    Air Bubbles or not Robert, the most POSITIVE thing about it ALL is that you are AWARE of the minor mistakes & you LISTEN to whoever & that my Friend is Definitely a Great Modeller in the Making cheers

    As for any visible air bubbles that you're talking about, I'm sure that they can be eliminated in the next one with some more careful planning/execution maybe (as I am no car modeller & I don't know what you're talking about per se) Twisted Evil

    Again everything apart, the bike looks Awesome I love you

    Excellent work, try to take some pics in a natural environment and it will look very real. Well done! I think that you did an awesome job on a difficult colour scheme.

    impressive my friend!

    Impressive work my friend!!!!! Really lovely finish. Dont know about the air bubbles but as Ray said in his ?infinite wisdom what matters is trying to up your level with each model and you surely are managing with that!!!

    In my opinion the only detail which makes you realise it is a model in the last group of pics are the mirrors. I know painting glass is extremely difficult. We AFV guys like to use adhesive silver aftermarket mirrors specific to the model or maybe you could punch discs out of foil?

    Dont get me wrong I'm just nit-picking a really great model!

    Hope to see it live at the club!

    I use these products for mirrors...

    Post  Dottore on Fri May 03, 2013 11:11 am

    and they are awesome...

    Maybe they dont exist for motorbike models but possibly a set from some AFV would fit! I have quite a lot of sets so if you want we can try to match a set for your model!

    Great job nonetheless!
