Rossi’s secret weapon!

After breaking his leg in June last year at Mugello, Valentino Rossi surprised everyone with his remarkably quick recovery 40 days later at the German round in the  Sachsenring – so what was the secret behind his amazing recovery!  We all know how fantastically resilient and determined an individual he is – I’m sure his mindset and focus were a key part of the recovery process but I’ve no doubt the medical care (and TLC) he received from the doctors and nurses had a  lot to do with it!

My own take on it is merely meant to raise a smile (no offence intended to anyone) – so using a Legend 1/12 scale female figure called “Need for Speed” (which I happen to have lying around) I modified it slighty (with a nurses hat from Miliput) to represent a very “Hot and Speedy” nurse, and combined with a 1/12 scale Yamaha from Minichamps she looks ready to race to the side of anyone in need of assistance!  I’ve given it a coat of primer so I’ll paint it up (not sure what colors yet) and I’ll include some appropriate Rossi decals I also happen to have to hand – more later.
