Ride in the new year

Brompton (30/12/2010)

My last kit of 2010. Worked on it for 3 days so it crossed over to 2011.
This Brompton kit comes with the October 2010 issue of Hobby Japan.

The kit has easy assembly but the parts are not molded that nicely compared to Bandai molds. Theres quite a bit of sanding to get rid of lines left by the mold. The lines are everywhere, at the pedals and even the wheel spokes. Did sand down some but not all.

Found out that my tube of white putty had harden so I didn't putty the frame of the bicycle. Wonder why they didn't mold it as one piece.

Another cool thing is that it folds up just like the real thing.
