    Oh, look, Amalgam are jumping on CMC´s bandwaggon.

    Stunning replica, the last high detail model maker left in the industry-CMC is no comparison to Amalgam.

        … at which there must not be any room for the slightest error. Anyone who deserves the name of Amalgam-model-COLLECTOR must be a billionaire who either owns each model custom-made for him to go with the real deal (which Amalgam do) or for some odd reason does not care for the real thing. The scale in itself is extremely forbidding unless you call a palace your dwelling place. Collecting Amalgam models is not for mere mortals. So I take these announcements like the news on other luxury oddities like champagne showers or jewels in headlights, not as something I´d aspire to add to my collection.

    Very nice model but resin seats rather than leather seats? Seriously on a $11k model in 1:8 scale? CMC is doing better in 1:18.

      I don’t know what monitor you are viewing the images from, but they are 100% fine quality leather. Some of the best we’ve seen in scale.

      • MLB says:

        The seats on the Amalgam Bugatti are NOT leather. Atalante is correct. Amalgam does not use leather on any of their seats – always cast resin and painted.

        iPad Pro 12.9” 264 pixels per inch. Looks like painted resin seats like many of their products I saw inperson. I could be wrong on this one but please let us know if this is the exception that confirm the rule.

          I’ve heard nothing back to date. Giving them the benefit of the doubt based on holiday season… But why have FB presence if you don’t respond to customer feedback? Anyway, I’m not doubting the cast resin, but damn it looks so good!

    • MLB says:

      The leather on CMC seats is out of scale, not well applied and somewhat toy like. Yes they do pack in a lot of parts, but they are also small mass produced items. And as far as accuracy goes, CMC always makes many big mistakes.

      • George K says:

        There are always quite a few things which are out of scale on CMCs, especially in the interiors (i.e. steering wheels.) But they are nice, handbuilt models for the most part.
        But, let’s not forget the stunning models from Ilario. While resin and non-opening, they are pretty darn near flawless in detail. And great customer service- I recently sent an inquiry to them, and received a very comprehensive and satisfying response from Ilario himself. Good businesd practice.

      • Karsten says:

        Actually, it is easier to make models at a larger scale than at a smaller scale. If you scale something down more rather than less it becomes either undescernibly small, unfeasibly flimsy and fragile … or, if divergent from the accurate scale, will seem crude, inaccurate … to which the only alternative is absence altogether. In addition, working with real metal, leather, wood, etc. is so much harder (but more durable) than moulding it in resin, but allows for the functionality that CMC models stand out for. As far as I know, you cannot remove hubcaps and replace wheels with spare wheels, unscrew fuel or oil lids, etc. on an Amalgam.
