First up are the dodgy instructions, seems someone lost half the original ones and substituted them with ones from Tamiya, which dont included the engine assembly, another day of head scratching :think:

Start of the engine, think I got everything so far the right way round :whistle:

The frame has also been built and painted, picture next time.

Start of fitting the engine into the frame.
Image

Image


Cylinders, cam cover plugs etc.
Image

Carburettors, airbox ready to be fitted after the cylinder heads have been put in position
Image

Must admit it was a struggle to fit the head, carbs and airbox into the frame, a few naughty words may have been mentioned :oops:

Here you can see the back wheel doesn't look very tidy as a result of the rubber tyre softening the plastic

Image

Luckily the front wheel isn't so bad, thats all for now, next instalment???
PS, Mark can you move this thread to the car and bike section please..
