Tamiya 1/12 xv1600.
Here’s the next chapter in my current motorcycle fixation.
It’s Tamiya’s XV1600 Custom which I have modified slightly to look more like a “semi-customised” version…
I removed all the kit’s fake chrome and re-did all the metal with assorted Alclad lacquers.
The paint scheme is non standard and is based on one I saw for sale online.
The colours are Tamiya Gloss Black and a mixture based on Mica Red, both lacquers.
It’s finished with multiple coats of Tamiya Pearl Clear to give it a metal flake appearance…
