Scale model motorcycles.
« on: March 20, 2020, 12:13:56 pm »
Hi guys,

I am here talking to those of you that lives near good hobby stores, all over SA.

I am into 1/12th scale model motorcycles, and is looking for some models.

Yamaha RD350LC
Yamaha TZ750
Kawasaki Z1 900 "superfour"

If ever you pop into a hobby shop, please check for me if they have any worthwhile models?

If possible, Tamiya is preferred.

No, to build myself.

I am specifically looking at that RD[z]350 in Tamiya, but I would like to look at the Z900 from Aoshima first, as I do not know them.

I will try Jeffrey Stein.

Thanks.

Ek het ook die Honda gebou asook die Katana. Die nuwer modelle se kwaliteite is beter maar as jy alles gebou het dan vat jy maar wat jy kan kry. Ek bou net pad fietse en glad nie die racers nie. Het ook oor tyd n paar minichamps bymekaar gemaak maar hulle is nou moer duur. Ek het n XT500 en as jy een kan koop is hy nou al by die R6,000.

Wow Gravelfox!!

I have the Minichamps XT500 and their Kawasaki H1 500 mach 111.

Also have a 1/18 Solido Gt750/H2 750 and CB750K0.

Yes, Minichamps re now unaffordable, when I bought they were around R1000 each, long ago though.
