View Full Version : Valentino Rossi's Honda 500

Hi all

Something I built 3 years ago.
It's the Airfix "Honda 500cc" 1/24th scale.
The kit went together very nicely but the decals were a :yell: 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.

Decided it needed 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.


At least got some reward for it :thumb:
Hope you like it

Congratulations with winning the ribbon award from the model show.

Those tartan plaid trophy ribbons are the coolest model awards ever.
