More Motorcycles

The Italeri Motorcycle set. The holes are for locating the crew members. A bit of putty will fill them if the crew is not needed.

Italeri 1/72nd scale motorcycle with sidecar in soft plastic.

The model consists of the body, the fuel tank/handlebars, and the side car, side car tire and side car spare tire.

I don't like the big clunky base and the motorcycle looks better without it. Simply cut off the locating pins on the bottom of the tires and it stands up just fine on it's own.

The Germans used thousands of these all through the war. The Russian motorcycle was a virtual copy and so this can serve the Soviets too.

Come on where is the bottom of the base shot. (that is a joke!!)

No good work, can see exactly what we are getting and yes 4 bikes would have been good.

how soft is soft as will be doing the
on their own thing. And glue etc is a big one with these figures and sealing once painted.
cheers karcuss

We get two bikes with side cars and two without so we get four bikes. We should have gotten six bikes. There is not that much plastic in these sets.

I was meaning again even 4 and 4 as the motorbikes can always go into the spares box.
But they look crisp, i did the HAT thing and used the sidecars on the other bikes so variation of bikes
Zundapp and BMW etc with and without sidecars.

Cheers karcuss

The HaT set was good, but this is a much better motorcycle. The weapons are also better than the HaT. I have many of the HaT and I will probably buy more, but this is a better set.
