    Great!!!!!! --You call THAT paper? This will definitely rock those pl*st*c modellers ^_^

    And also, nice work on the headlight, it really looks like it's been injection moulded ;)

    Thanks for sharing those pictures, pipy,

    It´s an incredible build. The dedication to detail is overwhelming - the handle bar controls and all the minute warning lamps and buttons are there just like on the real thing.
    I am also very impressed with the putty work and the ultra-realistic chrome paint on the exhaust pipes. What kind of silver paint do you use?
    I kind of thought that you had printed the motor parts on metallic paper.

    I like the look of your cutting mat - is has really been used . . .

    All the best from the North,
    Bengt :D

    Stev0, good shooting! i wanna a dunk next time:lol:

    about paint, i don't have spray gun & air pump, i used kinds of aerosol can within spray paint...they be good at apply to metallic effect~ like chrome.
    and also apply acrylic color with brush when paint the small parts and tyres.

    chrome effect spray paint:

    acrylic color

    about putty... it's epoxy putty, two kinds of ingredient required mix befor using.

    in fact, most of materials which i used were not special for modeling:wink:

    you can find both front and rear tread are already finished in the pics above, but in fact, the first rear tyre was burst when be ground.
    the elec grinder's rotate speed over ten thousand rpm, somewhere of the putty on the tread was too thin to grind, with huge friction, the tread was cracked. also due to the high rotate speed, the whole wheel burst:cry: :cry:

    after the tyre bust, i tried another way to build the rear tyre

    what is the name of this kind of paper? corrugated paper?

    MT-01 equipped the tyres with METZELER ME Z4 in manufacturer, unfortunately, YAMAHA haven't offer any logo/marker/data on side wall this time. i searched ME Z4's img on net, and figured the markers by myself...

    Yamaha MT-01 Motorcycle Model

    pipy,

    Here´s a little suggestion;
    You´ve just GOT TO send some of the pictures of your beautiful Yamaha bike model to the people at the Yamaha home page:
    http://www.yamaha-motor.co.jp/global/entertainment/papercraft/ultra/index.html
    I am absolutely conviced that they would like to display your build on their home page, to show what marvels that could be achieved with their
    MT-01 card model, if you put a lot of hard work and dedication to it.

    Good luck!
    Bengt :D

    What an excellent model Pipy!!!
    I have recently finished the MT-01 myself, but did not put anywhere near the level of detail that you have put into this model. Just doing the paper model as given took me about 170 hours. I hope it isn't rude of me to ask how many hours you have put in this superb example?

    Russell,
    thanks again:grin:

    Richy,
    thank you for your reply and please just feel free to ask:wink:
    i haven't really calculated, as a conservative guess it average out at three hours per day, so i suppose this model cost over 400 hours.
