this is my next project it is tamiya`s 1/12th Kawasaki Ninja ZX-RR, the kit came with Tamiya`s front fork set, i have bought a detail up set, a chain set and a clutch set for it i have a wiring harness to make the clutch i have to make the cage and put the individual clutch plates in just like the real bike and the chain i have to make up link by link as well as other bits i want to put on like hex. and allen head rivets, it will not be an easy model to do i only hope that i am up to the build it will not be a quick build
hope to start in the next couple of days

Nice one Syd and I look forward to seeing this. Your bench is almost like the workshops of a Kawasaki dealership with all those additional parts :grin:

started on the kawasaki got the engine built and painted also put the clutch together and put it on the engine, i forgot to take pictures of it before i put it on hopefully you can see how much better than the kit part well worth doing i have also got the body work and frame together and filled and sanded ready for some primer i just got some electric plugs and wire to put on the engine and that will be finished for now once i got the frame painted i have a wiring loom to make up for it before i put the engine in

Great start Syd and that PE clutch assembly is something else, was it as fiddly to put together as it looks?

thanks guys the clutch was not fiddly at all it was easy just bend the cage sides up drop the clutch plates in i put a little super glue to hold the top plate in then a couple more plates on top of them you have to be careful here as it is easy to bend the cage sides but it looks a lot better than the kit part, working on the wiring loom at the moment

thanks guys got the swing arm painted, have put carbon fiber decal on the rear hugger (mudguard) and also on the paddock stand brackets
as well as a couple of small guards one moulded on the swing arm and another that wants fixing on i have also cut the rear chain adjusters off and put photo etch ones on there is the adjusting nut and bolt to put on them yet, next is a couple of days or so to make the chain up it is made up of individual links and rollers

here is the photo etch chain set you can just make out the individual links
