Awesome build. I have one in my collection to do one day. The helmet looks great. How long did it take you?

Very nice build, JT, so realistic, the R1 looks like it's sitting in the showroom.  Your heat stained exhaust pipes are spot on, and I love the look of the aftermarket can.  Thanks for sharing.  Cheers

Great build - you did an awesome job.

The subtle "road use" weathering has been done without fault.

The helmet is a great touch !

Enjoyed watching this one come together

Cars and Star Wars, that's what I like making and painting!!!.
