Thank you Sam

I'll start off the finished jobbies with this

Finished as a civilian version ..
scratch built parts ... all cables, handlebar levers, exhaust downpipes, carburetors and pipes, wooden rack and bed rolls, chequer plating, padding and mat for sidecar, speedo, headlight lens is PVA built up in layers, helmet (Korean soldier head drilled out and reshaped a bit)
goggles came with the kit but thought it would be a nice touch.



















and standard scale format image

Wow, so much detail for such a tiny build. Great work. I can't imagine how small that is, I have a 1/24 scale GP bike and it is crazy tiny.

Mine is done now too.

The conversion from road bike to racer was straight forward as for the most part it entailed leaving parts off rather than adding parts. (Mudguards, lights, speedo etc).

One part that had to be added though was the race number board. The stem was made from the unused kick stand and the board from a piece of flat styrene not shown anywhere in the instructions.

I also had to modify the race handle bars to get them to fit too.

The kit supplied 'cables' are somewhat oversized and may be replaced for something more in scale when I get my hobby room back up and running.

That looks splendid, brings back memories of a mate blatting one of these round cadwell and donnington.

Excellent finish and conversion work, I must admit I like the black frame better than the tacky looking red one... Looks classy.

Top job Al.

Black frame works.  Lovely little racer, evocative of good days of long ago, thanks!

Top job Al.

Colin, research on the web seems to show that all the road versions were painted gloss red while all the 'R' versions were satin black.

The exhaust pipes too are a bit weird with this one.

The box art shows a single pipe on the right in satin black and red frame. All the photos I've seen on the web have two chromed pipes. The instructions show only one pipe (non-chromed) installation which leaves an open port on the left!!!!!

All of the 'R'' versions have twin pipes in satin black.

Aoshima supply one pipe (right side) in plain styrene and twin pipes in chrome.

Go figure!!! LOL

Nice job on the little thing, Colin. I know what you're dealing with.

Al, I love the looks of the engine and the rear shocks, really nice. Great job.

Here's the completion of my Zundapp KS750.  

It reminds me of an old friend from my steel mill days.  As a Jewish teenager, Paul fled his home in Austria in 1937.  All he had was his Zundapp belt drive motorcycle and a knapsack.  One of the best chessplayers I ever played.

I added Brake cable, transmission control shaft, headlight lens, speedo bezel and face and a little BMF.























A great quality kit, indeed.

I only posted two minutes ago that i was looking forward to the photo run and here it is as if by magic lol.

This is a splendid little build, hard to believe its your first to be honest.

Seem to be more little details on this model, i had to scratch build most of it on the BMW.

And i know i've said it before but it does look nice in red!!

Mike, you'd never know this was 1/35 without the size comparison, good stuff.

Number two all done ....









I cut and reworked the bars from ape-hangers (pull backs) to a low "T" bar look
















Had to give it an old school flame
