    Please feel free to give me any advices or if you notice something i didn't ^^

    Wow! That is some really clean work! Amazing! I can't tell from the pics if you colored the edges of the cooling fins, but that would be the only comment, but on that bike, they also came with black cylinder heads with unpainted edges, and some other variations, you could do nothing or anything. That has to be one of the best fin spacing and assemblies I've ever seen! Not one seems to be out of place. Don't drop it, those fins are hard to fix! I've had to Tig Weld a few of them. :)

    You're doing good. Your care for precision is visible and with some more experience you can do great models. Definitely great start for complicated models.

    I am currently busy with the V-MAX of which the wheels, engine and the stand are complete.
    I am busy with the chassis and there is only one thing that I can say is that the model is going to take a LONG time to build, I have been going at it for about 3-4 months now and I am about 3/4's of the way with the chassis so.....

    it is looking good.

    That's it !
    You can see there's some space left between the parts of the base (did my best to leave less space possible). but in the end i think it turned out pretty good.

    I'll make the side covers and put some pics and after i'll put this project on the side just to let me finish waiting project (like the A-Wing :p)

    So stay tuned and as usual i'm all opened for advice and comments !
    Thx

    I bet you could sell that engine, I'm not kidding!! If this is an indication of what is coming down the road, you have a winner on your hands! :)

    Great job, fantastic, actually. The fins are perfect. Those being off can kill a model !! :)

    I want to build one of these. I have been thinking of using Liquid Electrical Tape for the wheels. When it dries, it looks just like rubber. :)

    Model is looking good, the wheels on the mt-01 is a bit different to the v-max in that it has tread pattern as the v-max does not. I can say one thing about the frame take your time with that, in the end it will be worth it.

    I am going to continue with my V-max, I have been busy at some other project of mine that I have been delaying for quite sometime. but now with out of the way, time to get the handle bars done.

    again it looks good.

    I am building a 1975 Honda CB400f, in 1:1 Scale. it is taking me some time, and it is made of metal, but I will be able to ride it. :) It looks very much like this, and has this engine, which is very rare. I am looking for a suitable modern day suspension to graft onto it. Mine has the full blow 458 cc X3 Engine, and the hand bent dyno tuned exhaust, custom made smooth bore carbs by Kazio Yoshima himself, and gold anodized aluminum D.I.D. rims which I laced. I was clocked at 135 mph on this bike. I was much thinner at that time. :)

    That is a sweet bike, hope it goes well. I've loved Hondas my entire life and all my bikes were Hondas. Unfortunately, my disability made me give up riding, but I still keep my bike cert on my license. Now, if I can just get my dad to get his VTX running.

    I have no business riding bikes, but still do. I was involved in a bad industrial accident. I have over 300,000 miles of motorcycles. I also have around 220 hrs. of solo time in a Piper Warrior. Sometimes, you do have to give things up though. I used to sail 10 meter boats. I loved sailing but just stepping on a 10 meter boat makes my back go crazy. I purchased that Honda CB400F new, as I did my GS 750 ESD (made only 1 year) and that I still ride at least every week. I don't see the writing on the wall for bikes yet. I did for flying and sailing, though i plan to build an open hull day sailer with my son, maybe even a proa! :)
