Video Worlds first fullsize plastic motorcycle kits

And you thought Airfix was fiddly and annoying

A BRITISH firm is making what it says are the world's first Airfix-style full-size motorcycle model kits.

The plastic kits have over 180 vacuum-formed parts and are the 'actual size of the real motorcycle,' according to the Somerset based company, Full Size Kits.

They can be assembled by two people and have a 'unique sit-on feature' which 'allows you to carefuly rest on the saddle for photographs'.

At £525 per kit, you could alternatively buy a real non-running motorcycle and carefully rest on that for photographs. But the models don't have to be Sorned, and are more likely to confound parking wardens, as illustrated in this video made by Full Size Kits.

So far only one model is available, the Route 66 Classic, a 'design replica of typical 1960s classic American motorcycles'.

Company founder Peter Manning said: 'Lots of your readers will remember Airfix-type plastic kits when they were kids... Now, the world's first full-size plastic motorcycles.

'We launched the website on Monday 9th Feb 2015 and have had many YouTube hits.'
