    [​IMG]

    not sure about the scale?..i ran it through software and enlarged by 150%
    Ive changed it slightly.. on this pic you will see the rear sprocket is actually cut out to shape(had to be modified) also have made fresh parts so i can make some of the original parts double sided(so you can't see white paper)

    the complete re-scale file is available is anyone wants it (to have a go building) F.O.C of course just drop me a mail if interested.. and comments and questions welcome

    Hey, the model looks great! I look forward to following this thread. I was wondering what software you used to rescale the model as I was thinking of enlarging the scale of the new MT-01 model, but can not figure how to do it for the life of me. Any help would be appreciated.:grin:



    P.S. I would love a copy of your rescaled bike if it's not too much trouble:grin: :grin:

    Mt-01

    the MT-01 is under going re-scale as we speak .....have started some assembly but not a lot (half a cylinder head)
    :cry: i did take a pic but its not good quality:cry:
    its a harder re-scale for me cos its already a larger scale than the other yamaha models....
    again if i complete the re-scale i will make file available (somehow!!)

    added rear shock and part of the carb assembly

    and for all those interested......
    the re-scale process on the yamaha bikes takes me about a week of hard work stuck at the p.c desk then usually takes a lot longer than that to build because i find faults with the original parts , so some have to be remade ....

    anyway what the heck :)grin: nuffin better to do:grin: )
    The YZ450FM is the only complete re-scale i still have on file but if anyone out there wants one of the others doing i'm sure i could fit it in somewhere...

    just drop me a quick note

    That's going to be a magnificent beast when it's done. Keep up the good work.

    My taste swings the other way (!). Up to now all my Yamahas have been at 50%, but I'm attempting the MT-01 at 39%, so as to match the others in scale. Am I crazy?

    Absolutely not, just different. I can never get these big bits of paper looking clean and smooth, so run away from them. Anyway, keep those photos coming.
