Wink 1966 Honda S800 - Doyusha 1/12

1966 Honda S800 - Doyusha/Otaki 1/12

This kit is rare, hard to find and also expensive. But it is the only existing 1/12 model kit of one of the most traditional Nipponese classics. It is a pity that in Otaki, brand launched this kit in the 70s, have not been more careful attention to detail in the model.
The kit has an extensive cutting and plastic is good quality. However, many details of the model do not correspond to the real vehicle.
If you undertake the adventure of assembling this kit and want to get results in a very detailed model, you have to make many modifications and use of scratch techniques.

Este es un kit raro, difícil de encontrar y además costoso. Pero es la única maqueta 1/12 existente de uno de los clásicos nipones con más solera. Es una verdadera pena que en Otaki, marca que lanzó al mercado este kit en los años 70, no se hayan esmerado más en cuidar los detalles del modelo.
El kit tiene un despiece amplio y el plástico es de buena calidad. Sin embargo, muchos detalles del modelo no guardan correspondencia con el vehículo auténtico.
Si usted emprende la aventura de ensamblar este kit y desea obtener como resultado un modelo bien detallado, usted tendrá que hacer muchas modificaciones y hacer uso de técnicas de scratch.

I agree with others, great model. Pics are a little dark and small, but model is stunning.
