Majority of the engine parts to be primed and painted

I need to work out a way to prime and paint them without blowing them all over the place with the airbrush. Going to try and use cocktail sticks and blue tack and stick them in some foam, whether it'll work I don't know.

Started painting

Really happy with the bronze colour however I had some trouble with the main engine block as the paint reacted and did some weird things, I think I managed to save it by giving it another light coat but it's something I'll have to watch out for on other parts. The other parts I'll be hand painting then I'll be giving everything a coat of various varnishes.

Rear shock and center stand done. Not happy with the way the orange bump stop came out as my airbrush decided to play up while painting it. Also kind of surprised this kit has a center stand as its optional extra on the real bike.

Looking fantastic Marc, super nice little model station you've got going.

What airbrush are you using?

I really like it as it's really easy to use and strip down to clean it. I did try an iwata one (can't remember what one) but this seems to have far more control and feels so much better to use than the iwata I tried. It's also perfect for batch painting and painting larger things. I really need to get an rc body to try it on as I think it'll be great for painting them.
