Made a start on this awhile ago, as with the Brough I started with the wheels, first job is to drill a total of 80 1mm holes for the spoke nipples plus a couple of smaller holes for the air valves.

Next job was to mask off the outer part of the rim so the centre can be painted gloss black.

Gloss Black painted, Tamiya rattle can was used for this, saves getting the airbrush out!

The bit which I was dreading was applying the Red Decals, these are applied in 3 strips per side, after struggling with the first strip I decided to cut the strips in half which made them easier to handle. Still not entirely happy with them, but I think I can live with them :think:

Also made a start on the front wheel hub, a few of the parts needed.

Hole drilled through for the axle, quite hard to get it straight all the way through, mine wasn't :angry-banghead:

Image

This is far as I can go with the hub until the rim is spoked.

On to the engine, which is the first thing to be built if you follow the instructions, plenty of parts to be cleaned up and numerous different size holes need to be drilled for screws, rivets etc.

OXO cube for scale, its quite big!

As Mark says - A good start. And may I add a start I've been looking forward to. Those pinstripes look the part and the engine looks to be an absolute jewel.

All power to your elbow my good man.
