Tamiya 1/12 Red Bull YZR500


Recommended Posts

Finally glad to see the end if this. Printed a new chain, fork bottoms and other bits for extra detail. Had problems with plastic, decal and paint cracks towards the end. That said its a pretty bike and scheme so I'm glad to have it on my shelf.

Lovely result there. I can certainly appreciate all of the extra work that you've done. Bravo! 👍

 

Seeing McCoy smoking the rear of that bike was quite a sight. Who would've thought that a rider could jump from 125s and do that?

I would have preferred his number 8 bike but those decals are beyond rare and finding another kit for a reasonable price is almost impossible.

Lovely build there. One thing which always amazes me when I see so many Red Bull sponsored race vehicles is that so many people must be drinking that sickly sweet stuff.

Also Monster, Rockstar etc. Probably young folks as an all day replacement for coffee. I don't care for it either.
