Well I've spent 3 hrs trying to get the wing mirrors on this, I may never touch the bl$€y kit again don't believe the YouTube video it's nigh on impossible. I've removed the windscreen to give me more room but still can't get them on, I really don't know how this is still in one piece.

That sounds very frustrating indeed, KP and I would say leave them off but, typically for a modern bike, the mirror units include the indicators so I don't think that perhaps it would look right without them fitted, particularly as you are building a road bike rather than a racing machine. I hope you can figure a way of fitting them as this really is a great looking model.

Hi all well after lots of suggestions from people who have completed this kit I used a combination of their suggestions to do it I took my tamiya screwdriver which came with the tamiya bike kits (didnt want to use the one that came with the kit) broke the blade off
Image
Image
Cut the end off a pencil and drilled it out then glued the blade in, I now have a shorter screwdriver
Image
Image
Image
Now to modify the petrol tank to be removable and to detail it up. First get my hole punch select the right size
Image
Punch selected hole through self adhesive ally foil
Image
Add to ignition switch
Image
The two dome headed Allen screws on the outside of the ingition switch housing are glued in. I've drilled the holes they are supposed to screw into out so they are now locating pins, I will use the inner ones to hold the tank.
I've glued the ignition housing to the tank

Well done in beating those mirrors into submission, KP, this is really a fantastic looking model - take away the furniture in the background and the table top and I'd think I was looking at the full-size. That's an interesting looking punch - designed for use on leather?

Hi all this is how near I am to finishing this
Image
Image
Image
I've sanded down the centre rear tyre to take the newness off it and realised I've missed the decals off the centre hub and I've weathered it now is it too late to add them now.
I'm going to alter the side panels panels to make them removable.
Yep designed for leather.

Excellent looking fairing panels, KP. That blue really suits it - am I remembering correctly that it is actually a Ford colour that matches your car?

Awesome! A fantastic build that had been a delight to follow and has culminated in a magnificent finished product
