Painting & Assembly Required. Ages 12 & Up.
This model recreated the early-season version of the bike ridden by F. Spencer. Modelers have a choice between white and clear parts to recreate cowlings, chamber cover, and seat cowl. Using clear parts allow close appreciation of the inner workings of the NSR500's unique chamber and fuel tank layout. Cowling parts are attached using fine screws. The single-crankshaft V4 engine showcases Tamiya's trademark attention to detail. Aluminum frame and complex fuel tank are exquisitely recreated. Vinyl tubing is used to accurately model fuel pipes, accelerator, clutch cables, and so on. Authentic rear suspension utilizes a metal coil spring. Comes with a racing stand to display the model, and include decals to depict the bike's markings, in addition to masking seals to aid with painting.
