1988 Yamaha YZR500 (OW98)
This is the first bike from Hasegawa that I have built.  It is a very well engineered kit that was a pleasure to build.  Hasegawa has
also done something that I wish Tamiya would do with their kits. The the wheels, swingarm and front forks use small screws for
assembly, however, the head of the screw is covered over with a styrene piece that depicts the proper hex bolt head or nut.  A real
improvement over the exposed Phillips screw heads on other kits.
