Gunze Daytona Coupe

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of the Gunze High-Tech kits. They are impressive but not without problems. When they were new, I thought them to be milestones technically and offer some rare subject matter as well. The Meguro Z7 was a motorcycle I had never heard of until I came across the GS kit. I don't think these sold really well at the time and I'm sure that the two kits I have were bought at discount. The Daytona that I have suffered a very poor start by the non-modeler that gave it to me. I stripped the body and curbsided it for now. The rest of this guy's build was just scary. Definitely not a good choice of kits for a first timer.

In the hands of someone like Dave, however, a stunning replica.

The translations on the box sides were a little like getting the comics in the newspaper. They should have just called me.


The wire wheels are pretty cool, a sandwich of 6 or more parts, but they do have an irrecoverable gap between rim halves.
