This is a group build of Tamiya nicely made Ducati Panigale 1199. As usual, i do not keep any sort of record during the build. These are more like random photos i took during the process.....
Tamiya official Detail-Up Parts, mostly consist of the 2 front fork and a few parts.
Top Studio Photo-etched parts
Decided not to use Top Studio's full photo etch, for the center piece, i use back the original Tamiya part. At least it provides sufficient strength and accuracy is guaranteed. The top studio on is way too difficult for me to construct.
Initially, I was thinking of using aluminium tube to replace the too-yellowish metal tube provided. As a result, have gotta trim down the diameter of the plastic part. However, scrapped the idea in the end.
Top Studio PE brake disc, however, the tamiya nuts comes in really handy!
These are just some random photos of the engine part. Gold is MrHobby SM02, Stainless Steel -SM03, Flat Aluminium - SM01 silver + flat base (which i think still a little too dark), Semi Gloss Black is Mr Hobby 1500 black surfacer
Chrome parts, done by Alclad II polished Aluminium
The rim decal.... well, i screwed it up. So ended up masked it n spray with the color i like :p
Front brake caliper, was kinda worried about enamel wash because of the very tiny wordings. But it turned out great!
Can't really see the chrome effect at all.... but i kinda like how the clear red turn out...
More random photos.....
