Tbh it’s the worst part of the kit and as you say for a kit of this price that’s pretty bad, I will show how the kits part goes together and show how different it looks with the upgrade when I get it.
I was thinking this is getting very heavy and the exhaust is getting loose from the weight of it so I’ve temporarily added the forks to get the weight off the exhaust. I’ve finally finished the handle bars (well apart from the wiring)

wow that looks good, a kit with this price tag you should not have to buy upgrade parts, the ones you have put on are far better than the kit parts, doing a brilliant job looking forward to seeing more

Hi all this is how Pocher would have you build the rad
Image
Image
Of course I could just fill the holes and weather it and it would be a whole lot better
But with Ron Clark’s PE it will be a whole league better I just can’t wait for them to get here.

Hi all here is the next update I made a bit of an oops in duplicating the wiring of the rad fan which I had done the other end further back in the build will have to watch that in the future (especially as this build is using all my built up stocks of wire)
Image

Image
Image
Got the front wheel on (man this thing is enormous)

Hi all here is an update where nothing has been done. It's just that since the front wheel is now on I can compare and show just what a beast this is these range in scale from the humongous Duc at 1/4 then the Katana at 1/6 the Kwak at 1/8 and the Yam at 1/12 these all have similar size engines so they're all about the same size in real life.

having just built the 1/6th Honda Africa twin i can imagine the size of this duke i would imagine also it is starting to get a bit heavy, you doing a great job that radiator looks a lot better with the after market photo etch parts,

Hi all next update been adding the break lines and front mudguard then onto the electrical bits, it would be so much easier if I hadn't started adding detail, this is going to be the most intensive added details bit.

And the dreaded electric panel (this is just the beginning and only one side)

Hi all here is another update, all of the wiring here is added detail, none of it is supplied with the kit it makes a big difference adding it. I still don't understand why they don't supply it as 90% of the connectors are moulded and even the missing ones are easy enough to scratch build .
