The Circus Model Builders, Inc.
Ladies and Gentlemen, girls and boys of all ages, welcome to the Circus Model Builders, Inc. Founded in 1936, the craftspeople of the CMB have been preserving the great American circus through their models.
Circus Model Builders are men, women, boys and girls who love the circus so much they want to have a circus of their own. They have learned about the circus from the days when the first train or truck pulled onto an open lot, erected the circus big top, put in bleachers, unloaded the wagons of animals and props and let the show begin. Once the shows were over everything got packed up and sent to the next lucky town to start all over again.
The CMB offers it’s members advise and assistance in starting or expanding your own circus model, get model plans, see pictures and displays by fellow builders, receive the Little Circus Wagon- official magazine of the CMB, have the opportunity to meet with other model builders near you and join a “Ring”, as well as attend regional shows and conventions.
The CMB site offers membership opportunities, related books and logo items for sale, as well as resources for more information. Come and join us!
