Not a Harley
Hi, I haven't posted anything for a while so here goes with another motorbike. I don't usually do road bikes but this one caught my eye. It's Yamaha's attempt at a cruiser. Tamiya originally released this 1/12 kit some years ago, this a more recent re-release with some added “custom” additions, mainly a windscreen and some saddlebags. Talking of the windscreen, I accidentally dropped it onto our laminate floor, I stood up to retrieve it and as I do so I heard a sharp cracking noise, yep I managed to stand on it……….. The resultant damage made it unusable, which was a shame as it was one of the main reasons why I bought this kit. Undeterred I found some clear packing material and fashioned a replacement, it's a little thinner than Tamiya's original, which made it easier to bend it into shape. Unfortunately it hardly shows in the photographs. Anyway, the rest of the construction went to plan and it's finished with Tamiya's spray cans. Thanks for looking, George.
