Looking at racing motorcycles, under the point of view of the real machines, I'm not an expert, that means, I'm not thoroughly informed about world championships, and I'm not a fun of these mechanical wonders as well.....just I feel pleasure when constructing these kits, straight from the box. However, I know that the 211 is a real new, because of its engine, and races won (which I guess this model follows getting with the 2003 version).


This kit has been the most important Tamiya release, related to motorcycles, since several years ago. So, I decided that a cover note would be suitable, mainly for novices, and, of course, this is well reflected in the interest that, this Tamara's model arose among modellers

The kit

The kit offers very interesting news regarding to its predecessors. Happily, at last Tamiya realized that the calipers had double body. So, the new plastic pieces that replicate these important parts of the motorcycle have the necessary detail... on both sides.

Building the kit

It's very easy to build this kit, specially if you master the basic paint techniques. The actual motorcycle has been designed modularly, to let a quick replacement of its parts; this also helps to this kit's construction, since everything can be handled and placed without difficulties.
