alclad but with a couple of coats of Mr Color clear so it looks like automotive lacquer.
I lost the suspension spring to the carpet monster so I had to make my own, which I reckon came out better anyway.
I also used the kit forks as I couldn’t get the anodised update parts, with careful painting they came out fine though.
I also drilled out the holes in the brake discs, very tedious but we’ll worth the effort.
