Hi all well I couldn't resist putting together what I have so far.

This thing is huge. This is a 1/6 bike with a similar size engine.

And it's heavy.

This is some kit, KP and you're making a great job of it. The 1/6th Katana certainly highlights the size!

Thanks mate I'm on a few forums and im surprised how little this kit gets any interest ( this forum shows the most inerest) it really is a great kit even without adding detail I can only assume bike kits are a niche mar9

Hi all I've started on the wheels I've made up the disks
Image
I've started weathering it
Image
Image
I've ordered some proper button head sockets for the disks instead of the screws that come with the kit (Another thing missing from the upgrade kit)

I don't think it the bikes, but the Pocher.
Price scares people off, also complexity, kit fit varies, and the little nuts on all the linkage, etc, aren't scale.
I know I struggled with one car and swore I'd not do another.

Don't let that stop you, you are doing very well.

I would agree with John; the price of Pocher kits is such that there is zero chance of me getting one even without the reported issues mentioned!
Your build is coming on excellently and I will continue to keep a watch on it as you progress

i agree with John and iggie the price of these kits prohibit me from building them you are doing a brilliant job of this one, i can`t believe how much extra detail you have to do to this kit seeing how much they cost looking forward to seeing more, i like the tank it looks good in blue i think this colour will suit it

I think bike and car kits are a bit of a niche interest, KP, certainly when compared to the sale of aircraft kits. Although I have an interest in both motorcycles and cars I never build them as models and I can't really explain why! Generally speaking the subject doesn't stop me from appreciating a good kit and great modelling when I see it and this is one of the most realistic kits that I've seen and you are doing a great job of it.

More great progress, KP. Is that awesome looking frame aluminium or carbon fibre on the full-size?
