Extraordinary Scale Model Motorcycles

I ran across the Italian site Scale Racing Models and was astonished by the detail of the 1/12 scale model racing bikes shown.  Long ago I used to own a hobby shop and know something about model building or thought I did.  I wouldn't even begin to know how to build a model of this caliber.  There are model builders out there who go beyond hobby and their creations rise to the level of art.  The SRM site is short on info and long on pictures and in Italian but I can say the builders' work shown there has my total admiration.

I can only imagine the patience it would take to build these models.

Skills, someone has some mad skills. I'd agree with you - rising to the level of artwork.

The scale models look just like the real thing.
