CMA Models

Alistair Brookman

Before Brookman became a model maker he had a career as an engineering draftsman for the long gone Hesketh Formula 1 racing team. It appears that he has since retired from all model making, sometime around the year 2001.

Having left his drafting career at Hesketh, he went full-time into automotive model-making. All of his models were built in series editions of at least 10 of each car. There were never any one-offs. Exact figures can only be guessed, but our best guess would be a minimum of 10 to 15 of each edition. He has produced five or six limited edition series that we know of, as well as a few one-off’s.

In the early 1980s, Brookman was exclusively represented by us, CMA. We were responsible for having him make the important change in the scale he originally chose to work in. We had him change from 1:15 up to 1:12 scale. We were also responsible for his making the series of the Ferrari 156 Dino F-1 models. Unfortunately, he became utterly impossible to work with, so we chose to discontinue our relationship and leave him. In spite of his very bad behavior, he still built some terrific models.
