1:10 Carousels – Custom Made and Offered by American Miniature Carousel/South American Models


DSCN6693

I am very impressed with this Company’s artist crew from South American Models….. American Miniature Carousel. Today we show their first release of this beautifully detailed miniature Carousel. The colors painted, and the smallest of details added were painstakingly hand crafted by this talented crew of artists from Buenos Aires. Absolutely beautiful work! The best part is that these beautiful, hand crafted pieces are for sale direct!

This carousel build took about 15 months to be completed with the entire South American Models team needed for the making this fantastic piece. The result is the most complex kinetic machine ever achieved by our brand. Our company already is widely diversified as we make train layouts, big scale trains, planes and buses. People often get lost at the South American Models site, usually thinking that they are viewing a private collection, rather than our actual products line. We felt that was unfair for the carousel to be surrounded by many other less noted works, so the Carousel stands alone in a separated site for now. New Carrousels with different paint schemes are planed to be added and be released next year.
