Does anyone make a 1/12 resin kit for the revell kit.It's one of my favorite movies and I loved the bike and almost flipped out when I saw the bike for 5 bucks at the flea market the other day.Posted Image

The closest thing I know of is the old heller 1/8 scale godier Genoud Kawasaki 1000 race bike....it's a great kit; may be hard to find one now; but will give you just the right "look".............Matt

Thanks guys,I tried rocket fin and didn't find anything using keywords like mad max,Jim goose,goose, Kawasaki,kz-1000,ect. I looked at the heller kit and it looks close,but it's 1/8th scale so I think I will have to scratch one.I'll just stash this kit back for awhile,then when my skills are good enough I think I will drag it out.

So what do you have already?
You say "the Revell kit", do you mean this one?

This one has a more correct shape tank

but you'll need to scratch up some side panels and a tail piece.
The tricky parts will be the wheels and the fairing.
Look at Tamiya kits for the wheels. They definately do some with cast 5 spokes that might be modifyable to suit.
This might give you something to work with and also give you a start on the fairing

You'd have the 'screen bubble to start with which will be the most difficult part to source - the rest can be built up from styrene sheet.

That's a pretty good start. Side panels and tank are more correct.
Those 5 or 7 spoke wheels?
