I have a small Yamaha finished too! First build for the year!

I finished building and painting the Yamaha Beluga/Riva 80 scooter that came in Tamiya's old Toyota Soarer kit from around '82 or so. The Soarer was built to replicate a cover car from Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car. This car in fact:

And here is the model of it:

The Beluga scooter model was comprised of about seven parts, two of which I lost, the kickstand and license plate. No biggie, I still had the important parts to build the scooter. So without further ado, here is the little scooter:
First, a pic of the actual thing:

A couple of in-progress pics:

And the finished model:

Paint color is Tamiya Mica Red over grey primer. I used a silver Sharpie marker for the wheels after painting the tires with black primer. The orange and red lights were also done with Sharpies and the headlamp was done with a Molotow pen. A fun little project that should have been done years ago instead of sitting on my workbench for the last almost five years. Thanks for looking and enjoy your evening.
