|1:24 scale Racing Motorcycles
For the 2014 Daytona 24 hour build, I decided to tackle the project to finish 4 1:24 scale MotoGP racing motorcycles. Some body
clean up work had been done prior to the build weekend. I ended up with a terrible head cold and only built for about 7 hours
before I gave up and went to bed. If I get one more racing model in this scale, I will have enough to enter into a collection category
at one of the model shows.
In August, 2014, I finished an additional fifth model to complete the collection.
Base Kit(s): Airfix racing motorcycles (kit number 96499 - 3 models, plus paint)
Hasegawa Honda NSR500 1997 (kit number GP3:1500)
Heller Ducati Desmosedici (kit number 80926)
Finished: Feb 2014 and Aug 2014
- built out of the box
- ScaleMotorsports carbon fibre decals used on all exhaust mufflers and rear fenders
- Alclad metallics on frames and forks.
- bodywork paint was some from the Airfix kit as well as Tamiya acrylics
- Krylon clear acrylic was used and reacted with some of the paint (especially the red on the Yamaha)
