Hi all well as some light relief I'm going to build this, obviously me being me it will look nothing like the box art and will be built  as relief from my other builds as and when I feel the need for a break, so build progress will be sporadic, trust me though I don't think it will be recognised as what it is when finished.

Great kit, Ken! Have this in 1/12 as well as I had the Katana in 1:1 - sold it 3 Years ago.

...probably you go for a Custom Tuned Bike(no 14065)

Btw: are you member at ATF?

I am but not been there for a while, I look in occasionally, but no one on there is much interested in what I do (i never really do as the box says, and some people don't really like that)

Ken, understand you very well!
Have my Problems there with restricted rulez and the guy who care about it. Ist a kind of censoring, always deleting some parts of posts or remove it all.

Anyway I'm looking foreward to your build of my beloved Katana

Hi all here is the next update, I've lengthened the rear swingarm, quite pleased with it.

Also dechromed the engine and sprayed it black, lots of weathering to do on this one, going to be quite a challenge as I don't normally do desert weathering.

As I said, I'll follow! Great work Ken. This scale and the dtails looks fantastic, think I have to go for it when I have a chance of getting this kit cheap. Reminds me of many hours of screw/unscrew all those bolts when repairs were needed....
And btw: the weathering looks quite realistic.

Thanks, glad you like it, they really are great kits, I've seen the Honda 750 on eBay for 45 quid it's a great kit and a lot of plastic for the money.

Well I'm well peed off someone called brightlogic has posted this build on YouTube, no mention of me so I assume they're passing it off as theirs, they didn't ask if I was OK with it or not just posted the whole build, there's no area to post comments or I would say something like "oh thanks for posting my build, yes I was very proud of it myself" or something like that, what really pees me off is just not asking.
Here's a link to it

I don't know how I missed your build but I love it. The apocalypse is one of my favorite genres and so your build really caught my attention. Excellent work and it definitely fits right in with the Mad Max type of vehicles.

Great job.

Thanks,
Randy

PS. I tried to go and watch the video posted by the thief but it shows that it is no longer available. Guess the guy didn't like getting caught lying and taking credit for your work. What a cowardly dick!!
