Review: Tamiya 1/12 Suzuki GSX1100S Katana – Kit Review
This is the opening of the still sealed box of the 1982 release of the Tamiya Suzuki 1/2 GSX1100S Katana.
Even though this model was produced in 1982 the contents were still sealed in their plastic bags. I noticed that NONE of the parts had broken away from the sprues.
There are five plastic sprues with parts and a sixth one that includes the clear parts. Three are of a silver type of color, one chrome and one black.
The tires, hoses and screws are in a separate bag. I did take note of the fact that, in this kit, the screws are of the "flathead" type. This will cause issues during the installation. Tamiya has since changed to "phillips" screws.
Decals were still crisp and clear without any sort of yellowing and I am sure they will still be usable.
Instructions came in both English and Japanese. I am sure you can guess as to which of these I will be using.
And let the fun commence!
