Lovely jubbly. The only thing I would point out, Syd, is I think the side panel RD350 logos should be straight rather than parallel to the striping. Certainly on both of my two machines that was the case and I don't recall seeing other LC's with sloping logos as per your model.

thanks guys, you are right about the lettering on the side panels Shaun they should be straight i thought they were until i put them on the frame i must have been holding the panels wrong when i put the decals on, it is to late to do anything now as i lacquered over them, i have finished the model now, the only detailing that i have done is cut the moulded bolt heads off the top of the engine and the frame and made new ones and put on, i have covered the seat in leather look cloth and put some piping on, cut the air valves from the wheels and put after market ones on,made some cable guides and fixed to the front mudguard, put bmf. on the front forks the rest of the build is as per instructions

Very nice Syd. The leather look seat is a beauty.

Well done Syd, up to the standard we expect. Amusingly, the 350lc was quicker and 15mph faster than my contemporary xj550.

thanks guys i enjoyed building i, just something i forgot to mention i slit some of the thin tubing that comes with the kit and glued it around the fairing and windshield instead of painting it, it sort of looks alright but might struggle with a tight bend
