This Tamiya kit was released in 2004, and is an accurate replica of the motorcycle with which Valentino Rossi won his 6th riders championship. Nobody thought it possible that Valentino would win the rider’s title with Yamaha in the first year after the team’s change partly because Honda didn’t allow Valentino to test the Yamaha M1, up to only three months before the World Moto GP began. When at the end of last curve of Welkom Sud Africa circuit, Rossi overtaking his rivals, he demonstrated that he still was far beyond his limits.
The model I built represents the motorcycle in the first five races of the 2004 championship. In this model I added all possible scratchbuilt details, no etched parts, resin ones…etc.
In the article below, you will have a clear explanation about how I made and added every new part, cable, electronic box,…etc
