Best models Italy, scale 1/32 Best models Italy. Manufacturer of 1/43 scale models. The idea to create a company of car models for collectors has been of Marco Grassini, a fan and collector of 1/43 scale car models since over 40 years (he owns about 7.000 pcs.)
This big passion brought him in 1984 to found BOX MODEL and than in 1990, together with his family, M4 (Marco, Mariella, Michele and Manuela).
M4 produces car models of years 40/50/60 with ART MODEL brand, and car model of years 60/70/80 with BEST MODEL brand.
Production of a new model begins with research of documents (we own over 1.000 books); than comes design and construction of moulds. Each model requires construction at least of 5 moulds till 10 moulds for models more detailed.
Each model of ours is compound from 60 to 110 details; coachwork in metal, wheels in aluminium and steel, tyres, glasses, internals in plastic.
M4 has been the first one to add photo-engraved details, which are an unpublished novelty in the die-cast sector.
Painting is made very carefully in a sterile pressurized cabin, with 3 or also 4 passges of paint.
