Tamiya Honda CRF1000L kit number 16042-22000
As stated in another post, I am doing a second Africa Twin. The other kit was great but some parts were broken. It was also the “Victory Red” version, this one will be the Pearl Glare White (tricolor) version. I was afraid to do this one first as it required multiple colors of paint and I was nervous about that. Having done the Honda CB1100 I got the confidence I need to do this one. I also wanted to do this kit in a step by step review as it is, in my opinion, Tamiya best 1/6th bike and my 10th in the collection.
The wheels are done expertly and realistically as is the aftermarket Detail-Up chain. So without further ado let’s get started 🙂
20 something Sprue parts, several bags of screws and springs, etc. 32 page instruction manual, 6 page full color booklet of the real bike, 4 page part list.
I have a very small home and space is limited, I work at the kitchen table and when dealing with 20 something sprues I came up with this method, it works well keeps the parts and trees labeled and in the original bags in the event small parts get knocked off, also easier to put away when the kitchen table is sided for silly things like eating and such 😉
