Pocher 1/4 Ducati rebuild


Recommended Posts

Hi all here is one I did was bought for me by my wife for my 60th.

I didn't do it red I did blue (same colour as our car at the time) then I took it back out of the shed and had another go at it I much prefer the second version.

Here is the first build of it.

And here is the start of the new build

Oh come on you can plainly see from the1/9 triumph in the background it's not .

I I love the 1/6 tamiya mc kits I have done loads of them (someone even stole one of my builds and past it off as theirs on YouTube

I think you certainly could pass some of these off as the real deal.... I actually had to look twice on a couple of them to make sure, and even then I questioned that it was a model......  it sure looks like a real engine....

Like Harv and Jeff I am sitting here thinking that is a real engine (knowing it is not).
Fabulous outstanding work sir.  I am truly impressed. :unworthy:

As I may have said before this kit was way over priced and felt like they had been penny pinching from the start, for instance nearly all the electrical connections are moulded but not implemented they don't even supply an assortment of wires for you to add the wiring ( I mean what would that have cost I would happily spent another tenner on the kit if they had added them) It was really hard finding the correct thickness of wire for each part in the right scale.

Even a lot of the decals were the wrong scale and had to be replaced.

If you place it in an outdoor environment and take a photo from below nobody could tell it from the real motorcycle!

Awesome work on all the models you present here! All stunning builds! 
 

Where do you store all these giant scale models?
