After a fi rst, stringent quality control process, the casts enter the paint shop, where they are painted in three steps, using the same paint that is used for the respective full-sized BMW model. After hardening and cooling its time to tackle the details: the so-called tampon printing process enables us to print on even the smallest components. With our smallest-scale models, the results of this advanced process for example a detailed
replica of the BMW logo on the bonnet can only be fully appreciated when viewed through a magnifying glass. Tiny chrome surfaces provide further exquisite details to enjoy. They make the exterior mirrors sparkle, for example, and are also used to give the radiator grille itstrademark shiny appearance. Real carpeting in original BMW colours for the footwells and luggage compartment and realistic reproduction of leather up-holstery seamsmake the interior of the 1:18-scale modelslook incredibly authentic. Once all the
details have been taken care of, the indi-vidual components are assembled into a real BMW by hand. And it is this precise workmanship that makes BMW Miniatures so unique, turning every miniature into a true original.
It doesnt matter whether you see it on a twisting country road or on a polished mahogany desk: a BMW is always a fascinating sight. To ensure that BMW Miniatures look just as attractive as the originals, they are manufactured in close cooperation with BMW designers. This applies to BMW Art Cars as much as it does to the new BMW 5 Series. Every BMW Miniature delights with numerous details and precise workmanship. At the start of production, the design department uses computers to process
the specifi cations laid down by the BMW engineers. To make sure that important details like the logo or windscreen wipers are both recognisable and robust enough to survive handling, simply miniaturising the original parts will not do. Instead, individual parts have to be redesigned almost from scratch. Afterwards, a die-cast mould is fash-ioned for every component. This is so time-consuming that it can take up to ten weeks. But it is also well worth the effort: the die-cast moulds provide the framework
