If I remember correctly, these were done by Tom Gibson (I think) who worked with Bob at Dominion Models. So, there are a lot of Minimarquee, Precision Miniatures, Motor City and Brooklins, even some Franklin Mint.

Yes, correct John, these were by Tom Gibson, who was a regular poster to Forum43 a while ago now. He actually sent me a couple of sets of cards and I used them for Christmas greetings with my Coventry Diecast Model Club mates. All were delighted to receive a model car related card to this level of quality.

These are very nice.  They were probably done long before I started collecting 1/43 scale model cars (approximately 2015).  Thanks for sharing.

These are great. Check out the tire tracks in the snow.
