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.
