This kit was one of the more famous Tom Daniel releases back in the 70’s Tom Daniel has designed many awesome model kits for Monogram for about three decades. Not only has he designed some really cool looking cars but he also designed some really radical motorcycles. This is just one of those radical motorcycle kits. His official website states he has designed over 85 model kits and this is one has to be one of the best – just for the cool factor. As the box states, “Raked out front wheel; padded seat; high-rise sissy bar; this mean ‘lil chopper’s got it all.”


For the Modeler: Even though this kit is long out of production (1973), they are still readily available at online auctions and garage sales. This is a Monogram 1:8 scale Tom Daniel designed Popper Chopper Mini Bike model kit. Judging from the construction difficulty it is a light skill level 2 model kit if only for the decals. This kit features a detailed engine, “mod” decals and a miniature helmet. The kit consist of ~37 parts molded in yellow and chrome and clear plastic; red vinyl control cable; 2 vinyl (2-piece) tires; with waterslide decals and instructions. Finished dimensions are; Length: 10-3/4″, Width: 3″, Height: 5-1/2″.


Covered in this Review: If you want to perfect your build; basic construction; preparing parts for better finishing; adhesive selections and applications; alternate assembly sequence suggestions for fit and ease of finishing; seam identification and repairs; paint selection and application; engine construction, painting, and detailing; areas to avoid gluing for function; drivetrain finishing selections and methods; detailing the stoplight for realism; instruction errors; are all fully examined in this 10 page, full-color Step-by-Step review.
