neil kerr Right here we go. This is the rarest model I have the instructions are superb with loads of tips about weathering. So this is my first attempt at dry brushing any advice?

neil kerr All I have to worry about now is the decals, they are so old I am afraid to try and apply them

Steve Wilson Stuning build neil...
The tank somehow looks so much better now, perhaps because it's all put together ;)

Steve Wilson Hi neil...
On looking at your profile I found this build.
When you asked me my thoughts on the KR500, did you mean your model???
Or the real Bike???
I thought you meant the real Bike, but... Anyway!!!
Excellent start neil.
Couple of points, that Engine is gorgeous neil, the metal appearance is spot on.
Are you using Alclad 2 for your metal painting???
If not, I can highly recommend their POLISHED ALUMINIUM for the tank.
It's the best representation I have ever seen, ideal to get the look of this Bike exactly right. And.
If your not using Alclad 2, what are you using??? Please tell!!!

neil kerr Tamiya acrylics and spray cans. I have not got an air gun I was thinking of using Tamiya AS12 bare metal for the tank. I have to rub the seams down today and will give it a couple of coats to see how it looks, I will post a picture later let me know if it looks ok

Steve Wilson Nice one!!!
I use spray cans as well, Halfords actually! But I do decant it for my airbrush...
Tamiya acrylics are my comfort zone, but I'm learning that others are starting to overtake in quality, look and colour variety. One of these is AK, if you haven't tried them, you must (e-models), excellent stuff! Some great colours too, " Fuel Stains " for instance...
