Tamiya 1/12 yamaha virago xv1000.

This is my take on Tamiya’s Yamaha XV1000…
Built from the box except that I removed the fake chrome plating and used Alclad for all the metal bits.
I decided to paint it in a custom “retro” style scheme with Tamiya’s Pearl Clear overall to give it a metal flake look.

5 additional images. Click to enlarge.
