    My dealer has ordered a model in production, which he indicated would be shipped directly to me-will the selling dealer be notified of shipment or will I receive a shipping notice?

    Wow! Beautiful models. I cherish the ones I have as well. I am continually impressed with the attention to detail they bring. While I enjoy them year round, I most appreciate them when I am unwilling to drive my cars usually due to weather in the winter months. To anyone wondering if they are worth it, they are.

    Here in the UK, we sell most of our models directly although you can find a few on display in some dealerships and high end department stores. We attend many events each year (e.d. Goodood FoS) which offers the best opportunity to get up close to multiple models. The event season is drawing to a close this year so keep an eye on our website for details of the events we will be attending in 2017.
    If there is a particular model you are interested in purchasing, please PM the details and if we have one in stock here in Bristol we can arrange an appointment for you to visit us to view it.

    Do you have a video about the creation of your models, something complete, with details?
    In YouTube it will be nice. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Christian, our models are only sold fully assembled and finished, not in kit form - is that what you meant by asking if they were sealed?

    What is your name? It results mire helpful to discuss.

    Yes, in part you have reply to my question. In reality, I mean, if all models are coming with
    open or closed elements, doors,...I think, commercialy talking, a box with semi assembled models will be nice too with a real reasonable price...

    Christian, it is various, some have all doors in function and some have no one!

    The latest modells often have more function, earlier modells are much more simple.

    My 430 Scuderia was much more simple than the fantastic LaFerrari! :)

    Replicarz or Mint Models are authorized dealers in the USA ; there are probably some others as well.

    Replicarz used to show several, but all were always listed as "out of stock," since they would only order if they got a sale. Now there is just one Lotus model shown on their site and it is also not a stock item. It is listed as ships direct form the manufacturer. So same policy of taking an order if they get a sale.

    Mint Models..... I would NEVER buy anything from them. Just took a look at their site for the heck of it, and could not find any Amalgam's there and there is NO mention of them anywhere.....they do not list Amalgam as a brand they offer or represent.

    Mint Models and Legacy Motors are the same dealer, My mistake thinking both websites would list Amalgam- here is the Legacy link- [I never purchase from them either but use their site occasionally to see what is new];
    Legacy Motors - Showroom by Brand - Amalgam

    I don't know of any US dealers that actually stock Amalgam.

    Thanks, and I have also never known of any US dealers to stock these models. As far as Legacy goes.... I have no use for them either - I know they are now owned by Mint Models. Same issues exist with both of those "dealers." Will NEVER buy from or recommend either.

    For 1/8 expensive models for Frontiart, GMP and Amalgam , check out seller " bbluver " in ebay. They provide free courier (EMS/UPS) airmail as well. Most importantly, all in stocks for immediate delivery and good price .

    Thank you Caeruleus11. I am aware of the the U.S. agent. It appears that aside from Tom, there are no other real USA based dealers. I found it both a little surprising and disappointing that the new fellow posting from Amalgam collection never replied to my inquiry here.

    Hi Christan, my name is Neil but it may not always be myself that responds on this account! As the other forum members have mentioned, most of our more recent road car models have opening elements, some have working steering.
    We have no plans to sell our models in anything other than fully finished and assembled I'm afraid.

    Tom is an absolute pro and a true gentleman. He is a frequent presence at major events and races, and his passion is boundless. His segment on Jay Leno's garage was great (worth seeing, it really goes into depth about the models). In reality, he's the exact type of guy you'd spend $$$ on for a model and feel like you got a bargain.

    Thank you Entropy for the kind words! Sorry I am not a regular on social media forums but will start to pay closer attention to Ferrari Chat!

    We are honored to be the NA agent for Amalgam for over two years now. As mentioned in earlier posts, Replicarz and Mint Models offer the Amalgam products in the USA as does Light & Shadow Fine Art in Carmel, CA.

    For our neighbors to the north, Collectors Studio in Toronto also handles the Amalgam Collection line.

    Since 100% of my time is dedicated to Amalgam, please feel welcome to email or contact my office for model inquiries as well. We manage stock as well as tailor made orders from the start to finish making the process easy for our clients.

    I will try to check in on a regular basis but please be patient if I do not reply to a post as quickly as others. My colleagues in the UK are doing a great job on a more regular basis.

    Regards,
    Tom Long

    Great question!
    In the modern category, the Pagani Huayra easily comes out on top as far as quantity of parts is concerned. Easy to see why when you look at the interior!
    Pagani Huayra (2011) Scale Model Cars

    When it comes to the classic models, there are a few contenders for 'Top Trump' in the parts category;

    Bugatti Type 59
    Bugatti Type 59 (1935) Belgian GP Scale Model Cars

    Mercedes SSKL
    Mercedes-Benz SSKL (1931) 1st Mille Miglia Scale Model Cars

    Blower Bentley
    Bentley Blower (1929) 2nd Le Mans Scale Model Cars

    The common theme here is the wire wheels - based on which I think the Type 59 probably takes the prize!
