How does that rear tires stay inflated with so much of the bead missing on the wheel?

Excellent work. The weathered wheel is amazing - really looks like broken metal! Awesome modeling.

Re: Yamaha YZF-R1 - Tamiya 1:12 [STUNT BIKE]

Side bars made of aluminum plates 0,5mm thickness











There are several imperfections of Tamiya kit
this is one of them



Cover of the sprocket near the engine is almost hidden behind the frame and in fact should protrude





construction does the job, engine is safe

Re: Yamaha YZF-R1 - Tamiya 1:12 [STUNT BIKE]

Thanks guys!

I did't plan to do decal with sponsors but a colleague Miguel suggested that will do it for me.
A few pictures from the formation of decals





Thanks Miguel!

Re: Yamaha YZF-R1 - Tamiya 1:12 [STUNT BIKE]

At the lower fairing on the photo you can see that such elements are used to assemble the two halves together







I thought I would try to do something similar.
I used a brass plaque



at this moment fairing are painted with gray and white primer and then painted base color
