My year’s modelling work

December 17, 2022 · in Automotive · · 39 · 0.9K

I managed to keep one of my new year's resolution - no military models - and kicked off 2022 with 's 1/12 Yamaha XV 1600.

This was followed by the then new Suzuki Ecstar GSX-RR ‘20, as ridden by 2021 world champion Joan Muir:

A 24th scale car followed, namely the Mercedes AMG GT3.

More motorbikes now, all in 1/12 scale, first the Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon.

The Honda Fireblade CBR 1000 RR-R.

The Suzuki RGV (XR89)

Then another car, the BMW M6 GT3.

A couple of 1/12 bikes. The Ducati Panigale Superbike racer.

And two Yamaha YZF-R1s.

The 1/20 scale Ferrari SF 70 F1 car.

And finally the Trickstar Kawasaki Ninja H2R, a conversion of the Tamiya 1/12 kit.

Not too bad a year despite the lockdowns here in China.

Merry Christmas everybody and happy modelling in 2023.

  2. Congratulations on a productive year, with all models oozing quality, my friend @chinesegeorge!
    Hard to believe they are not 1:1.
    Keep them coming!

  3. Absolutely amazing work on all those bikes and cars, George @chinesegeorge
    Every single one of them looks very realistic.

  4. Very impressive models, George!

  5. Incredible work George! 🍻 @chinesegeorge, And not a military model in sight! Well done sir.👍

  6. Are you sure you don't run a motorcycle shop in China? Great portfolio, George @chinesegeorge

    • Thanks, Eric @eb801, the red sign above the two Yamahas does say George’s Motorcycles, it was originally going to be a kind of replica pop-up shop, but the space has since been taken up by my wife for storing vegetables, I’m on the look out for new premises.

  7. Well done, George!

  8. They make their own kind of noise. Nice work. I agree with Eric.

  9. Congrats on keeping your resolution and congrats on such an impressive output...WELL DONE!

  10. Very nice collection of models, George (@chinesegeorge). You will need to work really hard to top these in the new year. I am looking forward to your next group of models. Merry Christmas and a prolific new year.

  11. Nice workmanship on these models!
    Interesting subjects !

  12. Wow you been a busy boy! All beauties and super slick builds. Stay away from the bugs and keep em coming.

  13. Thanks, Bill @billkoppos, glad you got your pictures uploaded in the end. It’s a matter of keeping safe and warm here, it’s minus 20C outside this morning.

  14. Beautiful work, they all look great!

  15. Many thanks, Bob @v1pro, much appreciated.

  16. Thanks, Charles @tiking, I think you’ve had a good year as well.

  17. Great stuff! I am definitely interested in building a few super bikes in 2023. I've got about a dozen kits waiting on my shelf before I'm allowed to buy anything new. I'm hoping the list grows at least a little after Christmas.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  18. Cheers, Brian@brithebuilder, you never know what Santa might bring you.

  19. Some great-looking sets of wheels there!

  20. Thanks, Greg @gkittinger, I always love seeing your 1/72 flying models, not so many wheels on view though!

  21. Love those 1/12 bikes, @chinesegeorge, makes me think about building some. I have a Ninja and a couple of hard-tail Harleys that I build quite a few years ago.

  22. Thank you, Robert @robgenev665, not too bad a year all things considered, although the lockdowns didn’t help. Here’s to 2023.

  23. Wow George Williams (@chinesegeorge), what a year, amazing work. So inspiring to me, your builds are so so good. Love it, cant wait to see what you doing in 2023.

  24. Thank you, Anthony, @anthonyricco, I really appreciate your generous comments, but I think makes them look better than they really are, your Norton blew me away by the way.
