Ducati 916Tamiya 1/12 scale

August 16, 2014 · in Automotive · · 22 · 2.9K

This is the latest motorcycle kit I've finished, 's scale kit of the famous 916.

The prototype was first shown at the 1993 Milan motor show, and was instantly hailed as a design classic, and has certainly been a major influence in motorcycle design since.

The kit is a typical Tamiya product, no major problems as long as you follow the instructions. It's finished in Tamiya's spray Italian Red, and their acrylics were used elsewhere.

If you want to know more please look at the WIP in the new Automotive Group.

Thanks for looking.

  6. Stunning George, as normal.
    Great work and finish.

  7. Lovely work on an iconic bike George. I only just noticed the work in progress article you did on it the other day! Ducati's do seem to have a very different engine design and frame compared to the Japanese sports bikes, which is evident in your build stages. Will you be doing more road bikes now?

    I'm in my new house and have got my gear out of storage. Work on the next R1 is underway, but I'm converting it into a race bike for something a bit different. No idea how it is going to turn out! Good or bad it should be posted in a couple of weeks.

    Stunning work as always George, your an inspiration to all of us bike modelers!

  8. What a gem, George! Your work is always first rate and the subject matter is obviously something you know well. Thanks for sharing another beauty.
