1:12 Katana Custom wip

This is a kit that I recently bought from My toy co.

Its a 1:12 scale model made by Tamiya and cost 6.500 KD. Parts are not snap fit as other simpler kits and require cement and paint to complete the kit.

Details: Suzuki GSX 1100 a.k.a Katana

Scale: 1:12

Runners: 5 including chrome and clear parts

I usually do my hobby work during weekends and its about a couple of hours each day, so in a weekend I manage to get about 4 or 5 hours work done.

I didnt have much trouble assembling the crank case and the engine but the carburrettors and spark plugs were hard to fix coz they were so small (or my fingers were too big and clumsy)

I also painted the front and rear fenders, fairing and fuel tank. I used acrylic paint and used 3 coats for each part. Thats all I have now, hopefully I can complete this kit by Christmas.

  1. So it wasn’t bloggers block – it was the Katana that took all your attention !
    It looks awesome and am sure you are going to get a couple of fun hours to yourself.. much to the displeasure of the lady of the house !

    Hopefully you have no golf clubs at home !!!

  2. Wow! I built one of those like 15 years ago and its still sitting in the showcase back home.
    Brings back them memories 🙂
