This was the Tamiya 99 kit which - just like their 98 kit - is actually based on the 97 bike. Quite annoying that the water manifold; ECU and silencers are wrong. I did cut the silencers down as much as I dared but they're still too long, and this led to the top silencer on the side being skew-whiff. 

 

My first build using some Top Studio extras. Fairly pleased but still much improvement to be had.

Finished another Biaggi bike last year - 01 YZR. Unfortunately, the red has bled through the white decals now.

This is still awaiting decals. I'm hoping to print some myself to end up with Noriyuki Haga's wildcard YZR entry for Suzuka in 98. Nori finished third (second until the final chicane) and Max won on the subject bike of this thread.

Wow that absolutely excellent (both of them in fact)

 

Top Studio extras you say. Do they do complete Decal kits then?

 

I am currently working on a Yamaha YZR500 (Abe, 2000 I think) - is that Biaggi Yamaha kit based off of the same kit do you know?

Thanks for your kind words (the out of alignment silencer really rankles me). 

 

The decals are this set, from Reji.

Generally okay but a few had lighter patches and a sort of furry finish. 

 

The Top Studio gear was just the exhaust kit (springs, end plates, mounting plate, tips) and a fair few nut and bolt ends. I've stocked up on quite a lot for my next kits: clutch, gear linkage, footpegs etc. 

 

 

Your kit will be one of those YZRs in my post. 

The naked one is actually the Abe 99 kit, but there's also an Abe 01 kit (same as the Biaggi kit). Check the front brake calipers, you'll see they are different for each YZR. 

 

Good luck with your build. I'll hope to see it here.
