PostSubject: Mazda Rotary Engine by Minicraft   Mon 25 Feb 2013, 5:05 am

This Minicraft kit number 11201 is 1/5Th scale. The kit is a very simple build and makes an average display piece when finished. That is the good.

Now for the bad. The kit is full of flash. Some of it on the clear pieces is almost impossible to remove without scratching the clear pieces. The other touchy spot is the drive system. Minicraft used a simple planetary gear system to drive the rotors from the electric motor. The flash is so thick and the pitch of the teeth is so fine it is a real bear trying to clean them up without damage to the gears. The price at 25 bucks is not that bad. I give this kit a 5 on a 1-10 scale.
