    Tamiya 1/6 Honda CB 750 F

    Post  kpnuts on Sat Sep 05, 2015 6:08 pm

    Hi all here is one Ive been working on for a while, this is the latest update on this kit, I had a couple of errors pointed out to me, one of them blindingly obvious the rear sprocket should be on the rear wheel so I've sorted that and of course the tank filler hole should be taped up to hide the bit you are supposed to attatch it to the bike with(not there on the real bike)





























    now I know the overall size of the bike I am going to try and build one of those bike ramps you see in workshops nowadays.

    Hi here is a small update on this

    obviously these exhaust flanges would not have the lge locating flange on the back they would be a sliding fit over the down pipes and would pull the downpipes up by the flange on the downpipe, so they needed drilling out.









    Made a rack for the exhausts

    Hi all on the last leg with this one, the bike itself is nearly finished, I am attempting to scratch a compressor, which of course would then involve trying to scratch a 1/6 spraygun, still trying to make convincing socket set(you may notice I've made the socket wrench) definitley on the last leg though (may have to make some shelving for the stuff that's laying around on the floor, it looks a very messy workshop which would fail any health and hygiene inspection.

    Hi all started on the compressor, and as you can see the mechanic is properly shod now.

    Nice work but compared to the rest of your excellent detail, i think that the air compressor is a bit crude. Needs some more work. And i would loose the doll. other than that i think it is really great.
