Pack 8

Main part of swingarm is metal and heavy.
Top bracing and splashguard is plastic but is matched to the swingarm colour.A little care is needed to attach them to each other as they are a tight fit but its worth taking a little time to get it lined up correctly.
The parts assembled to make a great replica swingarm assembly.Cool
Part of the engine crankcase.
Really enjoying this build and the other bikes, hope there are more in the pipeline for next year maybe BigGrin

Good to hear your enjoying the bike builds Al.

The Kawasaki 750RS Z2A is heading our way though as a pre-assembled item which can be broken down if you look at the latter pics...

Another classic machine which will go nice with my 1/6 scale Tamiya bikes, would have been even more impressive in 1/4 scale but can't have everything BigGrin

Pack 9 is here.

Parts unwrapped, the crankcase half is another weighty part and the chain is just a gem.
Parts assembled as per the instructions with no issues.
I couldn't resist trying the engine top end onto the crankcase and put a pound coin in the pic as a size comparison.

Thanks for looking
