Rick Cooper takes a first look of the new Tasca Zundapp KS750 w/ sidecar. This one looks like fun for large scale builders.

This is going to be an awesome model once it gets into some creative builder's hands. This scale really provides the potential for fantastic detailing and with Tasca's other 1/24 release now the possibilities are opening up for dioramas as well.

I can see me ending up with a couple of these!

Thanks a lot Rick for the very exhaustive review

Spoke detail looks impressive and tread assembly solution is cleever indeed

An oustanding kit

it would be great if tasca wlould produce more kits and more subjects...

Thanks for the review Rick - just one thing: The KS750 engine wasn't a horizontally opposed twin, but a very shallow V twin (170 degrees, nobody seems to know why Zündapp did it) only noticeable if you get a good view from the front. I'm sure the rivet-counters among us would be interested in finding out if TASCA fell into the trap and made the engine a flat twin?
Cheers,
Dierk
