:superlglue: It took a while, but it is finished and I am happy to show my handy work. :D

I am sure there will be the odd speck of dust here and there, but that comes with the territory :angry-banghead:

:superlglue: Chaqdders 87 recently ask me if I had received the front fork upgrade kit and I was pleased to tell him, YES, and I also took delivery of a second Duke that I painted the "Italian Red" using the paint I decanted from the spray can, this allows the paint to 'degas' as if you try to use it straight after decanting the paint, you get a heap of bubble form all over what you just sprayed. :angry-banghead:

After the paint is degassed, (rest it for at least two hours), I then put it through my Iwata eclipse air brush as I have better control over the flow rate than using a can ! :whistle:

Now, the fork upgrade kit has it all, and some. :D

You get the main legs and the black oil seal ring, plus, the oil resevor for the rear Olins shock, then there are the 12 metal "isolator" inserts for the front disk rotors, AND, the two (curved) rubber boots nipple covers for the gas struts on top of the forks at the steering head. :clap:

I well post some of the build here but I wont bore you to death with millions of pics, just the ones I think matter. :angry-banghead:

. :D Mustang, Thanks for the kind words of appreciation, :D

I am wondering what else I will tackle now as I have had my fill of bikes for a while, :angry-banghead:

Is there something you would recommend that will take some time to build that I can enjoy mate ? as I am now getting a sore back from hunching over for countless hours, uhhhh, not to mention that I am almost 70. :naughty:

Mustang, As I was typing my reply, I saw your comment come through about the "Senna" grey thoughts.

The grey looks really challenging and the grunty looks of that colour scheme makes it appealing too. :D

That's a hard one what area of modelling do you like.
Do you want a long build or a quick build, faster then 11 days :lol:
What size do want it to be large or small

not to mention that I am almost 70. :naughty:

Well I have to say that if I'm still doing this level of skill and greatness at 70 I'll be a happy man. Still got just under 30 yrs to go. :laughing-rolling:

:superlglue: I am by no means a decrepped old man as I still actively take the odd motorcycle tour on my BMW 1150R , but I have very little space in my display cases now and I remember seeing a Dragonfly model that blew my mind here, a multi media kit from Europe I think, and some thing like that would suite me down to the ground :D

I love intricate modelling, time consuming stuff that makes you think outside the square and challenge your self and one's skills. :o

The engineer in me and problem solving is the main reason I do modelling.

No apologise needed it just that we see what's written differently to how someone else writes it :lol: I didn't want you to thing the same about my comment.

Look forward to seeing what you do next.
