Fine Art Models

MV Agusta 750s model
This is not a real MV Agusta 750S: it’s an all-metal, 1:5 scale model. The brakes, suspension, and carburetor linkage are working recreations of the real thing. It’s from a small outfit called Fine Art Models—based in Royal Oak, Michigan—which sells its pieces to collectors all over the world, and to museums such as the Smithsonian. FAM makes big claims for its 750S: “With over 300 man-hours to hand build each model, it is currently considered the finest motorcycle model ever produced.” Just three hundred of these models will be made, at a cost of $3,500 each.

If this whets your appetite, check out the equally amazing 1:5 creations of Spanish artist Pere Tarragó.
