Ducati 916 – Tamiya 1/12

Posted by Paul On May - 18 - 2009

I have 2 friends that own or have owned this motorcycle. I noticed how nice Tamiya does their mototcycle models and decided I would build one. I used the Tamiya Ferrari Red rattle can to spray the bike fenders and skirts etc. The exhaust pipe was sprayed various colors to depict heat discoloration. Bare Metal Foil was used to replicate hose clamps, and I sanded down the tires to show a little wear. I’m a 4 wheel vehicle type of guy – but I do love my Ducati.

Here are some construction photos:
