Gunze Sangyo 1/12 Rikuo RT-II '57 - Overview
This model kit and is very different from the typical plastic model kit. In addition to the plastic parts, the kit includes die-cast metal engine and frame parts for a more realistic looking motorcycle. Wire rod for the wheel spokes, control rods and other fine detail. At first glance the kit was rather intimidating since a lot of fabrication is needed and I'd be working with materials new to me.
Note: This kit is only recommended for experienced modellers. The kit involves a considerable amount of drilling and scratch building.
