This kit just arrived a couple of days ago.  A little too late to get it into the CB, so I'll start it's own WIP.

I'll start off by showing you the un-packing.

Thanks Al.  It's not until I started studying the instructions that I realized how advanced these bikes were for there time.

All of the parts for the first step which is the engine.  The main block assembled.






The heads



I stacked up the fins to see what it was going to look like

Nice one Paul..... they look to be well moulded white metal parts.

Will you be polishing the casings to a high shine? or going with traditional black?

Big part of the 'ton up' club back in the day, the cops ran a few Daimler SP 250s to chase them.

Thanks guys.

Be careful Ken, they can be addictive. And expen$ive.

Al, I'll be doing the traditional black.  


The two pieces that make up the frame.   Glued together, then with the tank in place.






I jigged up the heads and then the mounts for the frame.  The engine is hung from the frame and the rear swing arm is attached to the rear of the engine.  Very similar to what Ducati does with their superbikes.   But Vincent did it first.

Awesome work! I have almost zero experience with this sort of kit, it looks excellently involved and detailed. Looking forward to watching this
