Nice work Daran, the colour looks good. Will you be building this OOB or maybe adding a bit of wiring or extra detail here and there? Cool ThumpUp

Yeah it's not the best for fit!LOL LOL It has been a few hours of constant file and sand and dry fit before even looking at glue, and then a bit of filler here and there. But it should turn out ok.BigGrin Cool

I quite like the green in your mock-up photos, but i guess it's not authentic?

I do like the look of this kit Love

Thanks for looking in.BigGrin
The green you see is the plastic colour, and not authentic. There is a big myth that everything the Allies had on the ground was the same olive drab, and it is as far from the truth as you could get. There are about 40 different shades of olive drab used in WWII. The colour I am using is based on the actual colour Triumph painted them from the factory, I spoke to owners at bike shows and meets and have quite a few reference photos to help me.BigGrin Cool

Rear frame, fuel tank and gearbox are painted, the gearbox is a dry fit as I need to paint the mount and it also need some adjustment to fit in the frame properly. Tank and frame will now get a klear coat.Cool

Lovely work as always Daran, you're moving along quite well with this build and I know it'll look very cool when finished.

Well done mate, keep up the good work. Drool ThumpUp
