Amalgam is known worldwide for its large scale models of extreme and high end classic cars for collectors, but out of sight in our workshops thrives a busy world of one-off commissions and significant commercial contracts for the likes of Richard Mille and Foster & Partners. Some years ago in response to a request from Lord Norman Foster for the ultimate Spitfire model, we sent a team to Coningsby with some of the most accurate digital scanning equipment in the world to capture the data necessary to recreate the Mk 1a aircraft flown by Geoffrey Wellum of 92 Squadron in September 1940. Like all our work, this model is the result of a powerful combination of art and technology using original digital scanning, combined with high sculpting and finishing skills, to create a model indistinguishable from the real aircraft in photographs.

Following the attention the Spitfire drew from collectors, we have more recently created an edition of just five models of the Bell X-15. The fiery hell that the X-15 experienced each time it was flown up to nearly Mach 7, resulted in a beautiful and fascinatingly complex patina and it was this that the artists at Amalgam concentrated their efforts upon. The model is amazingly detailed and represents the staggering engineering of the rocket plane perfectly, but it’s the rendition of the scorched skin of the plane that takes this model into the stratosphere.

Next on our schedule is the SR-71 Blackbird.
