Rossi wintertest nsr500 1999

I recently bought a decal set for the NSR500 wintertest that Rossi made in 1999. I can't find any pictures of this bike. Can somebody help me out!!

Re: Rossi wintertest nsr500 1999

I note from the Minichamps forthcoming release that the bike ran with Nastro Azzurro logos on the fairing sides and Breil, HRC decals too. HTH When I get around to this one, I'll have to do it right, so there's some work to do.



...although these images suggest the Dexter decals are correct, in which case they represent the very first test day Valentino did on the NSR Honda. He borrowed a set of leathers and said the bike looked aweful!!

Re: Rossi wintertest nsr500 1999

It wasn't on a Rossi site - just some news article I found on a Italian Motorsport site. If you look long enough.....

I'm a big Vale fan, so I have pretty much everything ref wise. Anything post-2000 is easy to find.

Re: Rossi wintertest nsr500 1999

It has been a while since I started this thread. After a long vacation (for the model) in my pile, I started working on it. After many hours of decalling, I'm almost done.


The model so far;























Enjoy

Re: Rossi wintertest nsr500 1999

First off, yours looks FANTASTIC! I don't have any more pics. I probably got mine from Paul. This was the first bike I ever built because I couldn't get 2 sets of Rossi kit decals to work with me. I guess covering the whole bike in CF was easier...



More pics on my site
