CMD on the move

CMD on the move. After 21 years in Europe, the car is packed, the container will start its journey soon. CMD will be relocating to South Africa.

Once all things are up and running again (from March or so), this will be a positive move for CMD and the availability of models.

With two new plastic injection models in the tooling process. Can only mean a good start for CMD next year in the 2nd quarter. Lots of new exciting and detailed plastic models coming your way, something to look forward to.
