A nice result Clay.

The Hasegawa kit has the air box screen molded as a solid piece topped with a decal. The Top Studio parts change the look considerably. The frame has been painted per the instructions, but I can't say I like the look of it. The instructions called for Mr. Color #90, Metallic Silver.  The engine has been test fitted and all looks well. Now it's time to add the Top Studio details to the frame and add the carburetors to the air box. I am hoping the many detail parts will mask the overall look of the frames' finish.

Rather than leave well enough alone, I have continued adding the smallest of the photo etch, in this case bolt heads and other fasteners for the various seals. Also, the sensors and electrical connections have been added. Next is the rear portion of the frame, more electronics, and finally the wiring.

I purchased a set of premium tweezers for this project. They have proved invaluable. I have yet to lose any of these small parts(fingers crossed).

Cheers Gary and Clay.

Continuing with the fiddly bits; in this instance, guides for the many wires and cables.

Paul; if you have nothing better to do, you can browse their web site. Top Studio Detail Up Parts main page

Before continuing with the cabling/wiring I will have to add more kit parts; namely the body work, exhausts and swinging arm. These will also be benefiting from Top Studios' detailing parts.

One part of my build is currently at a standstill as I wait to receive the detail parts I ordered. I am currently working on the tensioners ? for the rear axle. Also, the gas tank has been painted and decals applied. The tank has many compound curves, but the Cartograf decals went on beautifully. Now for some polishing and a final clear coat.

As I'm waiting for the drive chain set, work on the fairing is proceeding. At first I was unimpressed with the livery on the box art. But now that it's coming together I think it looks pretty darned good. I am really pleased with the initial result of painting the fairing and tail section. Now it's time for more decals.

Thanks Mike.

I have said it before and I'll say it again; Cartograf decals are second to none. Hasegawa calls for the body work to be painted Mr. Color 8 Silver. I chose Tamiya spray Gloss Aluminum instead. I believe it is a much better match for the metallic decals on the upper fairing.

Unfortunately, I have experienced a minor disaster. In spite of the frustration and humiliation, I will share it with you.

The paint scheme calls for the upper portion of the fairing to be painted black. My plan was to clear coat the decals, mask, paint and quickly remove the mask.

When I clear coated the decals they immediately wrinkled and crazed. I am not sure why it happened. Mr. Mark Setter and Mr. Mark Softer were used. After a couple of days drying time I shot the clear coat(Tamiya Clear). Only the decals on the upper fairing were affected in this way

Really sorry Cole, its incredibly frustrating when something like this happens. New set of decals possible?

I'm still mulling over what to do about the fairing decals, and the chain set is taking forever and a day to arrive. So I thought I would lose myself in some detail work, namely, the rivets on the exhaust cans. The money I spent on a pair of high quality tweezers has been well worth it.
