Marshall Buck established his company, CMA Models, in 1982 to start building the finest highly detailed custom built-to-order models in various scales with the simple philosophy – “Do it right or don't do it at all, and quality is paramount.” He has always built, produced, and represented the finest quality limited edition hand built models and custom pieces. For each individual model or edition he places an extremely strong emphasis on historical accuracy.
Marshall’s first large scale model was of the 1949 Le Mans winning Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta which received rave reviews and was hailed by Prancing Horse Magazine as "the next best thing to owning the full sized car." This particular edition was the first 1:14th scale limited edition model produced by anyone to feature full chassis detail. There was so much detail there, that they also produced an edition of separate Rolling Chassis models.
This edition of models was personally autographed by Luigi Chinetti, Sr., and was also approved by Touring Superleggera who designed and built the original Barchetta bodies.
Over the years, Marshall Buck has been selected to produce special display and award models and limited editions for Aston Martin, Chrysler Corporation, Monterey Historic Automobile Races, Ferrari North America, Honda Performance Development, Toyota Motor Sales, and others.
Currently he is a regulator contributor to Sports Car Market, American Car Collector, Cavallino, Mesh New England, and Prancing Horse. Occasionally he also contributes to Motorsports Marketing Resources site, and VeloceToday.
