Hi all well I've not actually started building it yet but I couldn't resist comparing it to the biggest scale I've built so far (1/6 bikes) these bikes are huge but putting the ducati crank case and gearbox along side it this is going to be enormous (baring in mind there are no cylinder heads or fuel intake on it) by the time I add those the engine will probably be twice this size.
I will probably being upsetting the purists among you as it won't be the box colours it will be a custom job.

Custom paint sounds fine to me.

Hi all well I won't be here on my birthday so I got permission to start it today.
I decided to start on the exhaust as it has been noted as the worst fitting part of the whole kit, this thing is huge the bit of the exhaust I've started is the length of a 1/24 car and that's basically just the down pipe. So here is the start of this massive kit, I must say I'm buzzing with excitement.
Posted Image
I've plugged some of the screw holes
Posted Image
Then decided to add the first missing detail, the welding seam on the curved outside and inside section of the exhaust (i will add the weld seam round the other side when its finally attached to the rest of it)
Posted Image
Posted Image
I've not glued the two sections together yet to make drilling of the holes for the oxygen sensors easier.
Posted Image
Posted Image
There's loads of detail you could add just to this part and I'm going to try and add it all, I did say TRY.

This is looking good already but my son would sack you if you turned out welds like that for him. His are ground down and polished.

Hi all well after an update on my samsung tab s2 it has made it totally useless for posting on forums so I'm now stuck with this incredibly slow and clumsy laptop so here is the next installment. i was following silver911 build of this and decided to emulate his enhancement of the exhaust joins and copied his use of aluminium foil on them.
Posted Image
also I've added the thickening where the oxygen sensors go

(its made from the phillips screw covers from a bedroom unit)
made a start on the engine too. Added some weathering as well. Put a rule in the last pic to give an idea of the size of this beast.

Looks impressive :cool

I don't see a ruler anywhere in the last photo however. What I do see is that the two last pictures are the same. Can it be that you linked the pre-last picture twice instead of the one with the ruler?

Made a start on the exhaust valve and made up the spring hangers soon be ready for priming.

Hi all I've started weathering the exhaust I'm using Uschi metal powders and a combination of copper and blue grey dry brushed on, still more to do but it looks promising

Posted Image
Added some more engine details like the generator wires

Hi all well here is the first disappointment with the upgrade kit he supplies the steel beads to make the banjo connectors for various connections but then tells you to use poacher 2 millimetre bolts for the head of the banjo connector (there are none supplied in the kit only cross head screws) I realise Paul has built loads of poacher kits, this is my first so I don't have any poacher 2 mill bolts, what I do have though is these.
Posted Image
So onwards and upwards
Posted Image
I've made the springs for the exhaust too.
