German Motorcycle R12 with Sidecar and Crew
Zvezda 1:35th Scale Kit No. 3607
Engine fitted to chassis frame. The missing battery should be located where indicated.
Note; the blemish on the cylinder head cooling ribs, this was due to me resting the partly assembled engine
on a drop of unseen glue on the workbench and not a fault with the kit. The ribs on both sides are as per the left side view
and luckily this mess is on the right cylinder head hidden by the sidecar when fitted.

Also indicated is the small air filter which is included in the kit.

Sidecar frame and wheel guard, the join on the two part guard is very fine and easy to eliminate.
Wheels in two parts each, a bit of work in cleaning the mould seams from all the spokes
but this helps to reduce their thickness a little more.
Weapons supplied, there is also all the personal gear for the three figures included.
MG34 barrel replaced with the ABER metal barrel (set #35 L-70) for a better appearance.
