    So.....here's my new project. After building the original R1, I had this idea on the back of my head about a streetfighter based on the R1. I was halfway through Claudio's Bumble bee when I decided to sidetrack to this one! I've made some progress in the last coupla weeks but here's what I have in mind; Aggressive color scheme, rear seat cowl, single sided swing arm and transparent wheels, all you can see from the pictures. I also redesighned the tail but it's not complete yet, Exhaust will be updated to have a single tail. The fairings will have to go to get that bare bones look and thus I will have to come up with a new head lamp (I'm thinking two lights on a bikini fairing but haven't decided yet). Still it looks a bit rough without the details but here's the progress so far. Any thoughts :) ?

    Uh huh, These are also my introduction to papercraft. Simply love em. As you can see, the front end is still in the pipeline. You'll see a custom face that I camr up with without all the fairings on the original kit!

    Thanks Todd. Just glad it's all tied up! Now I can start on the Aston Martin. Won't have to paint every part of it this time :)
