1:9 Scale Plastic Model kit
Period: from 1950 to 1990
Finished Model Length.: 221mm
This Cardan-transmission motorcycle, first built in 1950, reached a peak of reliability and competitiveness in 1956 when it adopted chain transmission and a telescopic front fork. The 500 cc 4-cylinder MV Agusta was ridden by the worlds most famous racers - J. Surtees, M. Hailwood, G. Hocking and G. Agostini.
Thanks to them this near-unbeatable motorcycle dominated the 500 cc category from 1956 to 1965, winning 9 world titles. It continued competing until 1966 when it was retired to make way for a new, lighter, more manageable 3-cylinder motorcycle.
The model, pre-moulded in the original colours and with chrome-plated parts, also features working suspension and rubber tyres.
Starter Paint Pack Includes:
5 x 17ml Vallejo model paints. Vallejo paints are supplied in plastic bottles of 17ml with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills. The model color range has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. The paint packs offered are only our suggestion and may not match directly with the instructions found within the kit.
