Description* :
This tamiya 1:12 scale caterham super seven bdr cycle fender special model number 10202 came out in 1994.

The carbon fiber look of the fenders and cowl is also very convincing. The timing belt appears to be made from rubber with flexible tubing used for the various water and oil lines. Many of the parts are assembled with screws, adding to the realism of this fantastic kit.

As would be expected in a kit of this age, there are some scuffs on the box, but there are no holes and the box is still tape-sealed. This scale master’s coachwork model is known as probably tamiya’s most sophisticated kit and it would seem that the recommendation that it can be assembled by those age 10 and up is a bit ambitious. The completed model measures approximately 28.5 cm... Read More
