Actual Hirth couplings in the crank pieces?

No, just individual crank pieces with one piece rods. The kit is detailed but does not have that level of detail

Is that like our family's standing joke of the husband giving his wife a rack to hold his tobacco pipes?

No not at all, we've built a few model things together, last was a flying Wright biplane kit. We're working on the '55 at the moment and we've always wanted to play with a 4 cam.

Finished mine this weekend.

Pretty cool piece. It has some mistakes that those with a passion for these engines will notice. You will ahave to take your time to carefully remove all casting flashing etc. especially in the valve guides and other moving parts for smooth operation. Some silicone lube on selected components also helps. Outside of this I have to say that it is a pretty cool kit.
