Dreams Matter
Before reading on, we recommend that you turn up the volume on your speakers and watch this exciting video without a blink :)

There are wonderful people who take really seriously what they do, because they know that behind every scale model there is always an actual vehicle and that if all this exists it's thanks to their dedication, to their many sleepless hours and to the limitless passion they put on each of the pieces and parts until they make that dream of perfection come true. This, taken to the extreme, means that being part of their dreams actually takes our sleep away... This is how the Ducati guys tell us in the video and this is how Decalcas felt when they decided to launch today their newest dream: the chain for the Ducati Superleggera V4 in 1/12 scale by Tamiya.

They have designed in great detail the different elements that make up the whole chain/gear assembly and all their accessory elements, and they deliver everything separately thus making the paint work a piece of cake. Let us insist, everything comes with the extreme detail with which Decalcas is capable of designing and manufacturing, which, as you all know, is light years away from the standards of other manufacturers. For instance, you can see the gap between the side plate and rivets in each and every chain link, and all the holes, pins and marks are detailed in both front and rear sprockets; even the fixing nut to the shaft has the clip that prevents its loss when it reaches the high turning speeds of this Ducati designed beast. And all this with a really simple assembly since it is designed with the scale modeler in mind :D

At SpotModel we work with passion because we know that dreams can come true. :)

Set of parts for replacing the chain assembly of the Tamiya Ducati Superleggera V4 in 1/12 scale.

All parts are manufactured with the extreme detail with which Decalcas designs and produces their impressive references, which allows giving greater realism to the model. For isntance, you can see the gap between the side plates and the rivets in the side links, and all the holes, pinions and marks are detailed in both sprockets; even the fixing nut to the axle has the clip that prevents its loss when reaching the high turning speeds of this beast designed by Ducati, all of that with a really simple assembly since it is designed with the scale modeller in mind.
