“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


Plastic is an addiction!

Finished: Tamiya Yamaha YZR-M1 ’09 1/12

Fantastic kit again from Tamiya. First bike i built together with the Valencia edition. Not a great finish.

During the 2009 MotoGP season, regulation changes were implemented which designated a sole tire supplier and limited the number of engines a team could use. The Yamaha YZR-M1 2009 was designed with these changes in mind. The frame’s structural balance and rider center of gravity were revamped while the more powerful and durable engine’s performance was further increased through the use of a highly-precise engine management system. Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo rode the bike to six and four wins respectively to claim a 1-2 finish atop the riders’ standings, enabling Yamaha to take the triple crown of Rider, Team, and Manufacturer Championships.
