Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale
« on: September 19, 2017, 08:06:54 PM »


Hi all well it's arrived man it's huge here is a pic of the box


And just for size comparison here it is along side a calor gas fire






The instruction manual


It's really well packaged






And here is the Paul Koo upgrade kit










I'm not allowed to start it till my birthday on the 26th of next month though (although I wasn't allowed to open it then);)

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.

It's your model so your rules  :-)) If you had some model engineering tools you could probably build working parts for the engine and gearbox at that scale! Am I right in thinking that some of the parts are Diecast?

I will probably get accused of being a purist now, but I have never ever seen anyone custom paint a Ducati. Bear in mind that a Ducati is one of those bikes that aspires envy in non-owners, so as an owner you want nobody to be in any doubt as to what your bike is.
But as @ballstanksian said, it's up to you.

Your model, you paint it in whatever colour scheme you wish......you are the one building it, for you........go for it K.
Deep impact blue is a very nice colour.

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.

Made a start on the exhaust valve and made up the spring hangers soon be ready for priming.

Hi all I've started weathering the exhaust I'm using Uschi metal powders and a combination of copper and blue grey dry brushed on, still more to do but it looks promising






Added some more engine details like the generator wires

Hi all well here is the first disappointment with the upgrade kit he supplies the steel beads to make the banjo connectors for various connections but then tells you to use poacher 2 millimetre bolts for the head of the banjo connector (there are none supplied in the kit only cross head screws) I realise Paul has built loads of poacher kits, this is my first so I don't have any poacher 2 mill bolts, what I do have though is these.


So onwards and upwards


I've made the springs for the exhaust too.

I don't know if this will help but here are some 2mm cap head screws.  I use this site quite a lot and the prices are reasonable

Hi all well (despite the gorgeous paint job on the kit parts) I've primed it ready for the new colour (I intend to leave this for at least a week to cure before adding the first coat of the two pack paint I have)


Done some more to the engine





Thanks mate I've had a look, useful site.

Hi all here is the next instalment.
I got fed up with taking longer to find a part on the many sprues in this kit by looking for the small tab on each sprue with the letter I needed (I'm surprised I didn't think of this the 2 times I built the Traction Avant kit) I've written a large letter on each bag for which sprue is in it.


I've made the starter motor terminal from a piece of whittled down sprue


Added the oil cooler with the added layers and the banjo connector using Paul Coos detail adding info


And the finished starter motor.


Bit more weathering on the engine.


All in all I'm quite pleased with the progress (even if it's glacially slooooow)

That is seriously impressive, deep respect. As for colour, your model your choice, I just love red Ducatis

HI ALL I  made this connector with some sprue, Paul Coos CD really is a mine of information (loads of reference pics of the actual parts, that's where I got the seams on the exhaust from)

This part is like a little kit in its own right

Hi all i wanted to try and show you all just how big this is so, this is a 1/24 lorry engine.


Now put it on the engine and you get an idea of just how huge this is.


I just couldn't wait here is base colour (No clear lacquer yet)

Well we've been away for the weekend at our friends caravan and I came back to a bit of a disaster

All the plastic parts are fine I couldn't work out what had gone wrong but now I have

No primer, I assume the plastic parts were primed hence they are ok.
I've removed the paint

(Another chance to see how big this is its nearly as long as my thigh)
Now I just have to 're prime it, I'm just wondering if I have enough of the blue left this thing is so big it took nearly a whole can to paint it(admittedly I did both sides of all the parts as I was not sure if the back of any parts could be seen) hopefully no more problems will occur.

Hi all well I've finished the tank and sprayed the clear coat on the rest of the paintwork.








Such a gorgeous colour (even if I do say so myself)
