    Wow, that turned out really well. Great detail. All those cylinders must have been fun :)

    Finished I haven't even got the engine finished yet, but I've got all the parts printed. Looks like you did a nice job on it though.

    looks great ... I'm still not impressed with the wheels though. Not your fault but a scale of 1/5.5 should have at least come up with something better than that.

    Shoot some more pics :D

    Really really nice! A lot of work in this one, obviously. Lots of nice curves!

    Thank you for your kind words, guys. Sorry for the delay in replying, but it has been a busy weekend(!)

    B-Manic - fortunately only two (enormous) cylinders, but lots of fins on each. The engine alone is 147 parts on 11 pages, so it was good to get that out of the way first.

    rmks2000 - my model is 155mm long by 90mm high, 39% of the size as published. The funny scale is to make it the same as the rest of the Yamaha models, which I have constructed half-size.

    Stev0 - I agree about the tyres, though at my scale they are reasonably acceptable. As to more photos, did you look at my web site? I thought half a dozen pics from different angles would be more than enough for anyone.

    Crazy Potashman - "Lots of nice curves": are you sure you didn't mean the Pristontale Archer thread???

    Beautiful work, Alan!


    I was very impressed as I watched your fine pictures, and then, when I saw the last picture, I suddenly realized what scale you have been working in . . . I am in awe. An amazing achievement, indeed.

    Best regards,
    Bengt :D
