Ducati 916

Hey guys here is a box stock build of a Tamiya Ducati 916 I did a few months ago.

You can see the complete build here.

Very nice duke,xrlent, it looks ready to ride.  Did you mix the pale gold frame and wheel colour yourself?  Cheers

Thanks nottheband, Yes I did mix the colors myself, they were tamiya colors. I've recorded the ratio if you like the color.

Hi firestarter. I'm not sure if there are magazines only for motorcycles. I'm assuming you mean model magazines. One place to try is www.hlj.com. They have a heap of magazines and books for modelling although some might be in Japanese. But they would have lots of reference pics. You could always purchase the 1:1 magazines for reference. There is a book called FAQ for painting cars and motorcycles which may be of uses to you but it's sort of a beginner book not much in the way of advanced techniques.

Cheers.

Steve the recipe for the pale gold color is really simple.. It's 1 Part X-11 and 5 parts X-12 (tamiya colors). Another color which is similar is called titanium gold (X-31 I think). Hope that helps you.
