Hello, guys. This is my first WIP in the forum, I just completed the last machine ridden by beloved Casey Stoner, REPSOL Honda RC213V.

I used a TAMIYA kit as base, and combined with K'S WORKSHOP trankit. the trans kit need so modification since the tank cover and seat are different from the 2013 type.

First, I did the clutch. I use Top Studio clutch set for 2002 RC211V, and combined it with the RC213V plastic parts.

Then, I started doing the cowlings.
I glued the front and side first, so I don't need the screw holes.
Also I puttied the place for side cowl little wings.

I changed the shape of tank cover and seat, to reproduce the Stoner's bike.
Though not 100% the same it's acceptable for me.

I also cut out some molds on the resin swing arm. The chain adjuster are different, and I planned to use some PE parts and detail-up shafts.

the original position of on board camera is too high, need modifications, too

The duct size on the side cowl also need modification.

I wanted to make movable chain, but there haven't been any products.
so I do it myself with RC211V sets, combined with some plastic parts from RC213V.

I used 0.4mm masking tape to do the heat stain.

The shape of Casey's wind shied is different from Marc's, so I heat pressed it.
