“A semi-pejorative term for polystyrene plastic figurines and miniature model kits made for tabletop role-playing games and wargame simulations, particularly the popular Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 lines. The “crack” designation applies in that fans of these types of games seem “addicted” to them like a drug, and crave buying, assembling, and painting the models, spending large amounts of money and time in doing so, and anxiously await the latest, most finely-detailed releases.”  — Urban Dictionary

After winning the 2003 Riders Championship, his third consecutive world title with Honda, Valentino Rossi shocked the racing world announcing he was transferring to rival Yamaha in 2004. At the opening race of the 2004 season in South Africa, Rossi was mounted on his new dream machine, the Yamaha YZR-M1, and emerged from a fierce battle up front to take his first victory riding for Yamaha. He continued to show an aggressive style of racing, marking 9 more wins and clinching his fourth consecutive world title. Rossi achieved the tremendous feat of winning consecutive championships riding for two separate manufacturers. Who would have predicted this outcome at the start of the 2004 season? Now, you can relive the thrills of this amazing season with Tamiya’s 1/12 scale model of Rossi’s Yamaha YZR-M1. Feel the excitement of world class racing as you build the MotoGP’s latest world champion bike.
