    The first time that I was made aware of Mr. Brookman, was in the pages of CAVALINO magazine, back in the 80s.

    ​His work was for sale through several galleries, L' Arte et L' Automobile in New York, and a gallery in Japan?, and he was represented by Marshall Buck, of CMA.

    Mentioned in THE Ferrari magazine, CAVALINO, and a full spread in Model Cars Magazine, of Japan. Spotty mention in American magazines. Including an excuse for an article building a diorama AROUND a Brookman model! (No body cares who made the frame the Mona Lisa is in!!)

    Beautiful work! Full of merit! -and almost forgotten, except by collectors.

    We must forgive translation errors, I only mention it to dismiss it. (my attempts at any language, including English! is probably received as an insult to that tongue!)

    A new member of our forum, Evgeniy Kabakov, has told me of several modellers that are new to me! The first is Tony Dennis, another modeler who works in the forever popular scale of 1/13th!!! -and the Atelier Fournier, of Caroline and Tristan Fournier!

    Tony Dennis is very much the "Engineer" type modeler, and Caroline and Tristan the "Artistic" type. All three, are new to me! and the models they are making are wonderful!

    I'll post website info, as soon as I can retrieve that slip of paper that just blew off my pizza box! Gotta go!

    http://www.maserati-alfieri.co.uk/alfieri21.htm.

    . . . -I am sorry that I posted Evgeniy Kabakov's name wrong the first time around,( you are the first Kabakov I've met!) -in any event, thank you for the connections to modelers that I had not known! -My opinion is that Mr. Dennis is definitely one to watch for in the future! And is exactly the kind of work that I fear will go from his work-bench and directly into some ones collection without "our" seeing.

    Jean Prieto is another.

    Thank you, Evgeniy!

    -Don

    After checking the above posted site, I am sure that we now do not have to worry about the further development of master modelers.

    My intention was at first to establish a base time-line of automobile modelers, and to try to include "one-offs" as I find them, . . . - there is so much involved in making a model, that I believe a "one-off" masterpiece, is no fluke! Sometimes after all the work, research, learning while doing, . . . we can understand the one and done! - and be grateful for the work, that was done!

    Just my opinion. -Don

    A model car that is 100 years old? And it was made by a prisoner of war? -the tires are made of cork, and of course everything was made from scraps that could be found by a prisoner of war, components had tabs which were then bent over, after fitting into slots. -just as tin toys were.

    The modeler was Colonel John Henry Townsend Icke. -and in fact this model was featured in The AUTOCAR, of December 1917, while Col. Icke was still captive!





    The original article appeared in the AUTOCAR of Dec. 1917, and these most recent images are taken from the Sept. 2017 issue of The MODEL ENGINEER.
    The article was written by Mark Kallenberg. Pretty close to one hundred years later.

    Crankcase and gearings, differential, suspension and steering are all present, made with some files and a lot of tenacity. Soldering was probably done very old-school with an iron held in a flame, and then applied when hot PAST MASTERS and PIONEERS enough. No screws, just tabs and pins.

    Approximately 1/10th scale, it is of no specific automobile, but a generalization.

    I stated when I first started this thread, that I am not particularly a "car guy" as much as I am a "model guy". -I really am fascinated by models. Of course I have seen a lot of models, so it does take something special to do it for me now, but again it can be of anything! I have seen models of staircases, and architectural details, patent models, anatomical models, . . .

    For those who work in wood? I do suggest looking into some of the admiralty models that were made before electric lighting, and power tools! -and for anyone wanting to push they're limits, as to what can be done? Miniature-wise? Look up Llyod McCaffery!

    Lloyd McCaffery!
