My Yamaha M1's MODEL BIKE (work in progress) 56K=no *update*

I thought I would share a few pics of my work in progress that were taken with the new camera I was given for Christmas (cannon powershot).

I'll update the thread as my progression goes.

Thanx,
Erik

Play some more with the settings. The camera should produce much clearer pics than that. Nice xmas gift!

Purchased at www.rocousa.com Click on Tamiya and then scroll down to find the motorcycles.

I'm waiting on the aftermarket logo kit (kit comes with go!!!!!!! as opposed to tobaco) to come in for it as well as the paint for the fairings.

I had it set on "flower" shot so it would focus on one item and blur the background :D

The kits were here when I got home from work on friday, and I've spent many hours during the holiday break working on them. Typically it takes me about 2-3 weeks during a normal schedule to build them (work mon-fri etc), I've just been lucky to have so much free time to spend building.

I really haven't read the book, I just know I hit a button and this flower icon pops up and gives me that effect.

Is that macro? LOL

Cant wait to see the finished pics. What color are you painting them? The Gaulioses blue or the Yamaha anniversary colors run at Laguna?

Nice work on your build up. Unfortunately I don't have the time to build models anymore. I've been collecting built up models, diecast and plastic. Minichamps have really nice 1/12 diecasts. I'm looking forward to Rossi's "Laguna" and "Valencia" YZR-M1. But the best detailed bikes are the 1/12 plastic models, like the one you're building. Tamiya offers built up models called "Masterworks", pricey but worth every penny. Take a look at the late Daijiro Kato's RCV (Sete Gibernau's teamate):



Notice all the body work comes off. . .beautiful. I also have Rossi's 2002 Repsol RCV, 2003 Valencia Repsol RCV, and 2004 go!!!!!!! YZR-M1 (the very same kit you are building).

Protar also offers built up models in larger 1/9 scale. These blow away Guiloy's diecast models in accuracy. Here are two of the four Protar models I have, the other two are Gibernau's RCV and Biaggi's Camel RCV (in the background).




Then there's my Minichamp MotoGP and WSBK collection in 1/12 and 1/6 scale. . . PLUS the car collection. . .

Thanks for all the compliments!

I am going to paint them the yamaha blue, one with the go!!!!!!!!! logo and the other with the Gauloises logo. I had to special order the Gauloises logo, as the stock kit does not come with any tobaco logos. If they had a kit for the Valencia or Laguna scheme I would definitley paint them.

The kit themselves are pretty cheap, around $24-$30 online. It's all the stuff you need to build it that gets expensive (compressor, airbrush, paints, supplies etc).

Those Mater Model bikes are very nice. I believe they sell for around the $70 range. Very detailed, very sharp, very flawless.

My toys. All of them came from Wal Mart except the RC51. They were only $1.97 each, but they NEVER have an RR.
I have
RC51 Ben Bostrom
Ducati 999s & 749s
MV Augusta M4
Yamaha R1 & R7
Suzuki GSXR-600 and 1000
Kawasaki ZX-10
Honda 600F4

These are NOT models.

I had a large number of these Maisto 1:18 scale bikes. The motorcycle collection became too ridiculous. The wife was beginning to frown. They all sold on eBay. In fact, the last one's on eBay are Rossi's RCV's and YZR-M1, Gibernau's RCV, Checa's YZR-M1, and a Ducati 998 street bike. Plus a few of New Ray 1:12 scale WSBK and MotoGP bikes which are really nice for the money, like Nicky Hayden's RC51. New Ray does make Miguel Duhamels' Formula Extreme 600RR. And, Maisto does make a 1:18 scale street 600RR.

You should've put them up for sale on this forum 1st! I know a bunch of us (including myself) would've picked up most, if not all from you!

Check out seller "chigama" on eBay and let me know if you see anything that you like! I'll end an auction if you want anything.

moeman, those are awesome. Where do you get yours? I have been wanting some MotoGP bikes, but most places they are too expensive.

I had Tamiya models when I was younger, the detail was awesome - tyres had correct tread patterns and sidewall markings and all that. I don't have the time or patience for them now - prefer to build real ones :icon_lol:

Just got the 1 1:12 at the moment, no introductions needed.




One of my mates has some monster models, maybe 1:8 ?? Rossi's Nastro Azurro NSR and the M1 too, I've no room for anything like that.

Not seen an RR I like yet, we only get the yellow one in the UK it seems

The lad who painted my RR has a small display case at work of 1:18 racers with the paintjobs he did on the real ones.
