    Some nice Tamiya details off the bat, like these awesome weld seams, so cool, The kit comes with a clear body, so my thought is to do one side clear and the other in the racing livery.

    Some gloss black primer on the frame and work on the Frame and engine, till we get to the point where the frame spider is about to attack and engulf the defenceless engine.

    And just like that the spider swallowed the engine whole and we have the beginning of a motorbike.

    This is an excellent choice and ditto start, Anthony @anthonyricco
    The details do indeed look great.
    Work on that engine, and the other parts as well, is amazing.

    Nice work Anthony! I really like your idea of half and half fairing... offers the best of both worlds! I have the Tamiya Honda NSR 500 factory colour kit which come with the clear fairing as well as a white styrene fairing. I haven't started it yet, but on that I thought of fitting the clear faring onto the model and doing the white fairing to display on a separate stand next to the model. I like your option of two in one though!

    I really like this, may be one I'd have a run at in the future. My NSR 500 kit has clear fairings aswell, but I chickened out of using them !

    Ah that will be nice having it on the stand @Rory, mine didn't have the option, only one clear faring, so thats why I thought half and half.
