Hi all
Finally finished my project for this poles apart thing .

It's the Airfix "Honda 500cc" 1/24th scale.
The kit went together very nicely but the decals were a to put on as the model in the instruction sheet is standing upright. After some prodding managed to get them the best I could after them lifting 3 or 4 times.











The rider is Valentino Rossi winning "Grand Prix de France, Le Mans, 20th May 2001 on his
Nastro Azzuro Honda.

Hope you like it

Very nice Steve.

It'll certainly look good on the table, what is your Home Pole going to be?

Thanks Andy

As I've done everything from Sci-fi , ships, figures and planes I think most of my other models are tanks so you could take your pick but I suppose Armour would be my Home Pole if I had to choose

Some nice work there Steve. Sam and I were going to do some Rossi Bikes for our Poles, But it's going to take a while as Sam is a huge Rossi fan and very meticulous about any kits depicting "The Doctor" (thought I should warn you) I do have a Hayabusa so I may do that instead.

Hi Allen

The kit actually came with "The Doctor" decal for the figures backside but decided not to use it as it wouldn't be seen .

Just an update to show the bike on a base.




I made it out of old CD's with fine sandpaper glued onto it as the road.
I was going to hand paint the finnish line but decided to use a sticky label insted
