YAMAHA R1 - 2001 version


Author Sandro Sottili


This time the subject is a 1/12 YAMAHA R1 - 2001 version.
I built this model starting from the TAMIYA 1/12 YAMAHA R1 1998 version.
I've only change the painting scheme (I know that there are some differences between 1998 and 2001 version), but I haven't the time to modify the original kit.
I build this kit in memory of Simone, a young boy, a friend of mine that died in a terrible accident the 31 August 2002 driving this bike, (this work was requested by his father after the tragical accident).
I hope that this work will be interesting for other modelers.
