Re: Yamaha XV1600 - Tamiya 1/12

this looks bad ass!
I have some questions...how did you do the silver over the black on the engine? it looks perfect! Does the engine attach to the frame with screws?

Keep up the good work.

Re: Yamaha XV1600 - Tamiya 1/12

What a coincidence! I started building the same kit some months ago, and did the same thing with the wheels. Only that the model I took is from the HD Fatboy.

Yours look much better... Can't wait to see the bike built.

H-h-h-holy shit. You are a master with that paint. Your Ducati was insane but this is even worse. That surface is so perfect.

This Night Star is going to be a diamond in the night as shiny as this paint is! Every bit of it is looking good!
