Newsletter 426: Dakar '86

Dakar '86

Dakar '86
The Dakar rally is one of the toughest, most complex and unpredictable races on the planet. Every year it captivates us and takes us to remote places where the drivers and their machines fight against the heat, the sand, stones, hardships, surprises and even snow, as happened in the 1986 edition, a particularly complex year.

Two of the motorcycles that participated in this edition were reproduced in scale models. One of them, the Yamaha Tener 600cc in 1/9 scale by Protar, has been reissued for a limited time by Italeri and you already have it available on SpotModel. Haven't you already preordered yours? Hurry up, they are selling out fast!

The molds are the same, the decals are the same too but freshly printed, and although the parts list is already interesting enough, it is very possible that you want to improve something with either the Albion Alloys brass tubes that are now back in stock, with the panel engravers by Tamiya, or that you want to use the new AK Interactive glues for plastic.

At SpotModel we have decided that the merit of riding this motorcycle in such extreme conditions is comparable to the merit of building it perfectly in 1/9 scale, what do you think? ;P

Italeri: Model bike kit 1/9 scale - Yamaha Tenere 600cc #82, 83, 84 - Marinoni Giampaolo, Picco Franco, Findanno Gianpiero - Paris Dakar Rally 1986 - metal parts, plastic parts, rubber parts, water slide decals, assembly instructions and painting instructions
