Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

Recommended Posts

Hi all well this has been on and off half a dozen times as I couldn't find a way for the clutch reservoir horizontal then I checked some ref pics to find it's at an angle on the real bike. I was getting so stressed trying to get it level and horizontal, I'd have been pulling my hair out if I had some.

Hi all it’s been a while but here is the next update (what a pita this was) I snapped the screw in the steering head clamp so had to drill it out then re tap and guess what I cross threaded it and snapped it off again (don’t know how it’s still in one piece)  silver 911 has some PE radiator grill made to upgrade the radiator he kindly gave me the email of the company that produced them for him and gave me permission to use his fins so I’ve ordered them (I feel a bit guilty as they cost him50 quid )( costs for creating the pattern I suppose) only costing me 21.60, anyway it’s a vast improvement over the kit supplied part.

Hi all I was thinking this is getting very heavy and the exhaust is getting loose from the weight of it so I’ve temporarily added the forks to get the weight off the exhaust. I’ve finally finished the handle bars (well apart from the wiring)

Hi all this is how Pocher would have you build the rad

Of course I could just fill the holes and weather it and it would be a whole lot better 
But with Ron Clark’s PE it will be a whole league better I just can’t wait for them to get here.

amazing how they can charge an arm and a leg for the kit, do a good job of most of it, then skimp on pe for the big, very visible radiator. would have cost them pennies to put it in.

 

Looks ace now though!

Thing I also find strange is they go to the trouble of moulding most of the wire connections and channels for the cabling then only supply the tubing for the hydraulics it would only have cost them pennies to add a few different thicknesses of wire too.

Thanks so much Ron that means a lot coming from you.

Hi all here is the next update I made a bit of an oops in duplicating the wiring of the rad fan which I had done the other end further back in the build will have to watch that in the future (especially as this build is using all my built up stocks of wire)

Hi all here is an update where nothing has been done. It's just that since the front wheel is now on I can compare and show just what a beast this is these range in scale from the humongous Duc at 1/4 then the Katana at 1/6 the Kwak at 1/8 and the Yam at 1/12 these all have similar size engines so they're all about the same size in real life.

Hi all next update been adding the break lines and front mudguard then onto the electrical bits, it would be so much easier if I hadn't started adding detail, this is going to be the most intensive added details bit.

Hi all here is another update, all of the wiring here is added detail, none of it is supplied with the kit  it makes a big difference adding it. I still don't understand why they don't supply it as 90% of the connectors are moulded and even the missing ones are easy enough to scratch build .

yes it is simple details such as wiring which bring out authenticity.

 

If not for the DVD tapes behind, your amazing bike could be 1:1 the real thing, even if the tyres are new and the seat is not yet in place.

 

i think this is one of your best builds if not the best, hats off !

It would be difficult to photograph it like that if it were in my butt cheeks (I'm not as young as I once was)
