Hey people,

I need some information on this model made by CMC and some pictures if possible. How do you rate it?

Don't worry, I am not going to venture outside of Porsche... its for my older brother, after seeing LUW's latest CMC purchase......

:feedback :feedback

Thanks people

Its an older model and it won't be up to the standards of the latest CMC's
I don't have one yet but I have seen them and they are probably like a average Kyosho in detail or a bit above.
The build quality on CMC is usually very high :cheers

:iagree
It's NO WAY near the W196R, SLR, Targa Florio or the future release 250 F. It's a nice model, maybe with Kyosho/AUTOart level, but far from outstanding. In fact, it has so little "oomph" that I would easily settle for Ricko's version (if I could find one, or both of them, for that matter).

PS: Your brother is a person of fine taste, if I may say. The world doesn't end at Stuttgart, ya' know. :wink

Yes we know it is an old model. It has been on his want list for so long. So, he just decided to get it. I dont think it is going to be made by any top end company in the near future.

He has good taste.... I will submit the pics of his collection one day... he is too lazy to take the pics of his cars though... guess who needs to do that work?.....

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't CMC about to re-release this model sometime this year?

Re-release?!?! Poor old brother :lol

I better not tell him though as he just ordered the older model..... :badidea

I think he will still be very happy with the old release. Still a nice looking car with some good detail ain't it?

hi I have a bit of info on this car, yes its an older model but it has been reworked quite alot to improve quality against other makes such as exoto etc this is normal in the diecast world always improving.

CMC are excellent models very well made well worth the money and you will not be disapointed with it.

They have them in stock and ready for delivery.

Lots of people have these CMC models as a centre piece for the office or surgery.

Look foward to the Lancia Birdcage plus the 250F in the summer time and the Ferrari 250 SWB in 2006. I saw the prototypes in Germany and not only are they nice people to deal with but the models are well above expectations within the trade. Which means we are happy to have them on board.

For the Admin staff I hope you are happy with this reply good info from a good source. it is not a sales pitch.

Actually if you have to ask, then you already know the answer. From my last pm to you, then you know whether or not myself and the Admin Staff are happy with your tactics, alledged accusations against members behind their backs as well as your condescending pm's.

Don't play word games with me, play them with someone else.

Burn, apologies for straying your topic.

Apologies for the misconception of the reply The person who I am talking to is the person who has replied to your original thread I would just like to know how he evaluates models and in what capacity either qualifications or is it just personal judgement.

We are quite concerned that some models are put down which in turn discourages potential buyers away from a certain brand.

I do hope this is not this your case.

Thanks

We are all collectors here, some have great collections and are very helpful in giving indications. LUW is no exception. He has two CMCs if I am correct and I very much appreciate his comment. I don't think that this is done to put down the model.

I think it is a fact that the Panamericana is an older model, and that most diecast companies are always evolving to the best. So it is obvious that a newer model is better than a old model. I don't think that anyone has ever misjudged any diecast company, even if it has been done, other members would have pointed out their different opinion.

CMC are obviously a great diecast company, no problem with that, but it obvious that members who have both an old model and a new model from CMC can see the difference between the two and give out their opinion. Afterall this is what a forum is all about, people helping out each other. If someone buys a diecast which is not up to standard., it is his right and duty, in my opinion, to point out such a fact.

I dont know or care if you are a seller of some sort. I just opened this topic so that I will know what to expect from THIS MODEL and not the brand. And if you read correctly, people here gave their opinion about Panamericana and not CMC as a whole.

So please, if you have a comment on the diecast please post it. But if you have a problem of a 'sales' thing please use other methods which are given here at DX, either PM him or open another topic for your thought.

Thanks

Not sure what you are aiming at with this post.

I will be more direct and to the point than you chose to be.

Nobody here owes you a damn thing in the way of justifying their evaluation of a model or anything else.
Your concerns about someones post about any given car quite frankly, do not concern me.
What gives you the right to come in here and question anybodys credentials?
Because you have a store you think you can come in here and dictate the way things are run and now you question someones credentials?
If you took 2 seconds to look around you would see the person you are questioning is beyond reproach. Not only does he volunteer his time here and do a fantastic job as a moderator he has wonderful website set up that offers outstanding reviews for fellow collectors. All out of his own pocket and with his free time!
On top of that, he is a good man and a great friend to all uf us here.

What about you? what do you do for the hobby other than profit from it!
Look in the mirror next time you want to question someones motive Mr.com!!!

You are always welcome to take your concerns somewhere else.
Please don't let me slow your path.
