The Ducatti Panigale is to my liking one of the most spectacular motorcycles of the past decade. Thanks to Tamiya we can have a model of it, both were the reasons why I decided to build it trying to get the most detailed model I could , taking advantage of the fact that as it was a mass production model, it would be possible for me to get a lot of references. Not only I built and superdetailed the model, but also made a slightly and own customized version, a real Panigale, as I would like to have. The aim of this article, is to show with pictures and their comments the work accomplished as a guide and to give ideas of the details that can be added or showing in some cases how to do the different tasks.

 


For this construction, I used the Kit #14129, the Tamiya Detail Up set #12657, aftermarket parts from Top Studio, Hobby design and T2M, aluminium tubes from K&S, plasticard , plastic rods, Zero paints, Alclad, Tamiya, Dupont lacquer and of course all I found in my spare box. So, let’s go ahead with my Ducati 1199 S Panigale “ Custom”, I hope you like it.
