We recently learned of CMA Models, Inc. when they placed an ad in several recent issues of the SL Market Letter. While those advertisements were for models of Mercedes-Benz automobiles, CMA offers a variety of services, from custom building, to consulting to appraisals to brokerage/sales of models representing all different automotive manufacturers.
They make it pretty clear on their website what they’re all about, pointing out that “we provide a market for the finest model cars in the world, and the prices reflect that these are genuine works of collector art, not common toys and not mass market diecast items.”
A few minutes of viewing the pieces they work with and build left our jaws on the ground. One specific model, a Mercedes-Benz W196 Grand Prix car was of special interest, here is how they describe it:
MERCEDES-BENZ W196 GP – 1:12 scale by Michele Conti
Completely scratch built one-of-a-kind model by one of the best of the old guard of model makers. Hand hammered aluminum body. This exceedingly rare model was built mid-late 1950’s. See more photos and info regarding this model For Sale on the CMA website.
We’ve included some photos of other featured models from CMA Models (below), creators of historically accurate models of uncompromising quality for collectors around the globe, since 1982. Hand-crafted limited editions, custom builds, fine kits and rare one-of-a-kinds.
