Day 69

Painted wheel hub and disc brakes with gold. Assembly looks fairly straight forward again, just the front wheel to make and fit along with the front fender. Starting to think about a display case, or the bin if the cowl keeps giving me problems!

Day 70

Stuck the wheel parts together and re-painted the inner discbrakes disc with gold. Looks good.

Day 71

Cleaned the gold paint off the nuts of the inner discbrakes disc, looks even better. Those cocktails stick have come in really useful.

Day 73

The last parts have been finally fitted. I must admit that I've been dragging my heels a bit, not wanting to finish too soon. Wondering whether there is any way of trying to improve some of the bits I'm not happy with. But I thought that I would probably end up making them worse. So it is what it is. I hope Tony would be pleased with the end result. I think he would smile if he new, as with all good build/rebuilds, there's a couple of screws and nuts left over. Overall I very pleased with the way it looks, it is just some of the spraying and the large decals that could have been done better. Anyway, time to look for a nice display case, and while I'm at it, check out a new kit?. something less demanding and with less bodywork to spray.

Display case.
