Re: Aoshima Kawasaki 900Z1

Slow progress. Dry fitting the rear wheel and swing arm to the frame. Noticed that it is not good to keep a model in box for eight years. Left side bolt for chain adjustment had broken, so had to replace it with a new. Also noticed that the reaction bar for the rear brake is missing, either I have lost it, or it has been missing from the beginning. Fortunately, it is just a plain bar, so easy to fix. Now I have been painting the unstripped chrome parts with Alclad, hope to show some results in near future.

Re: Aoshima Kawasaki 900Z1

All the parts are now painted, but quite a few still need to be glued on.

Re: Aoshima Kawasaki 900Z1

This is one of those rare model builds where the fact that this is a model is very difficult to discern. Even the metalflake in the paint seems in proportion.

Good job!
