Double Eagle motorcycle with sidecar with 629 pieces for $58.99
Many of these Lego-style kits are primarily aimed at a younger target group. This Double Eagle motorcycle with sidecar, which places more emphasis on realism, is perhaps more for collectors.
I confess that I am not an expert in motorcycles, especially those from the Second World War. Probably this kit is also based on a real model, at least it comes with a lot of small details. So especially building up here should be a lot of fun. A prerequisite for this is, of course, that the manual is comprehensible and well illustrated; unfortunately, photos of it are missing in the description.
Besides the detailed design it is especially cool that there is a built-in motor. So the motorcycle can really ride and can be controlled with the enclosed remote control. It doesn’t have the familiar shape of quadrocopters or other RC cars, but is just a block with battery compartment and two levers.
This Double Eagle motorcycle consists of a total of 629 individual parts, which should probably take one to two hours to assemble. The finished model is then 360 x 224 x 185 mm. So you have to clear a little space in the showcase.
The manufacturer Double Eagle (sometimes called Double E) appears only sporadically in the different shops. There are no comparable models at TomTop, AliExpress has a tank made of nearly 1500 parts, but it is much more expensive.
The price for the motorcycle is not really attractive. Yes, you probably pay more for a comparable Lego model (and Lego doesn’t actually have war vehicles in their range), but it’s not the great price. Over $200 for the tank is another house number.
