I'm sorry to give only now an answer to the comments. :oops:

But thank you for your feedback! :D

I feel that I can improve even more at the photo session...

or similar. You could do the whole bike in 20 minutes.

BTW, it is a very nice build. I have that one in the pile along with all of the aftermarket.


Thank you for the tip to the aftermarket product I'll buy it!
I bought/won this kit on a ebay auction the seller put as used, but he didn't refer that it were with all aftermarket... It was a very good surprise for 30 euros included shipping costs! 8)

To fix on the kit that's a pain to me I needed at least 4 hands! :mrgreen:

I almost purchased the rivet detail set made for your Honda to use on some of the F1s as they are some of the best turned parts I have ever seen! Oh well...


I agree with you they could do "Details Sets" not only to the F1 cars, but to others 1:12 cars, also.
It would be a must! 8)
