Picked up another RC51... sorta

I snagged this on eBay last week... I hadn't seen one of them before. This was from 2002. If I sniped anyone here I appologize.

Nice! I have the same one, and the Nicky Hayden one with the #1 plate. Both came assembled with my bike. I would keep that thing in the box.

Nice find! I, too, got the same one from eBay a few years back, but it was fully assembled. Also, that's actually from '03 as Bostrom was still riding the Duc in WSBK in '02.

Thanks for the Bostrom update. The caption for the race photo I nicked off the web says 2002 but it is clearly wrong. I didn't even think about it. He did finish the season 4th in 03 on the the Honda and rode again in 04 but I think it was on a I4 not a RC51 the second year. The paint job on those factory bikes is like the 04 production year with the polished frame and white on the nose and tail...which is why I just had to have one. If I could just find a Nicky Haden one now. Damn you BMiller

It was made by NewRay. It is 1/12th scale die cast. It actually looks pretty cool in person. The detail isn't real high but then again it was never an expensive model. It is about 6" long. If you were a model builder you could really improve it and make it a lot more realistic using this as a base. I did put mine together but kept the box perfect.

They also make 1/32 scale that you can find a lot easier. The bigger ones are tougher to find.
