Italeri 1:9 Norton Manx 500cc

Geoff Duke’s 1951 Isle of Man TT race bike. My dad’s family is Manx and this one was near and dear to the heart for that reason. I used Ala’s Totally Awesome All-Purpose Concentrated Cleaner-Degreaser-Spot Remover (As Seen On TV) to prep the “chrome parts” and used my own way of replicating the shiny stuff.

This was my first attempt at building a motorcycle since the ‘chopper’ kits of a long time ago!
