My first completed model!

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. Finally I completed my first model since primary school :)

 

Tamiya 1/12 Ducati 1199 Panigale S, I think it came out ok for a first one. Drilling out the brake discs wasn't fun though...

 

PS - Can you spot the mistake?

Very nice!  You nailed the sheen of the tires...for a new bike.

I don't mind that a model of a bike looks showroom fresh, that's how I do it too, but....the front tire is mounted backwards. You can see the rotational arrow in the close up. Should be easy to flip it around though.

 

Anyway, nice job on the kit, paint is fantastic!

Dude, that is by no means an uncommon mistake by tire fitters, especially the new guys in the shop.

Yup, it happened to me once on my VFR800I at the Honda shop where I bought it! I pointed it out and faces were red and it was fixed in about 15 minutes.
