    1/6 tamiya gsx 1100, mad to the max

    Post  kpnuts on Sat Oct 29, 2016 8:57 pm

    Hi all well as some light relief I'm going to build this, obviously me being me it will look nothing like the box art and will be built  as relief from my other builds as and when I feel the need for a break, so build progress will be sporadic, trust me though I don't think it will be recognised as what it is when finished.

    Hi all here is the next update, I've lengthened the rear swingarm, quite pleased with it.

    Also dechromed the engine and sprayed it black, lots of weathering to do on this one, going to be quite a challenge as I don't normally do desert weathering.

    Hi all well I've weathered the engine and swing arm, I'm quite pleased with it as I've not done desert weathering before, needs a bit more depth but I think it's a good starting place.

    Hi all here is the next bit, done the front forks, can't decide whether to use the headlight fairing or not, if I do i will add more spikes to it, what do you think fairing or not

    Hi all well I've got the forks round the right way and added the foot pegs and a few other ancillary devices on the last leg now.

    Well I'm well peed off someone called brightlogic has posted this build on YouTube, no mention of me so I assume they're passing it off as theirs, they didn't ask if I was OK with it or not just posted the whole build, there's no area to post comments or I would say something like "oh thanks for posting my build, yes I was very proud of it myself" or something like that, what really pees me off is just not asking.
    Here's a link to it
