Tamiya 1/12 Honda Dax Export ST70 - Notes

98/08/30

Assembled main kick stand, headlight case, rear fork and seat bottom. Cleaned up some other parts

98/08/31

Assembled fuel tank and frame. Cleaned up remaining parts on sprues A and B

98/09/01

Assembled crankcase and cylinder head and wheels.

The sprockets were painted with Testor's Aluminum Plater Metalizer and the chain was painted with Tamiya X-19 Smoke to bring out the detail and add an oily appearance.

98/09/02

Not much done, only assembled front brake assembly and part of front forks

98/10/04

Primed all the body parts with Floquil Reefer White

98/10/12

Applied the Testor Metallic Sapphire Blue to all the body parts

98/10/18

Polished all the parts painted Sapphire Blue with Tamiya's Rubbing/Polishing Compound and it worked great.

Once polishing was finished, I assembled the complete front fork, rear shocks and other some other minor assembly. I also began preparing the numerous chrome parts by removing from the sprue and touching up when necessary with a Tamiya X-11 Chrome Silver paint pen.
