Hi all well I've not actually started building it yet but I couldn't resist comparing it to the biggest scale I've built so far (1/6 bikes) these bikes are huge but putting the ducati crank case and gearbox along side it this is going to be enormous (baring in mind there are no cylinder heads or fuel intake on it) by the time I add those the engine will probably be twice this size.
I will probably being upsetting the purists among you as it won't be the box colours it will be a custom job.
Our daughter has a dachshund but it would be to big for him.

That is a hell of a kit, KP and with the additional parts will surely build up into a first class model of this Ducati superbike. At 1/4 scale it will be pretty big - almost like a paddock bike!
The Mad Max alike Katana looks interesting.

Hi all well I won't be here on my birthday so I got permission to start it today.
I decided to start on the exhaust as it has been noted as the worst fitting part of the whole kit, this thing is huge the bit of the exhaust I've started is the length of a 1/24 car and that's basically just the down pipe. So here is the start of this massive kit, I must say I'm buzzing with excitement.
I've plugged some of the screw holes
Then decided to add the first missing detail, the welding seam on the curved outside and inside section of the exhaust (i will add the weld seam round the other side when its finally attached to the rest of it)
I've not glued the two sections together yet to make drilling of the holes for the oxygen sensors easier.
There's loads of detail you could add just to this part and I'm going to try and add it all, I did say TRY.

Hi all well after an update on my samsung tab s2 it has made it totally useless for posting on forums so I'm now stuck with this incredibly slow and clumsy laptop so here is the next installment. i was following silver911 build of this and decided to emulate his enhancement of the exhaust joins and copied his use of aluminium foil on them.
also I've added the thickening where the oxygen sensors go
(its made from the phillips screw covers from a bedroom unit)
made a start on the engine too. Added some weathering as well. Put a rule in the last pic to give an idea of the size of this beast.

That engine is looking the business, KP. I'm a bit out of touch with modern bikes, is this Duke a big twin or a V4?

Made a start on the exhaust valve and made up the spring hangers soon be ready for priming.
It's a twin mate.
