Newsletter 510: The chain we were all waiting for

The chain we were all waiting for

The chain we were all waiting for
We all know that detailing the chain of our scale model motorcycles has always been a headache, even with the Tamiya models, among other things because blinded links continue to appear and the detail and realism that we all want is missing.

The option by some manufacturers of assembling the chain link by link becomes tedious, complex, insufferable and in many cases it is not possible to achieve the desired result in terms of chain tension, regular link spacing, etc. Surely you have ever thrown one against the wall or even to the trash... :)

At Decalcas they know what we are talking about, so they have got down to work and have developed a set of chainring, pinion and crown, manufactured by 3D printing, which has the chain with the exact dimensions for replacing without problems the original chain included in the model. It also includes the chainring, the pinion, the chainring nuts and a closing link as independent parts, so painting the whole assembly is a piece of cake.

Your fully detailed chain in a few simple steps can now be preordered at SpotModel. Wonderful!!! :D

Reference: DCL-PAR071

Set of parts for replacing the chain assembly of the Tamiya Suzuki GSX-RR in 1/12 scale. It includes the pinion, chainring, fixing nuts, chain and closing link, which facilitates the paint job. The extreme detail with which this set is designed and manufactured allows for greater realism to the model, since you can actually see the gap between the plates and the rivets in the links, and all the holes, teeth and marks are detailed in the chainring and pinion, also featuring a really easy assembly for any modeler.
