1/6 Tamiya'K' CB-750 Candy red.

The honda four CB-750 went through many changes, especially with the cosmetic look and some changes in the display /dash lights, and the first bike was designated the 'K' series, followed by the changes denoted as K1, K2, K3 and so on, but the first production model (K) had all the warning lights mounted in the tacho and speedo instruments and these were mounted on following bikes with the lights on a small display unit that was part of the handlebar mount set up.

I didn't know of this upgrade - would be good for mine. Is this kit still available?

I would have loved to see a 1 cent coin in picture 6...

Bilbo. Your wish is my command.
Will an American one cent coin be the scale that can do the scale of the links justice. ?
And Paul, check this link out for the 1/6 scale models by Tamiya. ;)

Hey, I'm not bigoted towards foreign currencies... ;)
Edit: the 1 cent 1886 "indian head" coin is worth much more than 1 cent though...
Edit 2: I'm quite impressed with you chain!

John D, Thank you my friend. ;)
I wish I could find a great silver paint that goes on thin and doesn't 'powder' up like it's billions of silver particles all trying to reach the surface. ! :(
I am seriously thinking of the AK Interactive 'true metal' wax paint from the tube that is buffable as you apply it. ! As I have to be sure that the Tamiya clear red I want to use, (Candy red) will hold on to it and not flake or chip off after time. :-/
3 attempts at getting the silver down but had to remove each attempt due to poor quality of the finish, wanting a high gloss with little paint but none I have tried have worked so far. The tungsten silver looked like a porcupine. !
If I use the testors buffing metalizer, the clear red from Tamiya goes all brittle and cracks and flakes after a while. !
He hehehehehe. ;) Wish me luck. !

Is it a smooth high gloss finish. ? And the last thing I need is the 'orange peel effect' from paints that don't get time to 'lay down' like enamels. As the lacquer paints I have used by Tamiya dry way too fast and are not as smooth as I am used to. :(
Any advice in this area. ?

You should try Model Master Chrome Silver Enamel paint, it is really smooth with no silver particles visible. I've used it as base coat on some my bike models, looks great with Tamiya Acrylics over it.

Valters, Thank you for the tip and I just so happen to have found in my paint locker some of the Model Masters silver you are referring to. ;)
As good as the testors (same mob) buffing metalizer aluminium plate. :)
Thanks again for all your help lads.

You could tie down the great wolf Fenrir with this kind of chain... ;)

Looking great as a model - for the motorcycle... well, it definitely does seem to be one! :)
