The news from my Italian friend Manuele Villa are coming steadily...

The Japauto Honda 950SS is his latest attachment to me for your joy... Today I send you another three pictures: A '70' Japauto Honda 950 SS. It is a large scale (1/8) kit from Heller. All these french models were beautiful but, unfortunately, they are discontinued, only the BMW R100RT models in French Police version are still in production. I don't know why, but i detest French people!! I found it, some years ago, in a little model shop, situated in Stadiou str. (near Omonoia sq.), in Athens.

Main modification :

Wheels with lathed aluminium rings with 0.4mm steel spokes
new decals (from stock, the original one i found was too aged)

And a request from Mr. Villa...
Addressed to anyone reading these lines...
I have only five models by Heller in my showcase:
Laverda 750 SF
Norton 850 Roadster
Kawasaki 1000 LTD
BMW R100RT (gendarmerie)
BMW R100 S
Now I am searching for a Laverda 750 SFC and a BMW R100RS, can you help me ?
Any help, will be greatly appreciated... Please write to Mr.Manuele Villa
