Maerklin has always made their high-end models in house.
They use a different technique than the earlier LGB Magnus and Aster models which were basically hand-made models constructed of brass and stainless steel.
The new 'limited edition' LGB models use the Maerklin technique of "Mixed construction die casting / brass centrifugal casting" - on-line translation of
"Mischbauweise Druckguss / Messing-Schleuderguss" which Maerklin has used for years.
