SNEAK PEEK: Automodello’s 1:24 Mormon Meteor Lands!

We’re starting to feel like proud parents. Well, a little, anyway. We’ve watched Automodello’s outstanding 1:24 resin replica of Ab Jenkins’ 1935 Duesenberg – the  “Mormon Meteor” – go from sketch to tooling model to unpainted resin prototype.

NEW VIDEO! Automodello’s 1:24 Phantom Corsair

Yes, we know: Automodello’s Phantom Corsair – the company’s very first effort in 1:24 – has been sold out at the factory for a few months, now.

Rock With Brock: M2 Machines 1956 Ford F-100

Most classic truck enthusiasts agree: the 1956 Ford F-100 is one of the most recognized and respected pickup trucks from the 1950s.

Remember that 1:24 Automodello Duesenberg “Mormon Meteor” we showed you pre-production pics of a few weeks ago? Well, Jim Cowen, Automodello’s president, sent along these factory-fresh (and un-retouched) photos of the car in its latest phase of development.

Automodello’s number one man – Jim Cowen – sent along these pictures of the master resin for their upcoming mid-scale Duesenberg “Mormon Meteor”, and to say that we’re blown away is an understatement.

Darrin’s Darling: GreenLight’s 1:24 “Bewitched” Camaro RS

When Darrin Stephens married Samantha on the classic TV show Bewitched (1964-1972), he had no idea she would turn out to be a witch – let alone drive such a classic, now historic, convertible. It was a good case of product placement on Chevys’ part; millions of viewers got to see Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) looking […]

Look Back 1:24: Danbury Mint 1948 Chrysler Town & Country

Look Back 1:24: Danbury Mint 1948 Chrysler Town & Country

In certain cultures, it is believed that wood is capable of absorbing and storing the essence of human contact, like some instant-on organic recorder. Perhaps it’s that mystical connection that makes old wood-bodied cars so attractive to car buffs… and makes the material so welcomed for use in a model. Danbury Mint’s 1948 Chrysler Town […]
