I am sure many of you have them. I just stumbled on the KZ1300 model photos and they look superb! And that 1/6 engine scale model looks fantastic in photos. Are they really that good? Can I see some?

Found this video on youtube. Looking very good!

Building an engine from random parts. This will eventually morph into building a bike from random parts - if it ever happens. Need a frame to begin with.

The Tamiya 1/6th models are fantastic quality. The "other" brands 1/8th - not so much.

You do need a good eye and steady hand to attend to the detail on the Tamiya model kits.

I have all 3 Tamiya KZ/Z1300 kits on display collecting dust and another set of 3 in my attic that I'm saving for my retirement - I suspect my eyes will have deteriorated too much and my hands will shake too much to complete them.

That's a little surreal seeing parts of a bike you recognise, but in miniature :P

These models, the engine, look freakishly real! I wonder what it took to make them. 3D scanning? I think these were not made yesterday though. Great detail. They are 1/6 scale. I'd love to have one that's 1/4. Half size would be probably a bit too big for an average enthusiast, but I bet they would sell a lot!

One I built a few years ago - took a few months over the winter but nice kit and very accurate in details!

Wow, fantastic looking Neville!!! You could put it on eBay for sale and I bet fool everyone! I am adding this to my bucket list (not the eBay trick of course ;)
I must have one model like this!
