Wayne's World

After winning the British 500cc title on a privately entered Honda in 1984, the Honda Factory gave the Woolongong Whiz a chance to prove himself on a Factory entered RS 500 (same as the NS 500) in the Australian end of year Swann Series. He won the series and a ride in the World Championships for the factory. He won the Championship in 1987.

Had a major stuff up yesterday. It will require some surgery but only after the tears dry up!

Now that's a great start buddy. No wonder you were very silent here.
Can't you give the tank a wash to get some definition on it?
For oil and grease I use this https://www.scalemates.com/colors/color.php?id=7668 Perhaps it could be used on your chain?
3. December 2018, 22:34
Peter Hardy
I've got some of that, ..... somewhere? Tank is unpainted as yet. Just glued, sanded and polished. I am not at all happy with the front of the fairing. More work to fix that! I might try filling with plastic again and letting it sit for a couple of days.
3. December 2018, 22:41
Spanjaard
you can do some wash with some oil colors too, take for ever to dry, but you can have any shade you want. and one tube will last for many many mamny models.... be careful with aggressive white spirits (almost eat away my NXR750). For the radiator, you can drybrush in black, and keep the aluminium color in the details. paint in back and do a wash in white for example.
by the way, about washes, i tend to use flory model ones.... impossible to harm the plastic with them. and they can be removed with water if you do not like the result.

I'll 'fess up here, this is one of two to go into the same display case. One with and one without fairings. Both will be clean and polished as in a museum display. I will build and paint two fairings and use the best one. Won't be easy to do as the colours are reversed from what is on the decals.

well done Peter

In short...............Perfection.
All I will say now is...............The decals will be brittle and possibly ready to shatter. Tons of sofftner and don't scrimp. Just load it on and WAIT for it to take effect. Remember your clear glue as a lubricant Peter.

Sometimes when the cover picture stays the same, I forget to browse the pictures. Just looked through these and I have to say I'm very impressed with the improvement of your skills.

Terriffic double build, Peter! How did I miss it?? Did you use real leather for the seat? Looks awesome! Going to follow intently, one of my next projects will be a motorcycle. I might pick up a tip or two
14. January 2019, 06:03
Bart Goesaert
looking really good like this... in pic 57, don't forget to sand the attachment points of the PE-parts... something you see all too often...
14. January 2019, 08:15
Peter Hardy
Geeze Bart you had me floundering then! The PE parts are the handle end of glue applicators. The exhaust springs are a HIRO stock generic item and the loop brackets are scratched together.

Alex, the seat "leather" is a vinyl off the shelf self adhesive sheet. I will PM you as I need some help with something and you are the only person in the whole wide world who can assist!
14. January 2019, 08:28
Bart Goesaert
Ok, thought they ware some protection grid for the exhaust...
14. January 2019, 09:04
Alexander G.
"you are the only person in the whole wide world who can assist" I don't know if I can carry this burden, Peter :D

Peter Hardy
Long way to go to sit comfortably under that title Lode. Kez has taught me so much but I have a long way to go. Still tearing up rice paper underfoot! I will make him proud one day though, I am determined to please my Master!
15. January 2019, 07:21
Kerry COX
Settle Grasshopper. ;)
Your so far ahead of all of us in so many ways.
I felt it was just your choice of paint that failed you in the finishing department, not your skills.
15. January 2019, 07:49
Spanjaard
i am sure you are pleasing Kezza already. but there somebody a lot harder to please.... yourself ;)
16. January 2019, 10:38
Peter Hardy
Still got the hard part ahead. I can't use most of the decals as they are reversed colours. Wayne's bike had blue on top with red fairing panels. Decals are reversed! We will see if I can pull it off or bury it next to the Kawasaki. Time will tell ......
16. January 2019, 10:45
Bart Goesaert
where's that like button when you actually could use it for once...
16. January 2019, 10:46
Kerry COX
Peter. PLEASE. Take extra care with these decals, because being as old as they are, they will just shatter if handled too much. Use all the softener you can and wait for it to take effect. I can't implore you enough on this matter.
OR, to protect them completly, spray a diluted coat of 'liquid Decal film' over the whole sheet and let dry.
Then cut the decal away when ready, cutting right up to the coloured edge.
Mine failed misserably, and that was years ago.
16. January 2019, 14:56
Peter Hardy
Thanks Kez. The kits are new, the decals are Cartograph but softening them sounds like an excellent idea. I'll give it a try and PM you with any questions. There will be hundreds!

Kim Branders
Nice Peter.
21. January 2019, 06:45
Peter Hardy
Thanks Lode! Not a Master anything yet, got some problems to solve but will admit to improving bit by bit. I have some cables on the way for the next bike but I have another "little" build and then back to the Bismarck!
21. January 2019, 10:42
Peter Hardy
Thanks Kim, much appreciated. Not many Mates comment on bike builds so yours is appreciated!
21. January 2019, 10:44
Bart Goesaert
you are right with the out of scale cables... but otherwise it is a gem.. nice paintwork too so far...
21. January 2019, 12:49
Laurent PEREZ
your work on this nsr is magnificent.
21. January 2019, 14:45
Spanjaard
Amazing job on those bikes Peter. simply excellent. about the cabling, i can suggest to check finishing shops. they have certain amount of wires, and in colors and various diameters. but you probably know that already.
how did you do the metal binders in the centre of picture 82 (the ones that hold the black pipe going to radiator)? they look real good
21. January 2019, 15:43
Kerry COX
I echo all the mates compliments and comments Peter.
Me lid I tip's. :)
As for the kit cables. I used the fine black vinyl tubing that fly fishing enthusiasts use to rig their fly's with. :) As I have done here. ;)

Peter Hardy
Bart & Kerry, I just happen to be going into town this weekend and I know where a fishing tackle shop is so I will be exploring their stocks!

Laurent, If I can achieve something like you have with your NSR I will be very happy!!

Jimbo, I know you aren't a fan of bikes but you don't have to be to enjoy the visible complexity of building them. The joy is most of the detailing you put effort into stays visible. Thanks for the wrap, appreciate it.

Spanjaard, BMF supplied by KC. I have bought some since but haven't actually used it yet. Kez warned me that there is an 'art' to using it and unfortunately I am not there yet! I still approach with enthusiasm but still feel like a klutz!!! Thanks for the positive feedback, I will surprise you one day with a well built pair of KR 500s!!
21. January 2019, 22:22
Spanjaard
I wonder what i was thinking when I typed finishing shops, instead of fishing shops :P
I am sure your KR 500 will be much better than the one I have, no doubt about it.
21. January 2019, 22:32
Martin Oostrom
Kapow! This is a work of art Peter. Best one yet. More to come, so even more potential for improvement!
22. January 2019, 08:32
Peter Hardy
That's a big call Marty! Too many imperfections in the paint for that but a big step forward for me nonetheless. Should be finished in a couple of weeks if I have a win with painting the fairing!
22. January 2019, 10:40
Spanjaard
remember that one when we comment on your builds, Lode ;)
22. January 2019, 23:03
Kerry COX
Very well put Lode.
Peter has all those qualities, and more. :)
22. January 2019, 23:51
Peter Hardy
Not to mention being so handsome!
23. January 2019, 00:17

His most endearing quality is his total inability to gracefully accept some well deserved praise.
You're doing great buddy, just accept it!

29. January 2019, 04:07
Bart Goesaert
Awful? Looks good. Maybe a small repair in the blue, but it's not An easy area, but otherwise great work with the tape
29. January 2019, 05:08
Peter Hardy
Chris and Bart, thank you for the positive comments. Getting a bit annoyed with myself with rushing to get a result I think. Welcome along Don, got a seat up here at the front mate, Marty will make a bit of room for you. Go get the Harley, but you'd better get some extra black gloss and chrome to cover your needs!
29. January 2019, 06:13
Martin Oostrom
Yeah, DD2 is here! Want some beer, nuts?
Pete, sit down and do your exercises. Breathe in, breathe out, puff puff puff! Calm down and fix this thing, we all know you can do it
29. January 2019, 07:03
Kerry COX
Right now, With the extreme heat wave conditions we are experiencing here. Spraying ANYTHING with any sort of paint is dicing with the devil, as most of the atomized pint would be bone dry well before it gets to the model.
Great work so far Peter.
29. January 2019, 08:03
Peter Hardy
I can get it right, that's why I am doing the testing. Been raining all day here and still not a puddle on the ground. The earth is parched! Kez, I'll put a few more pics up tomorrow morning with the Italian red on the seat unit. Lode? Stop pumping my tyres! They will explode soon! ;)
29. January 2019, 10:10
Kerry COX
I have been keeping my eye on the rain fall up there Peter and imagining just how green it will all look soon.
Looking forward to the pics mate. ;)
I am on the verge of building the Trumpeter 1/32 F-100D for the nationals in Melbourne. With all the bells and whistles too. :)
29. January 2019, 21:19
Chris Greathouse
Can you describe the process of how you did the colors on the pipes in pic #7. That is a very interesting look and great for the bike :)
29. January 2019, 21:25
Peter Hardy
Kez, if you're going to go, GO BIG! Our "rain" in Moranbah has been a 3 day scotch mist. No puddles on the ground but things are getting green. It'll burn off when the sun comes out though. Back to the four year drought!

Chris, the pipes have been painted entirely with Alclad II lacquers.
ALC-414 Sepia with no black base. It would be too shiny with a base.
ALC-411 Red
ALC-413 Blue
ALC-417 Violet

Each colour must have time to harden or it will blend with what's already there. Not what you want so in short, patience is required.
29. January 2019, 22:10
Peter Hardy
Do they get that hot inside????? This might be more appropriate. alclad2.com/finishes/transparent/alc-405-black-smoke/
29. January 2019, 22:15
Martin Oostrom
Exhaust gasses for a modern diesel reach 600 Celsius. Not sure about the heat requirement for generating super heated steam. AND the resulting cool down up to the funnel.
Wouldn't the paint on the exterior peel off as well?
29. January 2019, 22:18
Martin Oostrom
Wikipedia'd this. Firebox temp is approximately 2500C Superheater is approximately 1300-1600C. Haven't found exhaust temperatures yet. Temps are a bit higher than I imagined!
29. January 2019, 22:28

Oh my god, this one's also absolutely stunning, mate!

29. January 2019, 23:48
Chris Greathouse
Cool... and must be a difficult technique.... I'm blown away :)
30. January 2019, 00:10
Peter Hardy
Martin and Lode, I am pretty sure that the temp at the top of the funnel would be still hot but doubt it would be that hot to discolour the metal. If it was I doubt gunners would be manning gun mounts attached to the funnel.

Thomas, thanks for the encouragement mate. I have some issues as a builder which I am still to beat but some new skills are coming through. I hope I will one day be up there with you and KC!

DD II. If it isn't black it isn't a Harley. There aren't many Harley kits around so the choice is limited. I'm not a Harley fan but have a Road Train Driver here that wants me to build him one.
30. January 2019, 00:23

Well, that settles it. I think?

5. February 2019, 01:12

Thanks M M. All Alclad hot metal. There is actually four colours there. Sepia for the base, then hot metal blue, violet and red.

It's no masterpiece Lode but it is an improvement. It should be finished when I work out these HONDA decals + 2 weeks. Getting a hankering for a big German Battleship again!
13. February 2019, 03:51
Peter Hardy
My own worst critic maybe but so many many problems with what I thought would be simple reversal of colours! Too much handling of the model and too much damage with glues. But, .... :)
14. February 2019, 07:29
Bart Goesaert
everybody is his own worst critic... unfortunately... but it is still looking good...
14. February 2019, 07:39

So true! Started cutting out the HONDA from the blue background tonight. Won't know how I went until the decal starts sliding off the backing paper.
14. February 2019, 12:03
Martin Oostrom
After my extensive experience building Honda bikes (yes, the one), I can only say that I'm once more very impressed by your bike building skills Buddy. Sometimes a bit of stumbling improves the walking abilities. First walk, then run :) You are running quite fast

15. February 2019, 04:32

Looking good mate, looks like you got fuel in your fuel lines from the top of the tank in pic 107 or am I mistaken and my eyes deceive me.
15. February 2019, 06:04
Peter Hardy
No, your not being deceived. I have either been soaking clear tube in 2stroke mower fuel for 3 months or I bought some brown tube. Can't remember which! Lode, put your glasses on then look!
15. February 2019, 07:04
Bart Goesaert
thumbs up for the Honda cutting... becoming a real masterpiece. Haven't seen it in the other pictures, but one of the coolers in front has a mold-line which is rather prominent, the other one seem to have it removed (pic 65/107/10 8)
15. February 2019, 07:17
Kerry COX
Peter. I posted a whole lot of images of the micro tubing and sizes. These may be of help.

Ultra thin plastic tubing. | Album by RedRoo
15. February 2019, 09:05
Peter Hardy
Bart, yep you caught me! I decided not to redo it because it will be behind the fairing. It is prominent though. No one in this house will give it anymore than a casual glance and a cursory "Yes, very nice dear, will you take the rubbish out now please"? Why I live and die on things like his I dunno, unless you are a modeller you wouldn't actually notice! What I have struggled with on this build is excessive handling of the model and wearing the paint.

Thanks Kez, I'll google the brand and buy in some stocks! I also thought I'd look for some braided line. I did buy some Tamiya product but it was way oversized for bikes.
15. February 2019, 22:47

Jimbo, I need an arvo at your place, a few beers and a long talk on a subject dear to us both!
16. February 2019, 00:11
Michael Hickey
That's alright Pete, I was reading my online news articles this morning and there was one particular article I thought humorous, the headline read a tourist wanted to know the way to DRIVE from Sydney to New Zealand. You could read the article to get the directions and meet up with old Jimbo. ;)
16. February 2019, 03:23
Peter Hardy
Not a bad idea Mick. I'll take the company fourby just in case there is a water crossing along the way. Don't want to take the Patrol over there. It'd probably get stolen. Wanna come along and drink Jimbo's beer?
16. February 2019, 04:11
Martin Oostrom
Would be a nice trip. Can someone send me some directions as well? already have been to the Original zealand many times. The new one could be interesting ;)
16. February 2019, 05:01
Michael Hickey
Yeah shore mate, why not, I'm always up for an adventure, besides the more of us Aussie's at his place the quicker we'll go through his beer. Hear that Jimbo, you'd better start stocking up we're on our way. :D
16. February 2019, 05:29
Peter Hardy
Martin, just go to the beach and turn left. I'll be down that way somewhere.

I was over there a year ago for my honeymoon. Watched a bloke pour a bottle of Alka Seltza down a hole in the ground and all this water came spewing out. He called it a geyser. Think I'd rather have just stayed in Auckland and had a beer with Jimbo.

You should be very happy with what you have done with these two beautiful kits. If you photoshoped these in the pits down at Phillip Island I'd swear they'd look the real deal. Well done mate, no more complaining from you how your not a top notch modeler, your up there with the best.

The grasshopper has attained much in self discipline. ;)
Just what is going to satisfy you in the bike department now Peter. ?
I have seen some nice ones done by Hasegawa, especially the Rothmans Yamaha. ;)

A short break from the bikes Kez. However I am now the proud owner of 5 KR 500s so chances it could be one of them or, one of 5 NSRs or, Kevin Magee's 88 Jam Jar. Still got another NS500 too! Decisions decisions!

Thanks Bart!

Thanks Jimbo!!

Kim, let me know how the Meng kit works out, it looks interesting. Did you get the pre painted or the unpainted kit? Happy to encourage someone to try building a bike. They are so visible! You can't hide a flaw!!

Oh stop it Kerry, I'm all embarrassed! I want two sets of hands, two brains and two workspaces so I can build MORE kits! I LOVE MY HOBBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
