Honda RC211V 2002 & 2003 (7)

Finally, the 2002 is nearly done. I think that three Hondas at same time is just too much, this is getting a little boring. :-) 

Still need to polish the fairings, paint the backsides black and add a couple of decals to the frame.
Then this is done.

What next?

I've started to plan my next projects; two Yamahas this time. -09 for a "Tamiya OOB" Group build on a finnish Forum
Basicly it's a group build for any Tamiya model, but it has to be Out Of the Box. So no aftermarket parts this time. :-)

I chose the Tech3 Monster bike

I will also build Rossis special livery Yzr-M1 2010 from the Laguna Seca race, using a KS-Workshop resin transkit and Nicolecron decals.

The -02 is nearly fished, the decal work on the cowlings is done. Still need to clear coat them.

I fitted the unfished exhaust on the bike, looks good

Honda RC211V 2002 & 2003 (5)

I've started to apply the main decals on the -02 Honda, those old Tamiya decals are a real pain in the ass.. Very fragile.

Exhaust is almost finished, still need to paint the "heatstains".

Handlebar is also done, came out nice.

I managed to fix the carbonfiber decal, i used more smaller pices this time.

I replaced the chaintensioners with T2M photoetch pieces.

First big mistake, i screwed up the carbonfiber decal. Have to remove it and start over.

Honda RC211V 2002 & 2003 (2)

Time for update on these two Hondas i'm working on.
'02 fairings are ready for the main paint. I'll be using Zero Paints white as a base, and then met. blue and Repsol orange.

Chains are almost ready, i still need detail them with a brush. One rear fender remains black, carbon fiber decal for the other one.

Exhaust pipe seams are filled with Mr Surfacer 500
