SUZUKI GSX1300R HAYABUSA - Tamiya 1/12

Hello!
This is my first post on this forum My name is Tomasz and I'm from Poznan, Poland. I build cars and bikes from about 3 years.

Now I'm working on Tamiya's Hayabusa. I'm going to add some extras to the kit:
- Crazy Modeler photoethed set (disk brakes, radiator mesh, chain with sporcktes etc.)
- aluminium valves
- screws and nuts from T2M
- silver/blue Zero Paints (box art picture)

Kit:


I'm waiting for extras I bought from Hiroboy

I started with "chrome" and body parts:



Engine. I glued and sanded the main parts. I also remodeled the starter using 6mm aluminium tube and thin round profiles. Now it looks more reality. Also I drilled some holes for T2M screws.








I cuted plastic hoses from a water pump to replace them made from soldering wire.



I grinded front of the frame to add new polistyrene parts to the head tube.







I filled the swingarm inside:


To be continued...

Sorry for my poor English...

Disc brakes are almost ready. I glued them and put on Tamiya's handy drill and wear a little...

Yes, but a little

I started working with fairings and cowlings. First I applied grey primer (Guzne Surfacer - 2 coats). Then I painted gloss black (Gaia) overall as a base for silver (Zero). After that the rear fairing and fender I coverd with blue - also Zero.



After paints dried I covered all parts with gloss lacquer (Gaia of coure ). I pasted masks and applied blue again.




I separated radiators and add some potoetched mesh and hangers/brackets? made by myself.





Replaced rear suspension spring - with correct coils - made from 0,7mm wire.



A little upgraded throttle body...



... now is put on the engine... I added some hoses and wires and replaced all the screws/nuts (T2M).








...and engine to the frame






To be continued...

Re: SUZUKI GSX1300R HAYABUSA - Tamiya 1/12

Here's a little update

I made a license plate holder from a 0,2mm brass sheet:




I'll replace these screws by T2M with allen trapered rivets.

I've also decided to add lights to the bike - front, rear and turn lights. I'm gonna use this stuff:





For turnlights I use SMD diodes (the middle one).

So I prepared parts for it:




I'm also working with chain and sprockets... there're a lot of work to do... many (I think over 120) links to remove from PE spure and then put on the chian



I've almost finished fairings and cowls.



I have to sand them with 4000/6000 Micromesh paper and then overcoat once again.

Which one should I choose???
