This is fantastic! Pipy, congrats on a beautifull build. Are you sure of the scale? Looks more like 2:1 to me....LOL
Great!!!!!! --You call THAT paper? This will definitely rock those pl*st*c modellers ^_^
And also, nice work on the headlight, it really looks like it's been injection moulded

Yamaha MT-01 Motorcycle Model
Thanks for sharing those pictures, pipy,
It´s an incredible build. The dedication to detail is overwhelming - the handle bar controls and all the minute warning lamps and buttons are there just like on the real thing.
I am also very impressed with the putty work and the ultra-realistic chrome paint on the exhaust pipes. What kind of silver paint do you use?
I kind of thought that you had printed the motor parts on metallic paper.
I like the look of your cutting mat - is has really been used . . .
All the best from the North,
It's official ... all my work looks like...
What type of putty did you use? Is this paint spray paint or brush on?
Stev0, good shooting! i wanna a dunk next time:lol:
about paint, i don't have spray gun & air pump, i used kinds of aerosol can within spray paint...they be good at apply to metallic effect~ like chrome.
and also apply acrylic color with brush when paint the small parts and tyres.
chrome effect spray paint:
about putty... it's epoxy putty, two kinds of ingredient required mix befor using.
in fact, most of materials which i used were not special for modeling
here i came to the wheel & tyre, the whole process of modify is excited and also difficult...share it with you guys
spokes and rim
tyre apply, fill with wastepaper
you can find both front and rear tread are already finished in the pics above, but in fact, the first rear tyre was burst when be ground.
the elec grinder's rotate speed over ten thousand rpm, somewhere of the putty on the tread was too thin to grind, with huge friction, the tread was cracked. also due to the high rotate speed, the whole wheel burst:cry: :cry:
after the tyre bust, i tried another way to build the rear tyre
what is the name of this kind of paper? corrugated paper?
putty & grind
close shot of hub
MT-01 equipped the tyres with METZELER ME Z4 in manufacturer, unfortunately, YAMAHA haven't offer any logo/marker/data on side wall this time. i searched ME Z4's img on net, and figured the markers by myself...
i don't have the laser cutter~~~
can you find the logo of elephant8)
Pipy, my jaw just hit the floor! The details you put into this build is awesome, putting pl****c kits to shame!
Yamaha MT-01 Motorcycle Model
Here´s a little suggestion;
You´ve just GOT TO send some of the pictures of your beautiful Yamaha bike model to the people at the Yamaha home page:
I am absolutely conviced that they would like to display your build on their home page, to show what marvels that could be achieved with their
MT-01 card model, if you put a lot of hard work and dedication to it.
sorry for your lower jaw, did the upper one catch the ceiling... kidding:-D thanks for your words
yep! that's absolutely good idea... actually i had already submitted the customer questionnaire after the model finished, meantime i linked the url of the picture... anyway, thanks for the suggestion and your warmhearted replies all along :grin:
What an excellent model Pipy!!!
I have recently finished the MT-01 myself, but did not put anywhere near the level of detail that you have put into this model. Just doing the paper model as given took me about 170 hours. I hope it isn't rude of me to ask how many hours you have put in this superb example?
Other than that, I'm speechless!
thank you for your reply and please just feel free to ask
i haven't really calculated, as a conservative guess it average out at three hours per day, so i suppose this model cost over 400 hours.
sorry for haven't update these days, due to my new program launched, i'll post rest of pics this time~~hope you can enjoy
in this part, i just jointed with putty and painted, no alter
