1/24 Scale Zundapp with Sidecar
Posted by spencer1984 on Wednesday, May 01, 2013 5:49 AM

My first Tasca kit, and one of the very few motorcycle kits I've done.  The quality of the kit is fantastic, probably one of the cleanest castings I've ever seen.  I wouldn't call it an "easy" build thanks to the obscene number of parts (the front fork is made from more than two dozen pieces!), but no real problems, either.  More pics are available here.

I don't remember ever seeing a Tasca kit ,  it looks excellent !  With that many pieces in the front fork , how many are there in the kit ?

Very nice web site by the way ,  I'm going to spend some time and go thru it completely .

Thanks, guys!  I think the official parts count is around 180, and includes things like separate parts for the spark plug boots, metal springs for the forward seat, and wire for the brake & clutch cables.  It's really worth building, but frequent breaks are needed.

Really great looking build well done. When I was about 8 years old a neighbour had a sidecar outfit which was a BSA with an enclosed Watsonian sidecar his wife used to ride in. That was 45 years ago!

I found the kit on line.....for the price, about $60, it seems like a bargain.
