PostSubject: Some of the bike kits that I have built over the late.   Sun Oct 06, 2013 10:34 pm

The first kits that i had built in ages, was a so-so attempt at the 1/9 Ducati "Foggy" Monster.

My next kit was supplied by Mad Steve, namely the Tamiya 1/12 YZR, this was a great step up and quite a challenge.

Now that the modelling bug had truly bitten again, this was followed by the Tamiya 1/12 Ducati 900SS, with a couple of after market bits. PE mesh cover for carbs, PE disc brakes, PE hose clamps and rivets. Had a ball building this - there was a steep leaning curve on processes and techniques, which resulted in a decent attempt. Flawed, but I was happy with the end result.

The Tamiya 1/12 Honda NSR500, a decent kit but this had the terrible decals, so in the end it's a bit of a bodge and a compromise and it probably shows.

My latest project is the Tamiya 1/12 Ducati NCR. I hoping to up my game on this, though I have found this quite costly and time consuming with regards to researching, ordering bits, modifying, making mistakes and repairing. All I have at the moment is the pic below.

Finally, I thought that I'd add this for some old "'n boer maak 'n plan". It's my home made spray booth. I have cobbled it together with bunch of bits and scrap laying around - like an old bathroom extractor fan, boards of an old cupboard, a flower pot holder, wire mesh, old PC stand, couple nuts, bolts, screws, silicon and an under counter LED light fitting. What do you think?

I'm no where near the rest of you guys in terms of skill and finish, but I sure as hell do get a kick out this hobby and I'm happy to share it with you and to be open to any critique in the future.

Yeah, I love those Ducati Monsters with the naked frame, just sex on wheels!
