had a bit of a slump recently, and i think its mainly down to the subjects ive been doing and the failures ive had, i need to do something thats going to go together with no drama.....therefore a Tamiya bike kit lol

i started this many years ago and it ended up on the shelf of doom after i cocked up the paint job twice! Since now the decals are a little suspect so im not going to bother with the MHR scheme and do a plain all over Ducati Red

Sounds great. I built the cafe racer in black which is basically this kit stripped back.

You could try some Halfords or any acrylic clear over the decals Paul.

You would have to cut each decal out apparently, I never tried it, just a couple of mist coats is supposed to work.

I always thought it would make the decal crack over any compound curve, lots of Microsol?

I must give it a try.

x2. I've used Testors Dulcote on aged decals to stabilise them. Since I usually trim the carrier film I did the whole sheet with Dulcote.

But, as they say with carpet cleaners, "test on inconspicuous area first"!

Looking good Paul. Always like these bikes and kits, never a fan of the green.
