Tamiya Ducati 888.
Posted by PatW on Friday, June 11, 2021 4:53 PM

Bought as an 'already started' only the wheel stand though. Built box stock except the decals were trash other than the Ducati logo, the Dunlop front fork, the 'carbon' ones on the exhausts and the AGIP ones. The new number plates are white decal paper and the numbers come from my stash. And a new one for me attaching all of the plastic hollow tubing 'cables'!

Right on Pat!  I dig the bikes.  I've done a couple and have a bunch in the stash.  Was this a Tamiya kit?  They are so fun to build.  MotoGP is right up there with F1 racing in terms of entertainment - best racing on the planet.

Thanks,

John

Thanks guys, yes it's Tamiya quality. No paint on the body parts purely polished plastic the red really sparkles.

Without the main decals it looks like a club racer due to it's age.

Very nice work Pat, the way you got that plastic to shine is incredible. I have the Tamiya 1199 Panigale sitting in my stash, had a few things planned ahead of it but your great work is inspiring me to move it up the list!
