Zvezda have released the BMW R-12 with sidecar in their 1/72 scale snap fit Art of Tactic war gaming series, and Russ Amott puts one together for us.

In last time I was assembled this set in 1/35 scale. It's nice model. I did the model with pig in the sidecar, it look great. I'm very glad from my work.

Tom, thanks for getting this posted. Pawel, I wish they had included the pig in this little kit. It was a fun build.

Wow, that's not what I was expecting. I think it was a good idea to go with basically a one-piece motorcycle in this scale.

Russ,

Good review and the model looks quite interesting. I've built a few 1/72 and 1/76 versions of this bike and this one is definitely better in several respects. The most telling are the figures and especially the MG-34.

Cheers,
Jan
