One detail that was added and shown on the box art is the hose from the fuel tank cap to the fronts. This is to prevent the rider from misplacing the cap and acts as a vent into the tank.

Since real motocross bikes have plastic body pieces for durability and reduced weight, I did not paint the fenders or front and side numbers. I just cleaned them up and then polished them with Turle Wax Polishing Compound for a more realistic look. Only the fuel tank is painted gloss white.

The chain has excellent link detail that really stands out when a black wash was put over the gold of the chain. Also washed the engine.

Close up showing the drilled out slots in the front brake disc. I used X-11 Chrome Silver to paint on 'hose clamps" on all the radiator hoses.

Completed April 1,1998
