Here's a build I feel obligated to do, since I own a few Ducatis.

The kit I'm starting with.  I'm also going to use the upgrade kit from Tamiya and a set of aftermarket decals for the tobacco sponsorship.

Nice subject Paul. While down in the Dominican I saw a couple Chinese knock offs of this bike, I had to get right up to it before I could se it wasn't a Duc.

Nice finds Sam.

Thanks guys !!

I did some more on the bike.  Since the pipes are done, they got installed along with the radiator, hoses and forks.

Thanks Buck.

I've spent some time decaling the parts.



I also got the rear shock together with the upgrade parts.

Paul, this is looking great. Red is the only colour for Ducatis. They sound like a V twin should should sound.


Cheers,

Chris

Chris...all four of my Ducatis are red.  Like you said...the way they should be.

I got it on its wheels tonight.
