Tamiya Honda MB50Z 1/6 complete
Posted by ManicRC on Saturday, March 24, 2012 9:06 AM

I bought a Honda MB5 (US model name) from Glendora Honda for $399 back in 1982 when I was fifteen years old. It was a great first bike and totally bullet-proof. It was a pleasure building it in 1/6 scale, especially with the close knowledge about how everything is supposed to look and fit together. There were quite a few differences between this kit and my bike that were incorporated (no fairing, fewer stickers, and different colors for certain parts).

This is a great kit with lots of realism and very true to the original bike. My only complaint is the mismatch on the mold halves. They were shifted by ~.25mm in some cases; not what I have come to expect from a great company like Tamiya.

Nice job you did on that bike and yes one would expect better quality from Tamiya kits.
