Tamiya Suzuki Hayabusa 1/12

This is my 1st model after taking a 7 year break from modelling, and its the 1st motorbike kit i've ever done. Its a 1/12 tamiya gsx1300r built straight from the box and i found it to be an enjoyable build.
I had some issues with the plated parts tamiya supplied for the bikes frame. When i glued these together the next day there was huge sink holes where the joint was! So i had to remove the plating and fill the holes which is why the frame is now matt black :P

Hope you guys like it.




Empty Tank!
