Re: Gunze Hi-Tech BMW R69

I love the looks of this bike (and model)!
I guess it's very joyful to build such a model.

It is actually very frustrating. The model design is very poor, and I'm having really hard time putting it together. Nothing fits, not a single partfits as it should. Instructions are vague at best, and I had to fabricate few parts from scratch just to continue building. I would not recommend this kit to anyone :-) There.

That, I was not expecting it!
Thanks for letting me know.

Kudos for such a beautiful build in these conditions!

Re: Gunze Hi-Tech BMW R69

All right, time for another update on this one guys.
I have done this few months ago actually, only now realized that I have never posted pictures....
Bike is still not quite done, but there are only few minor things left.

Real bike that I'm making a replica of has Denfeld seats, so I had to scratchbuild the seats. Used Tamiya Epoxy putty to create a raw shape, then carefully shaped and sanded then to make them look like the ones on the pic. They are not 100% match, but it was hard to make them without proper dimensions.





Then the seats were primed, masked, and sprayed with Rust-Oleum textured paint to replicate the texture of the real deal:




Painted seats. Still need a coat of flat clear on them, and few other things, but I think they look rather close.

oooh, they look super! Very nice work, a Denfeld script and we'd be looking at an 100 % match.
