Hi all well I've added some more water to the back of the spray booth and made a bit more progress on the bike

Awesome attention to detail Ken, that spray booth is excellent mate ! As is the wooden top on the work bench.
Is that a real piece of timber or is it a paint effect (it looks great)

Very novel idea to do a workshop/maintenance diorama and very authentic feel to it already

Its cardboard painted pete, anyway, here is an update on this. My first of several problems I can forsee coming up The carb inlet openings are blanked off as they normally wouldn't normally be seen, as they are inside the airbox, os I've had to open them also since the cable are not connected I have to show the inner cables and the nipples on the ends of those, think I've opened a can of worms here, we will have to see what else crops up.

Hi all as I said opened a whole bag of worms, of course with no tank or seat on the wiring loom would be visible, advice please does this look convincing ( obviously there would be loads more wires really but I don't have any thinner wire to hand and I don't want the loom to get too thick)
I realise I need to add the copper connectors to the end of the wires, and I realise the wires should be wrapped in black insulating tape, also the loom would not be tied with string, this I purely to check if its worth using this method.

Hi all here is an update on this one, thanks to a friend  he sent me some networking wires which are half the thickness of telephone wires, I am now happy with the wiring loom, I dipped the ends in clear bathroom sealant for the plastic insulation over the ends of the copper connectors also I used flattened soldering wire for the cable ties to the frame.
