New from EMC!
They are back up and running on a very limited basis. Here's their latest offering, the 1939 Bugatti Atlantic Type 59SC owned by Tom Perkins. The price is $520.00. Production is limited to 60 pieces.
Yowsa! For those who absolutely, positively, have to have one in their collection. Hard to believe I'm saying this (about a 1/43 replica ) but those wipers may be too thin... Of course, there are no "deal-breaker-details" on this piece. I'm quite certain that at 60 pieces, these will come & go in a blink of an eye. 😏
Beautiful but do I need a fifth one at this price, all-be-it, a masterpiece.
Fantastic looking model.

EMC has also introduced the first Porsche. One of these may be on my list.
We're hoping to have both models in Chicago.
nice models, but hey guys, haven't you forgotten the email last year where EMC asked us to buy their models so that they could buy weapons for this war ?
well, I have received two of those emails...
I am through with EMC, no matter how super-nice their models are.
and in case you didn't know, I have 15 of these models in my collection....
Pardon my ignorance but exactly who are EMC models?
@jack-dodds All I know is that they are based in Ukraine.
The mere fact that anyone in that city, that country, is concerned with the production of model cars despite the looming presence of destruction and death is astonishing to me:
Established in 1986 by Vladimir Pivtorak, EMC has been producing very detailed, true to scale models in 1:43 scale ever since. Currently the workshop is located in Kiev (Ukraine) has 5 employees to produce hand made models in limited series. E.M.C. stands for Eastern Models Collection, also known as Pivtorak (Пивторак) or Vertex.
@david-green Let's see, there's Western, Rio, Heco, Minichamps, AUTOart, maybe more - which do you have? EMC's are great, as is the real car, but I don't know why EMC chose to make a model in a market that's already saturated.
@chris, I've had some limited contact with them. Some of what they're doing was in the works before the beginning of hostilities. Everything was moved to a safe location as the invasion began. They seem to have found an area where they can continue their work safely. The war is tragic for everyone over there. Many have left the country. Even so, for those who remain, life goes on, even in the middle of war. Groceries still have to be bought, cars still need gas, etc. These folks are doing what they know how to do in order to survive.
I have two versions by Western,a first and then an updated version, the Minichamps like you, and the Rio. I don't have the Heco and if I still have the AutoArt, it is in a storage box.
Western, earliest version.
Western, newer version and comparison of the two Westerns.
The EMC is undoubtedly better and I wish them all the best both in their sales and in their continued struggle.
Great Atlantics, everyone! Must have been popular enough that Western upgraded theirs! I have the Rio, Solido, & Brumm packed away somewhere...
