Peter Milgate Posted October 17, 2022 Share Posted October 17, 2022 Taking a break from big scale stuff so had a quick look through the stash and stumbled upon this, Original idea was to do some plastic (I've just finished a MFH 1/12 Ferrari) so wanted a change...so will do two kits together this little metal kit (never made one of these before!!) and a Tamiya Ducati Panigale Martine (because I can't resist a Martini colour scheme) This was purchased off Fleabay on a whim. Paid very little money for it but it looks like a detailed little thing...so, on with the build... As you can see, some holes were already drilled, but it wasn't until later I would realise they were a bit big... A bit of CA glue was used to build up a few sub-asembles...front wing, main chasis and rear wing. This was all done very quickly in an afternoon/evening session. Must be overdue a hiccup surely....Oh yes, the carpet monster claimed a wing mirror...bugger...so small I nearly cried, a quick search on bench (as I heard it ricochet off a jar, but to no avail) so I thought I would try and knock one up from scrap plastic...I tried and it seems okay to me... Parts prepared, polished and ready for a blast of Acid Etch primer. I used Upol No 8 for this, which I had discovered during my MFH build. Worked fine there for metal so figured if it ain't broke...I have ordered some Zero paints pink undercoat, so will lay that down via airbrush as a base for the red, which I have Pre-2004 Rosso Ferrari Formula 1, also Zero paint. This will have a few days to hardened before I start base colours, pink, red then some masking for semi gloss black ready for carbon fibre areas. I'm hoping this will be doable as built up parts, figured it would be better than trying to build front and rear wings from the bits once painted...time will tell. 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
