Marshall Buck has been immersed in art and culture from childhood. He has always been fascinated with all types of miniatures, but with a strong penchant for cars. As a child, he bought car magazines 2-to-1 over comic books. His desire to be around exotic and classic automobiles also began in childhood, when friends and family would come to visit, and he and they would go for drives in the latest Aston Martin, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, etc. Buck’s serious collecting and professional model building began in earnest in the 1970s. His career has been diverse, ranging from professional photography to television production to exotic-car sales. In the late 1970s and early ’80s, while working in TV production, he was also custom-building model cars for himself and a few select customers, one of whom convinced Buck to go into model-making full-time (that gentleman remains a client to this day). Hence, in 1982, Buck founded Creative Miniature Associates, now CMA Models Inc. Since the start of CMA, he has been involved with the finest high-end automotive miniatures as a collector, model maker, manufacturer and boutique dealer, catering to collectors worldwide. Buck’s client list is a who’s who of movers and shakers. For more than 30 years, Buck has been authoring feature articles and regular columns on models and collecting for various publications, including Cavallino, Vintage Motorsport, and Sports Car Market, as well as Mesh New England. He is also cofounder and editor of AutoMobilia Magazine.
