Customizing a motorcycle, scale 1/24

Modificación modelo comercial ducatti 250 deluxe artesanal

A few weeks ago we were commissioned to make a motorcycle Ducati 250 Deluxe 1971, since is not in the market. Specifically this:

Building it from scratch meant an amount of time and effort that made it an unviable work for a gift and the time with which we had, so we offered the possibility of modifying a commercial scale model “ducati 350 mk3 desmo 1974” that did not had much to do in terms of aesthetics, but overall structure itself served us as a good working basis.

The model is 1/24 scale, which means that the total length is about 9cm.

The first thing we did was to disassemble all that had to change and make a copy of the principal piece (tank and seat base).

The tank had no resemblance, either the seat , so we did in these and other parts a base with modeling clay, oven hardened, to retouch then more carefully.

g

For painting, we draw a mask to apply the two tones more accurately than doing it freehand.

Chassis only had to change the color and the position of the dampers.

This was the result:

Finally, we used the urn in which came the model and deleted the labeling to add a new one.
