New and Interesting from Zvezda

Post  S.N.A.F.U. on Sat Jul 04, 2009 3:11 pm

Hi all,

I'm currently working on a Lionroar Zundapp 750 - a kit that cost me £30.00 (Great British Pounds) and was difficult to find so I was a bit miffed to see this is now available at almost 1/3 of the price.

http://www.zvezda.org.ru/?lng=eng&nav=1&nov=2&set=3607

I haven't seen one yet but "The Grumpy Shopkeeper" tells me that its mighty fine - in some ways looks better than the Lionroar motorcyle and comes with a figure set that includes a pig! Not often you get one of those with an armour model eh!

Cheers

Daz

Hi Snaf yep i was fortunate enough to view said kit in grumpies shop and can confirm its a beaut the pig looks ace sat in the sidecar not manning the MG unfortunately but heading for his demise trussed up pig
But the bike is nice and very detailed wouldnt say the equal of the Lionraw but certainly worth the price Very Happy

Oh Cool an R12 ! Very Happy

Hmmmm I would not try to compare it with an R75 which was a bigger bike , the R12 did not have a powered wheel on the sidecar either , it is a very cool bike though . It also had the zundapp style frame which formed a Y yolk around the fuel tank rather than the one piece frame which was enveloped by the fuel tank of the R75 .

I have not heard of an R12 being released as an all plastic kit so it will be a unique kit ! I will get one .

Look's like a very nice kit. I also like the two variants offered: gunner and pig.

I do see a little annoyance on the gunner variant: While the sidecar guy seem's quite in battle mode his driver friend is quite relaxed scratch

Looks pretty good.
Of course I gave up using a micrometer 30 years ago.

When Richard said "pig" earlier, I thought he was using US slang for a belt-fed machine gun, "pig." That is to say, it is heavy and it 'eats' alot of ammo! I did not think the literally meant PIG pig
