Well guys, I said it had to be done BigGrin . Full kit is ordered through Tomick, so just awaiting parts. I am SOOOO looking forward to this build. As a MotoGP fan in general, and a massive Valentino Rossi fan to boot, it will combine two of my interests in one Love

More to follow.....

Ok guys, first parts have arrived and it's time to start the build BigGrin

All went together no problems, but one word of caution to anyone building this bike. The 2 Yamaha badges that go on the tank are moulded to the curve of the tank. Just thought i would point it out so no-one gets caught out BigGrin

Here's today's update:

Hi Alec,
You're right it does differ slightly. I bought this kit through a company called RC Expertise, trying to get ahead of the game. It is basically the US kit. It differs slightly the contents in packs 1 and 2 (basically sequence swapped round). The rest is the same though BigGrin. So far have received up to Pack 7. Awaiting delivery of the rest of the kit Drool

BigGrin Mick, Al, thanks for looking in and your comments. Always appreciated ThumpUp

In this update, we complete Pack 4, which builds up both sets of the exhausts, adding the Lambda probes. The next stage, Stage 15 finishes the exhausts, adding springs and the tail-pipe. We then build the cylinder head cover up in Stage 16, and make a start on the instrument panel.

This finishes Pack 4.
