Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine The Suzuka 8 Hour race is a huge event in Japan and was at its peak of popularity in the 1980s when crowds of over 130,000 spectators were normal. This Yamaha was entered for local hero Tadahiko Taira and former Grand Prix racer Kenny Roberts and they were leading the race until the last hour when mechanical problems dropped them back to seventeenth. The kit has plenty of detail with everything broken down into quite small components which will help when it comes to detail painting. The body parts are thinly moulded and the decoration of these will be relatively straightforward with the darker blue sections included on the clearly printed decals.
Mass produced plastic kits that build well. Instructions usually in several languages. Some subjects require slightly more advanced modelling techniques but these are well explained in the instructions. Made in Japan.
