  • CMC Bugatti Typ 35 Grand Prix Nation Color Project

    Modified
    2018-07-08

    Scale 1:18 / Item.No.: M-100- B001 – B-016

     

    The black and white pictures in the contemporary archives, however, fail to do justice to all the colourful race cars of the 1920s and 1930s. Since rules dictated back then that each participating team must have its car(s) donned in a finish of nation-specific colour(s), the starting field typically presented a fantastic, colourful scene.

     

    CMC presents these colorful race cars in a model series that is UNIQUE in this form. Please place your order immediately, all models are limited!

     

    It was the motor-sports-craving France that inaugurated the first “Grand Prix” race in 1906. Following the end of WWI, other countries began to host the so-called “Great Prices” races, as well. With the popularity of “Grand Prix” growing in the world, it soon became synonymous with international motor racing.

     

    Bugatti dominated the motor racing era from the mid twenties up to the early thirties with the Type 35. In this era women dared to sit behind the same racing car wheel as the famed male driver heroes were turning. They cleverly understood how to obtain acceptance in the racing world and they got kudos from their collegues for their lion hearts.

     

    While developing the Bugatti Nation Color Project we took a deeper look behind the black and white curtains of the historic motor sports era. The racing world of the mid twenties to the thirties was thoroughly dominated by famous race drivers like Bubi and Karle. The race teams often also had gentleman drivers also financing the whole racing activities.

     

    Girlpower at the steering wheel. this was far away from being the generally accepted routine. It was wholly sensational.

     

    Two woman race drivers had been especially in the spot light back then – the young French born former Moulin Rouge dancer „Helle´- Nice“ and the Czech born, outstandingly talented banker´s wife Elisabeth Junek. Both drivers highly appreciated the den Bugatti type 35 and were able to handle this car brilliantly and sucessfully.

     

    We hope having raised your expectations regarding the outstanding vita and racing career of the mentioned female racing drivers. You may research the full stories using the quotation notes at the end of our Bugatti Type 35 article.

     

    Each CMC Colour Nation Bugatti model is individual characterized by the respective "country color" Numberplate and fictional race number. Likewise, different leather colors as well the movable driver's windshield with leather apron or protective grid.

  • The Archetype of a Whole Era CMC Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix, 192

    Modified
    2018-07-08

    Scale 1:18 / Item.No.: M-063

     

    Ettore Bugatti, born in Milan September 15th, 1881. Already in his young years, he founded his own factory in Molsheim / Alsace. Within few years everybody in the still young world of the automobile was talking about the "Genius of Molsheim".

     

    For Ettore Bugatti, building cars was simply a matter of seeking perfection or, in other words, a kind of art which had to be presented in an aesthetic way.

     

    Ettore Bugatti belongs without a doubt to the most ingenious designing engineers in automobile history. Already one of the first creations of the so-called „Le Patron“, the Bugatti Type 35“, became a technical masterpiece.

     

    It became a classic and the source of inspiration for many further racing- and sports cars.

     

    In 1924 the Type 35 started an era. Bugatti dominated the motorsport scene for seven years. Something that didn´t happened before and probably will never again.

     

    CMC wants to contribute its part to that success story of immense technical and aesthetic fascination. We like to present our replication of the Type 35 Grand Prix as a highly detailed 1:18 scale model.

     

    926 single parts, a lot of experience and love to detail were necessary to create the Grand Prix racing version (without a spare wheel) of that Bugatti - the famous brand with its prominent horseshoe formed radiator grille.

     

     


  • Breaking News About CMC Lancia D50

    Modified
    2017-11-10

    Dear Sir/Madam,

     

    CMC is announcing the arrival of its newly-developed CMC Lancia D50 replicas in a few weeks, just in time for the celebrations of Christmas.

     

    Don’t miss out on the chance of acquiring a unique, first-class CMC model. Although market demand for this replica is expected to be high, we are committed to processing your order in a timely fashion and expediting its delivery to you to the best of our ability.

     

    The Lancia D50 has gone down in the history of Grand Prix because of its unique, cutting-edge construction. The famous outlay of two pannier fuel cells, each aligned with the front and rear wheels, speaks volumes about the avant-garde spirit of its chief engineer Vittorio Jano.  Such arrangement remained one of a kind during the time of the D50. But while this ground-breaking feature was never replicated on any other Formula One car, it was adopted years later by one sports car after another in racing. This is why we believe a CMC-made Lancia D50 model belongs in every serious collection of model cars.

     

    In the near future, the CMC Lancia D50 will be joined by another world-famous Formula One racing car, which has a close affinity with the Lancia technically, and it will be released by CMC in 2018.

     

    With these two models - the CMC Lancia D50 and its consanguine "cousin" – joining in your collection, your possession of an important piece of racing history and memory, will be complete, especially in connection with the Formula One tradition and the ground-breaking innovations it represents. Given their potential to be conceived as a set, these two unique and world-class models will take on added value as collector’s items.

     

    With best regards,

     

    CMC Team

    The CMC replica of the Lancia D50, 1954 & 1955 will be available on the market soon. This is one of the most sophisticated models presented by CMC; It is handcrafted from 1,598 parts, most of which are made of zinc alloy, stainless steel, copper, and other metal materials in addition to resin, genuine leather and rubber. We have invested an enormous amount of time in the efforts to develop and perfect this replica. Hopefully, it will live up to your expectations, as well. Here are some of the pictures taken of the Lancia D50 production line so that our customers will learn more about this model’s production process. As will be seen, we use a lot of screws and rivets rather than glue for joining constituent parts, which greatly improves the reliability of our products to remain intact over time and during transportation.

    CMC Ferrari 250 GTO "Hidden secrets" Explanation of production details that can't be seen

     

    Madams and Sirs
    Dear Customers

     

    Wht is it tat makes this model so unique? The first thing you might notice are the extraordinary, soft and perfect in form lines of the body. Perfect contours and harmoniously created curves are characterizing the image of the bodywork.


    Our GTO is an all metal model and the major component is zinc die-cast. But working with this material in the conventional way will cause problems if you want to reach a certain wall thickness or if you want to recreate complex lines. So we tried to figure out, how can we still be filigree and true to the original form and also stay true to our own ambitious quality benchmark.


    It has shown, that sophisticated bodyforms are nearly impossible to recreate with the conventional die-cast process if you don't want to make any compromises regarding the wall thickness or the original form. This was something we definitely had o prevent. That's the reason we decided to look for different ways.


    So now we spli the whole body in different sections. If we work on extremely critical body sections, we create separate castings or parts made of other metals that we integrate into the body. To connect those single parts, we tried different techniques. But gluing and also soldering turned out to be not the ideal solution. So finally we decided to realize an elaborate screwing technique. Only this way we were to guaranty a stable an lasting solution. This way it is possible to manufacture individual top- and bottom parts which can be connected by this screwing technique. Also front- and rear parts of the models can be produces this way in a very individual way.


    Subsequent pictures will display this technology in detail. After connecting and assembling the single parts, the slits and gaps become filled with a special putty, carefully slurred and polished. A test of the form stability is finishing the part of the production prcess. The result is an immaculate and perfect shaped surface condition and a wall thickness within the favored specifications.


    Ths is what we all "inner values". A screwing technology which became invisible within the prduction process. The outcome is a satisfying and pristine beauty in unmatched quality.


    We hope we were able to provide you with a little insight into the world of the CMC production techniques. We hope this makes you appreciate your CMC models even a little more.
