    WIP Suzuki GSX-R 750

    Posted after taking henk4's advice and my newt attempt at helping get this forum active again . I'm about almost done with this bike, but as my friend has dropped off his 1/24 Ferrari Enzo for me to work on a little, this WIP is temporarily on hold (I'll use this opportunity to post more pics, I should've posted this a long time ago ). My goal is to make this bike look custom, but not like something "Kustom", but rather something custom that could've been comissioned by some rich guy or................, well, I think you get the idea. Well, I'll try my best to get some more progress pics, but theres not enough time for that, yet.........

    Put a larger rear tire on it and fab up a stretched swing arm. Also if you could fab up a nitrous bottle with a bracket that would be pretty cool too.

    Is there a way to paint without primer?
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    Oh, just saying, cause the 1st motorcycle I made was a different scale (smaller)

    Both? Gray is for black or gray color. Gray color requires gray primer. You need white for all other colors (I think) (Henk4, correct me if I'm wrong )

    in a way easier, as they have less emphasis on a smooth body and nice window frames, which many times are a real headache...

    Exactly And you don't need flocking of anything to make a realistic interior, as there is no interior on a motorcycle
