I just finished this build as a gift for my brother who is a big Rossi fan. The kit was the Tamiya one with the rider. I loved building the bike and am hoping to do more of the same if i can find the kits for a reasonable price !

The rider was the first figure i have ever built and will probably be the last as it was nothing but a chore ! I think i will stick to vehicles from now on.

The bike kit was a joy to build however, the detail and the quality of the kit were absolutely brilliant.

here are some pics.

thanks a lot guys, the decals were an absolute mission ! the helmet alone had 17 to put on, and both bike and rider had about 50 each.

Thanks Bob, they all came with it and it also had even more, The rider figure came with 2 helmets both with their own decal sheet and the bike came with enough decals for two different bike designs. (rossi or Lorenzo) The kit comes with everything you need to fully detail the bike. I regret not taking pics in progress because there is so much detail hidden under the cowlings.
