Great build Gabriel and great finish.
It was fun to follow along and I have seen and learnt a fair bit from the build.
thank you for following my trip from beginning to the end. It was fun (well, most of the time
). And the one to learn the most from this adventure it was me. As stated earlier it's my first motorcycle ever and my first 1/12 ever. I'm even more glad to find that my build helped someone else. Cheers!
Gabriel My Friend,
OMG !! you've reached the level where your finished replica (it's way more then a plastic model at this point) looks as real as the real deal!! Your model and finish is that good. Anyone looking at your finished pictures couldn't possibly tell the difference.
You've actually given me the final push I needed to start building race cars from years past that have meaning to me as I've been a racing enthusiast since I was 13 years old. And having this forum on KitMaker Network makes alternating my builds so much easier, and I'm still with my online modeling friends.
So what's your next build going to be?
my good adviser and friend: thank you sir for the continuous support since you joined the thread to the end! Your advice it's always highly appreciated (since I was struggling with my Chow Hound
some three years aback) and I am genuinely happy you turned back to the hobby after the break.
If you found my build inspirational it is for my astonishment: a month ago I had not the slightest idea how this build was to end.
I feel myself dragged into auto modelling more and more...
...and yes, I use Automodeler for alternative builds as well.
My close future plans: finish the MPC Mack DM600
which I started for Big Rigs
campaign, right here on Automodeler. Next I'm going to cross the border into your Kingdom - a Stuka with Italian markings for MTO campaign. Finally, I cannot wait for the Porsche
Campaign in September. I just received for review a batch of paints from Tru-Color
and among them it's a pearl coal that I cannot wait to try it out
You know already I like trouble, don't you
Then I have a few promises to fulfill for my YT channel crowd... and the heaviest it's a Russian T-44 with over thousand parts... so much I can anticipate right now...
I know you were watching silently the build. Thank you for the positive feed-back!
Gabriel, what a great build, its been great to follow along and see your trials and tribulations but finally get to the end with a beautifully finished example of a Ducati.
Thank you so much! I'm really glad you have enjoyed the build!
Superb REVEAL Gabriel!
Congratulations on your finish!
It's been a great ride (pun intended) and I'm looking forward to seeing the publication shots!
Thanks for sharing your build, have a few well deserved and we look forward to seeing what you've got in store for us next
, my friend, you really stick with this build all along and I am very grateful for that. The reason I delayed this last update was because I wanted you to see the Victoria cover. Please check the update down below and Thanks!LAST UPDATE
I re-glued today the mirror that I knocked down yesterday and resumed my picture taking because one side of the motorcycle was virtually missing (fairings on)PHOTOSHOP TIME
My idea of riding a motorcycle is completely tied with night time: chill air in a nice summer night, empty streets, fresher air and dubious loyalty girls. Since I've seen that Tamiya offers the option for night mode display, my plan was set. I chose Victoria, Australia for Russell. I usually add "Easter eggs" in my builds / features in recognition for my friends. The Camaro Baldwin I published last as review, for instance, has the Danish flag for license plate, as recognition for Jesper
's help along that build.
I will send for publishing the full feature as soon time allows me to write it down. I hope on July 17th the pilot episode on the video series dedicated to this build will be also published on my YT channel. Until then, here she comes...
Thanks again, guys, for your interest in this build and see you around! Joel
