Build Notes

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 B


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 forks


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.
