Own a piece of motorcycle history with this incredible 1972 Kawasaki Z1 Early Type Candy Brown 1:6 Scale Museum Model! As the name suggests, this is no ordinary model kit. This is a museum piece. Five years in the making, with 1,600+ piece construction and many paint applications, Yamato's Kawasaki Z1 is the most accurate scale model to own, down to the very nuts and bolts - nuts and bolts that ingeniously can be removed so the model can be disassembled, assembled, and ultimately customized just like an actual Z1! A truly groundbreaking achievement, it does practically everything imaginable, except run. In 1972, Kawasaki made history with its Z1. Yamato makes history again with this astonishing model kit. Ages 15 and up.

In making the Z1 1:6 Museum Model, Yamato set out to include every last detail, down to the engraved logos of individual parts. With the passage of forty years, however, the availability of an actual Z1 upon which to base the model was obviously quite limited! It was even harder to find a Z1 with all its original parts, as over time parts have been refurbished, modified, or added. In order to perfectly replicate the Z1, Yamato had to painstakingly search out and obtain genuine, original parts from motorcycle shops and passionate collectors around the world. Then, utilizing the latest in 3-D laser scanning technology, they took each part, scanned them one by one, and transferred the data into CAD to create precise prototypes for flawless molds. But that's not all...

What's even more amazing is that there are many small parts used on a real Z1 that are too small to replicate in 1:6 scale. Some are less than 1-mm in thickness! That's way too small to duplicate utilizing conventional injection molding. So, Yamato began its 1:6 scale Museum Model project with this challenge in mind, along with the goal of flawlessly replicating the Z1 by finding ways to overcome such technical obstacles. In the end, Yamato employed an elaborate process of separating, gluing, and painting small parts, or replicating them using special synthetic materials more suitable for such extreme sizes than die-cast or plastic. And their efforts certainly paid off!
