    Hi,

    Yes, this is going to be something very very different then the figures/busts we make ;)

    This is a miniature bike scale 1/12 from the rider Wout van Aert in the "Tour De France 2022" where he get
    the green jersey. There will be also follow a bust from him ,but they are working on it for the moment,that one is gonna be 200mm.

    But first the bike,here you can see a few pictures from the bike im working on ,it got 40 pieces and are very small,so my son is helping me where I can't see it :)

    These are pics from the miniature bike,I will show then also the rider and his original bike, the kit is very nice,but very fragile,decals are included also and a manual to assemble it

    I think they don't have miniature mountain bikes ,but I see that they also make bikes on request,
    so they can make your bike that you have and ride on,if I have read everything good,not 100% sure

    If you don't find the site ask me and I give the link,they have also facebook,but they don't answer there,always via
    email the man his name is Sam Li

    Good luck,and I f you like to know something you can ask me and I will help you OK ??
