NewRay 1/12 scale model motorcycles are highly detailed and measure approximately 6.5 inches long by 4.5 inches high by 2 inches wide. They are made of a combination of diecast metal and plastic parts. Although the box is labed as die-cast, the metal content is quite small in the actual model, it seems to be mainly on the fuel tank. They have a working kick stand, the handle bars can steer and the wheels can spin. These models don’t need any assembly or painting. They are ready for display out of the box (or even inside the box). These models, as any other scale models, are fragile and not intended to be used as toys to be played with unless one is very careful (Recommended for 8 year old and older).
Branding and paint schemes are accurate. They come packaged in a window box which measures approximately 8 inches long by 5.75 inches high by 2.75 deep.
The Indian Chief is a motorcycle that was built by the Hendee Manufacturing Company and the subsequent Indian Motocycle Company from 1922 to the end of the company's production in 1953. The Chief was Indian's "big twin", a larger, more powerful motorcycle than the more agile Scout used in competition and sport riding.
When Indian resumed civilian production after World War II, they revived only the Chief line. Production of Indian motorcycles ended with the last Chief made in 1953.
