Talking Yamaha MT-10

Hey All

I have decided to build the Yamaha MT-10 for two reasons.

1: I am using 80 gram paper this time to build the model as against the 160 gram that I have normally used in the past and I have had issues in the building of the V-MAX and R1M in that part just seem to be a bit on the over sized scale and model does not fit together as I would want it to.

2: If this works I am going to re-build the R1M again as from failed first go with the same formula in point one.




I have printed all the pages out from a colour laser printer, I have done all the marking of the bend lines and I have found that none of the ink has lifted from the paper yet, when I bent the Train model from Canon I saw that there was some ink lifting from the paper when I did the marking of the bend lines of which later resulted in ink coming adrift from the paper.

But figures crossed lets see how this build goes.

Glad to see you getting back on that horse. The MT-10 looks as if it will be a real beauty once finished.

Hi Retunga
A clienic tip if you cut away the glue strips of the model and at the bottom new start the sides become much sharper and you get no height difference.

Example
A: glue stripped away.
B: the whole piece is reinforced from underneath and cut out, lines with an empty pen crossed so you get a nice folding seam.
C: Without reinforcement
D: With reinforcement.

Amazing. It looks so detailed that if you put gas in it, it will run
Good luck with the build, I want to see that bad boy finished.
