Tamiya Yamaha XV1600 Roadstar

Recommended Posts

Definitely more of a car guy than a motorcycle enthusiast but fell in love with this kit when I saw it on the shelves at the hobby store. I had some leftover paint from Scale finishes from a previous model I had painted and thought it would work just right on this. Paint is Scalefinishes Lexus Liquid Blue topped with a sweet, shiny and reflective Splash 2K clear which really made it pop. To enhance reality, I used a Hobby Design, Yamaha XV1600 Roadstar Detail-Up Photo-Etch Set specifically designed for this Tamiya kit. Had a lot of fun putting this one together!!!

Absolutely gorgeous!

I rode one of these on a trip through Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota back in September of 2019. I did 3,800 kilometres in 5 days on the bike. It was an extremely comfortable ride and a great trip.
