    Came across this kit and had to add it to my Tamiya 1/6 Police bike collection. Was an old kit and the plastic was brittle like glass. Numerous breakages and it almost died the death of a thousand cuts several time….but I persevered and here is the results….I did not plumb it though as I was to frustrated with it. I may in the future, I may not

    It came out okay but was a lot of trouble

    Thanks John! I hate to give up on these kits and of course the photos are very forgiving ;). Maybe someday I will go back to it and add the wires etc. I’m just afraid everything will break :/

    Wow! Wonderful result, my friend @bikequeen!
    I know how hard is to add all this little stuff to the ultra sensitive model...

    Thank you everyone! I’m not 100% happy with it….I’m a terrible perfectionist :). I’m my dad’s daughter 😉

    Looks great! Had a next door neighbor that owned the regular street model of this BMW, R75/5 (I think?), didn't have the fairing but definitely had that tank, was a maroon red.
