Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

Recommended Posts

Hi all well I've finished the tank and sprayed the clear coat on the rest of the paintwork.

Such a gorgeous colour (even if I do say so myself)

Good work nuts.

Shame about the paint failure on the tank but nice recovery.

Probably too late but.. I've never owned a Ducati but every bike I've owned the inside of all panels have been unpainted very dark grey plastic.

I like to think that I can make anything out of nothing ( no, sorry, thats the ex-wife lol), but my painting skills are zero....I've screwed-up many a model when paint gets involved,

Stunning paintwork Mr Nuts!:worthy:

Good job, Sir!!

 

Cheers, H

 

She's gonna be a stunna!!

 Love the colour Ken, Early Ducati's had fibreglass bodywork which was same colour inside and out not sure about the new ones

 they are all plastic now. Ducati's look the dog's ??????? but are a real pain to ride.

 

Mark.

Hi all well I've detailed up the battery and added the upgrade kit decal (the smaller decal is the one that came with the kit.

I must say I am surprised with a kit of this size and price of the huge amount of missing detail, mostly seems to be wiring which surely wouldn't be that expensive to add to the kit.

Hi all started on the fuel system added the butterfly valves made from aluminium foil onto which I put brass leaf.

Then I cut it to fit

Then cut a piece of sprue then halved it.

Covered it with the brass leaf then drilled two holes and added a couple of screws

Very nice scratch work.  This is one of those details not seen, but YOU know it's there......and that's what matters :)

 

I have a lot of those in the Aventador build!

Given the cost of these kits, I'm horrified at the amount of re-work and alteration that has to be done to get them right! Or even just to fit together....

 

I salute your efforts Sir.

Hi all bit more added here (this is just the supplied detail loads of wiring and connectors still to add) ( I really don't know why they don't supply varying thicknesses of wire surly it wouldn't add more than a tenner to the cost of the kit)

As I said loads more detail to add but couldn't resist trying it on the engine.
