Ducati 916

Here I am with my newest project. The mighty Ducati 916. One of my favorit bikes all time. As a young child I had posters above my bed and dreamed all day about this bike.

I have now 3 of them, unlucky for me not in 1:1 scale but all 1/12 Tamiya kits :D. Time to build one!

First I started to collect a few better looking bolts for the fairings. I removed the plastic ones and already drilled holes for the new bolts. I also primered them and painted in Ferrari Rosso Corso.

A new update:

I painted the engineblock in Alclad Dull Aluminium. I painted the engine components in a mix of green/grey to match the real color.

https://modelbrouwers.nl/media/cache/59/ee/59ee640467d72f302639a6866b088bfe.jpg

The swingarm is painted metallic grey. The shock components are painted yellow and silver with clear orange on top.

https://modelbrouwers.nl/media/cache/65/6a/656a9d6cd5b46aff33e6e25d97ca2615.jpg

A few Ducati's at Google showed me a shiny bronze frame, but some have a matt bronze frame and wheels. I painted the frame and wheels with Zero Frame Bronze for Ducati. I liked the matt look of it, so I'll keep it like that.

Yes I don't know why they paint an engine in green. The Senna edition is metallic grey which is much nicer I think.

Ok, a new update.

I painted the fairings and clearcoated them. Unfortunately one of the fairings felt on the ground and got some dust in the wet clearcoat. I will polish this part till all the dust is gone. I also did some carbon work on a few parts.

https://modelbrouwers.nl/media/cache/8e/bf/8ebfcd392ad2125132b1af2de24ecb79.jpg


After this I started to paint the exhaust. First I sprayed everything in gloss black. Then I added the carbon decals on the mufflers. I clearcoated them and masked them off to paint the chrome. Then I made a mix of Titanium gold, copper and pale gold from Alclad to paint the exhaustpipes. I think they look pretty good.

https://modelbrouwers.nl/media/cache/06/7a/067af718a9a32d03cb009207f4ddc699.jpg


I also made a start on the frontfork. A lot of masking was done. First I painted them titanium gold and the lower part in a metallic brown. Then i clearcoated the parts. After that I painted the brake calipers in Pale gold.
I drilled out the brake discs and painted them gold and polished aluminium.

First of all, I just bought a new camera so I struggled a bit on taking photos...

Allright, the ducati received his exhausts and a few other small parts. I also build the frontfork and mounted it on the bike. It's now a bike!

Iceracer - Great work on the exhaust pipes and cans

This build is coming along nicely

Thank you for doing the WIP

I wish more builders of bikes would do the WIPs

Cheers

I polished the fallen fairing and did the last assembly on the left over parts.

And it's now completed :wink:

This kit is a very nice kit, and builds just perfect. I'm in love with this model, and I finally have a scale model version in my display cabinet. I only added carbon decals and rivets for the fairings. Nothing more. I think I have proved that not every model needs expensive detailsets.

Very nicely done Iceracer

I agree this came out very nicely for not having a super detail kit added to it.

The pictures are good too -

did you do a WIP for the Panigale in the pictures?

Cheers
John
