As an aside, I’ve got a selection of bolts, and nuts with washers cast from resin. Eastern European manufacturers and they are very nice, but need painting of course.

I see that Top Studio have just started selling a range of metal bolts too.


The resin ones are made by MasterClub. Aimed at the armour market, but bolts is bolts. Unfortunately there are no cap head (Allen) bolts in the range.

The Top Studio range have some dimpled hex bolts, but they are metal, and much more expensive.

Found the MasterClub resin bolts thanks Mark, a lot cheaper than the plated brass. I think I have used 10 hex bolts and 4 nuts up to now that I had originally got for the Ferguson Tractor, hope I have enough left :roll: I used three on the side stand, wish I added a spring now :think:
I did some work on the exhaust assembly but still unsure about the Tamiya weathering master burnt red :think: I wanted it a bit darker around the edges. I don't have any red or brown Ink so I left the assembly dry fit for now. I think I will change the radiator pipe on the right side of the bike as well, its stiff and won't bend without kinking unless you put wire inside it :think: but I do have some fishing tube somewhere thats softer. The tyres need cleaning :roll:

Some areas of the fairing need some work before primer

Thanks guys :)
after a sanding session I decanted some Tamiya primer (why can't you get this stuff airbrush ready :think: ) and gave all the parts a couple of coats.
One or two areas will need attention but I'm really pleased how the front wheel guard came out.

:lol: Thanks Mark, the parts have been cleaned up now and primed ready for the black. I have decided to use Tamiya X-1 Black instead of the Zero Black its too smelly for indoors even extracted :snooty:
