Looks great, Peter! The rear hanger looks wrong in real life, too! I was looking at Repsol 1000RRs at one time but bought a Daytona 675 instead, would like to find a kit of that!

Saw this on the street yesterday in NYC and would love to build a model of it. Anyone know a similarly styled model? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ducati_PaulSmart_1000_LE

And it's a wrap! I'm waiting to post pictures until an issue is resolved. For some reason the product was missing two critical metal stickers for use in the rear view mirrors. I've reached out to Tamiya USA to see if I can get a replacement. If so, I'll attach them to the model and take photos. If not, I'll probably forgo attaching them. More info to come.

Overall the model was an unbridled delight to build. Everything fit together perfectly and attaching mini hoses and lines and screwing together parts really felt like I was assembling a machine that could turn on and drive away. It took me a very long time to assemble. I'd guess somewhere between 40—50 hours. Sanding was minimal as was gluing. It was all about painting. Everything needed custom paint in multiple coats and then multiple coats of varnish or gloss (Pledge). This took hours and hours but the payoff was so pleasurable when pieces just fit together without effort.

I highly recommend this piece and—as the first Tamiya model I've constructed—came away very impressed with their modern tooling.
