1/9 BMW R75 with sidecar decals
Posted by plasticjunkie on Thursday, September 20, 2018 8:03 AM

I built this old Esci BMW bike back in the early 70s as a gift from my dearly departed brother. I remember the box sitting on top of one of the display shelves at Orange Blossom Hobbies in Miami. He knew how much I wanted it so he bought it for me. Well looks like 48 years later she needs a makeover, parts are coming loose and decals have flaked off. I will re paint her and can save some of the decals except the unit markings and tags on the back and top of the front fender where the white background has yellowed really bad. It has been re issued by Italery and even Revell with different markings a couple of years back.

If anyone has left over decals for this bike or even a scan of the decal sheet so I can print  my own decal sheet will be highly appreciated.

Afraid i can't help with the decals, but look forwardto seeing this fully restored. I really should grab some of these kits, especially the BMW and kettenkrad.

I'm ordering that kit from ScaleHobbyist today or tomorrow. It'll probably take a week in shipping, so if you don't get a leftover sheet or scan sooner, I'll be glad to scan the decals for you when it gets here.

Thanks Mike that would be great! This is a REALLY nice kit and well detailed even for its age. You will love building it.

I also have 2 of the old ESCI German 1/9 scale soldiers and thought of making it a vignette just to have something different. I also have the Dragon 1/9  Zundapp  and Fallschirmjager rider. His Zeltbahn rain pattern camo will be VERY interesting to paint.
