Honda CBR400F
After building the The January 2015 24 hour build event, organized by various groups around North America, was the inspiration
for this model.  Although I didn't completely finish the model in 24 hours, due to decal issues, it was still an enjoyable event.  It also
allowed me to be the first to finish our 2012 club challenge build - a white model.  Details of the 24 hour build event are
here.

Base Kit(s):   Tamiya Honda MVX250F (kit number 14023)     

Finished:        Feb 2012

Modifications/Additions:
- opened up vents on fairing and added screening
- Testor's clear decal spray managed to save the 20+ year old decals so that they would come off the paper in one piece
- bare metal foil behind turn signals
- paint is Tamiya silver lacquer on the frame, black acylics elsewhere,  Krylon white for plastic on bodywork

Honda CBR400F
After building the Yamaha FZ250 Phazer, I got inspired to do some more 'White motorcycles with blue stripes" and had this model
in my collection (no idea where it came from).

Covering the 20+ year old decal sheet with one coat of Krylon acrylic clear was enough to get them off in one piece.

Tamiya makes a version with a full fairing, which I think is prettier than this version.
