Dragons

Dragons
The dragon is a mythological being that is present in cultures all around the world. In some of them they are huge beasts that spit fire while emitting sounds that make the body hair stand on end. Can you imagine it?

We are not dedicated to reproducing fictional dragons but real world vehicles, although some of them have certain similarities... Or perhaps the Ducati Superleggera V4 with the titanium racing exhausts developed by Akrapovic do not roar and throw flames like the best of dragons? XD

Here we already have, by the hand of Decalcas, the Tamiya Ducati Superleggera V4 detail-up set that includes honeycomb grilles for the exhaust, different types of screws for replacing the metal ones supplied by Tamiya, the dry clutch with open lid for competition, the brake lever guard and more details that will leave you speechless. Along with this great product, the people at Decalcas have also sent us a preview of the next filigree they are working on: the whole racing titanium exhaust system by Akrapovic, which you can now reserve at SpotModel.

What will the product include besides carbon decals? Well, 3d printed parts with the highest quality and detail available nowadays, among which we will get the lower casing that covers the exhausts, the necessary parts to eliminate the rear view mirrors and the license plate, all the springs, the lambda probe, the plates, a base to display the set, and the exhausts themselves. Do you want to blow your mind away? It even has details of the welds between the sections... We have never seen such precision and excellence in a 3D product. Awesome.

Fictional monsters give way in SpotModel to a true 21st century dragon. That's right, in 1/12 scale. ;)
