Moto Guzzi V10 Centauro (Tamiya 1/12)

Recommended Posts

A few days ago I finished this Tamiya 1/12th scale Moto Guzzi V10 Centauro. It is actually my father's kit, and I have built it for him in the colours he wanted.

The kit was built OOB and painted with various Tamiya, Alclad, Model Master, Humbrol and Vallejo paints. The pearly white colour is Tamiya gloss white mixed with Alclad Aluminium.

Thanks Steve. I am usually an airplane builder so it was a bit outside my comfort zone. :)

Lovely model. They were always odd looking bikes, even for Guzzis but I'd still love to have a ride on one.

Thanks Andy, Rick and Billy. :)

I wasn't aware that it is becoming a rare kit. I know the Ducati my dad is looking for is rare but that's another story.

Very nice Jens. For future reference, Tamiya do an excellent Pearl White in their TS spray can range. Which Ducati is your Dad looking for?

Thanks Rob and Steve. This is my second MC but I've got a few more I have to build (mostly for other people).

My dad is looking for the Tamiya 1/12 Ducati 900SS (the black one).

Ah sorry, I can't help. I have an 888, an MHR and a pair of 916s still in the stash. Never had a 900SS. Good luck with the hunt!
