The 1/6 scale motorcycles Tamiya manufactured, were always incredible kits. Their quality and beauty, even today, after so much time astonish me. They have big plastic parts, whose accuracy and details many kits would envy.

The modifications

For the modelers like me, that build several kits annually, few new kits during several years is frustrating. Wishing to find more fun I couldn't see other way that modifying an existent model.

In this article I show my customized Katana. As I would like my 1/1 Katana were, if I had one of course. (the civilian vehicles allow us certain artistic licenses).

To simplify things, I worked with simple modifications, that anybody can realize, or take the idea for an own project.

I decided that it had to be a quick and funny project, not an incredible one but tedious and endless.
