M-B Patentwagon 1886

OK the ebay seller listed this as a 1:8 Franklin Mint.
I know FM did produce this model back in the day.

But look at the tag, Made by CMC?
Anybody have any knowledge of CMC ever producing
this one? Maybe an exclusive for Franklin Mint?

I have been dealing with CMC since day 1 and have
never seen or heard of them doing this model.
Love to hear from anyone that has more info.

Thanks to long time customer Jim S. for bringing this to my
attention. And Jim is the proud owner of this sweet find too.
I can smell the weekend........

Some great old photos

I just stumbled onto this site and found some incredible
shots from the early days of Indy. We are constantly on
the hunt for images and information like this. So if any of
you want to contribute to our ongoing research of this era
drop me a line or just send me links.
Think we're gonna make some of these cars? Yup......

Yet another gem to add to your CMC collection.

shipment we still have a few to spare. Katha has
some great images on the site. New price too.
Check it out here.

Vettel 3 in a row

I know the majority of you including myself were pulling for
Fernando/Ferrari, they did everything they could and Vettel
was fortunate to say the least. Very lucky that he didn't get
tagged when he was sitting in the middle of the track facing
the wrong way. Vettel becomes only the 3rd man to ever win
3 Championships in a row. Two incredible races to close out
the 2012 season. March can't come quick enough. Oh yeah,
Minichamps is already showing the 1:18 as sold out. Get those
pre-orders in now if you collect World Champs.

1:18 is here

1:43 is here

MF is here early

1:18 Marmon Wasp update

Here's a few photos we just received from the factory.
Not the best images but you can clearly see the progress
that we have made since the last sample. This sample will
arrive to us on Tuesday. If all looks good we give them the
green light to start production.

Yes we are guilty of many delays with this model.
Brian and I consider this to be "thee" most significant Indy
500 winner of all time. We want to produce the most
accurate and well detailed model we can while still
keeping the price affordable for the average collector.

As most of the you know, originally this was going to be a
sealed body design. Well as you can see we decided to
change that plan and the model has a fully wired and
plumbed engine. This was one of the delays that we feel was
well worth the effort. It looks great and we hope you guys
feel the same way.

We are still accepting pre-orders. Realistically this is
now a 1st qtr 2013 arrival. By the time we deliver it
we may be sold out. We have pre-sold approx. 75%
of the production run. Don't get caught snoozing on this
Have a good weekend!

TGIF and new releases.

Rossi 2010 Laguna Seca special edition.
Very cool paint job, we have some great pix
on the site.

1:18 Di Matteo Brothers Fuel Altered by Acme.
If drags are in your theme, then this one is a no-brainer.
A lot of model for the modest price tag.

As most of you know, I'm not a fan of the new "sealed body"
releases by BBR. And only because I think they should have
lowered the price a bit. Regardless, they are still some of the best
when it comes to accuracy and attention to the small details.
And they beat the competition to the punch being the first
mfg to release the awe inspiring Pagani Huayra in 1:18 scale.
Red coming soon.

Another big week for you 1:43 guys, over 25 new releases.
IXO, Minichamps, and Mattel. Check out all the new 1:43 here.
Street/Racing, Old/New, it's all there this week.

OK a good weekend to all.
Although winter arrived this past week with some low temps,
50's and 60's this weekend and maybe even 70 on Monday.
Near by Killington and Okemo ski areas are open. Good time for
a trip to VT. C'mon up and do your Christmas model shopping too.
