Tamiya 1/12 Honda Dax Export ST70 - Notes
Assembled main kick stand, headlight case, rear fork and seat bottom.
Cleaned up some other parts
Assembled fuel tank and frame. Cleaned up remaining parts on sprues A and
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.
Not much done, only assembled front brake assembly and part of front
Primed all the body parts with Floquil Reefer White
Applied the Testor Metallic Sapphire Blue to all the body parts
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.
