Product Description

The Treaty of Versailles concluded after Germany's defeat in World War I stipulated that the German Army should not consist of more tha 100,000 officers and men nor possess even tanks or armoured cars. Under these circumstances, the Reichswehr paid it attention to motorcycles (kraftrad or krad) as a successor to cavalry orderly and bicycle orderly, and started to concentrate its energies upon production of cars, transport lorries and motorcycles for mechanization of fighting troops. Motorcycles among others were first used as the main body of mechanized troops since they had such advantages that they were relatively inexpensive and those developed for non-military use could be used as they were. It was the BMW Model R75 having tough body and reverse gear that appeared at this point of time and displayed excellent ability. BMW's traditional 2-cylinder flat engine of 746cc had a maximum output of 26hp and gave the 400kg motorcycle with a sidecar a maximum speed of 95km/h. Carrying an MG34 or sometimes even at trench mortar on its sidecar, the R75 served as the spearhead of attacks and showed activity. It was also used by the Waffen S.S. which guarded Hitler. A large number of the R75 were employed by the Afrika Korps under the command of General Rommel and stood battles in severe, hot deserts, which raised its reputation further.

This is an amazing model its parts are all well molded barely if any flash. This is probably one of my most favorite kits. The model hasn't taken long to build. It is so good i have just ordered another one. I recommend this kit to novices and experts alike it is good for a small break between builds so if your halfway through one build and need a break just order this kit. Truly AMAZING

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Set. 15 Jun 2014
Bought this with ideas of adding it too a little diorama I pondered doing that never got off the ground, So I split the set up, the figures went to a tank dio and the bike I did in the Africa Corps colours with hope to place that near a tank at rest idea I had for a dio.

Still looks good does this sets, it's a real diamond. The bike and side car looks excellent and has just the right level of detail to make it authentic. There are a few little seems on the side car that need work but on the whole the build was trouble free and the end results are excellent. This may not be the build for people who have problems with fingers of have limited dexterity as there are some very small parts and it takes a huge magnifier glass to see what your doing. The front forks can rotate and the wheels can spin but I stuck mine in place.

The figures are good, the two walking figures have decent detail, weapons and ammo box, and the seated figures add detail the bike, I decided not to use the seated figures in the bike as I thought the outfits were a little heavy for the western desert.

On the whole, a great little set with plenty to keep you going and add detail to diorama builds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but showing it's age. 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
This Tamiya Motorcycle set looks good value at first sight & would be fine as an entry level kit for a child.
It is a very old kit & serves to show how far Tamiya has advanced in moulding & sculpting since it's introduction.
The moulding is crude & the figures wooden & unconvincing.
Not for serious military modellers.
