1/12 Tamiya Honda RC166 Grand Prix Racer


Recommended Posts

As soon as I finish my current ship build, the USS Essex CV-9, I plan to build this 1:12 scale Tamiya Honda 250cc Grand Prix Racer.

The model as depicted represents the 1966 World Champion who won 10 out of 10 races held that year.

The stock model kit is quite a well detailed offering from Tamiya. But to satisfy my OCD, will add super detailing parts just to make certain I keep things as complicated as possible.  :pirate41:






The detail parts include an updated, fully detailed front fork assembly; a detailed metal link-by-link drive chain and sprockets (with an assembly jig); a set of microscopic rivets; and last but not least, a fully detailed set of metal spokes, rims, and hubs, along with an appropriate jig to assemble it all and lace the wire spokes.




I can hardly wait, and it gives me motivation to get my Essex finished, soon!
