A '50's Triumph TR100 Racer in 1/8 scale
This guy never ceases to amaze me!
I know I said it yesterday, but this time it's truer than ever!
Just 24 hours after Manuele Villa sent me the photos of his beautiful BMW RS500, he sent me another batch of fine photos!
In fact, another '50's racing motorcycle, a Triumph TR100 private racer, converted from an old Revell 1/8 kit (discontinued), found in a flea market!
Note that almost the 70% of the kit's original parts, are modified!
