    Plus, I’m not sure if I want to build the Ducati in red, it looks a bit boring compared to their previous superleggera’s.
    What about this?

    Hi Richard @richardmcstay48gmail.com, @brithebuilder, @anthonyricco, @gblair.com, @rory, @bikequeen, @johnb, @fiveten, @eb801. Good morning everyone, with the Chinese new year celebrations over, bar the inevitable hangover, let’s get on with it.

    First @gblair, thanks for praising my paintwork, only the insides of the cowlings were painted black, the outsides got the pink/red treatment.

    Hi Richard, the blue looks very cool but not sure how you would get those blue graduated markings, is this an aftermarket decal set? Tamiya do provide plain Ducati markings as well as their graduated red ones, so you could use those. And, yes, I’ve started on the HP4 but didn’t want to post anything until I’ve finished the Ducati, talking of which:


    Here are the side cowlings with most of the transfers applied, there are quite a few of them, including the graduated red markings, I’m not sure how well they show up in the photos. Tamiya do include some of the carbon fibre markings, but I think the wheels and winglets would benefit from that as well. My plan was to get the Studio 27 carbon fibre set but they don’t seem to be available in China yet. Still some work to do on these cowlings before fitting them.

    More to come, thanks for looking and commenting, and happy modelling.

    As always George... great work! The red looks great and the decals and final assembly will make it look like the real thing.

    @chinesegeorge - it really is coming along nicely George. The decals look like they would have been a real challenge over those complex surfaces but they seem to have laid down really nicely. Great work George!

    I’ve got my studio 27 decals on pre order with a Spanish retailer called Spotmodel.
    There isn’t a decal sheet for the blue design, on closer inspection, the stripes might be hard to pull off with masking tape.

    Let’s Get This Ducati Finished

    Hi everyone, @brithebuilder, @anthonyricco, @gblair, @rory, @bikequeen, @johnb, @fiveten, @eb801, @richardmcstay48gmail.com.

    Not a lot left to do now, attach the winglets to the cowlings, fit the cowlings, add the footrests, some touch ups needed, and we’re done.

    More pictures to come. Happy modelling.

    Thanks, Spiros @fiveten.
    The upper winglets are held on with tiny magnets, removing the winglets reveals the screws which attach the cowlings.


    And finally the rear number plate assembly is added.

    I hope the weather is improving and I can take some photos outside before posting it in Headlines.

    Thanks to everyone for your help and support with this build. Next project will be revealed very soon. Happy modelling.
