Automodello Steps Up Big!

1:24 & 1:43 | prices vary


We used to think of Automodello as an impressive new brand wellon its way to becoming a player in the premium 1:43 segment. Weno longer need to qualify the statement — they are a player, andnot just in 1:43. They have just released this 1:24 replica of the1930 Brooks Stevens Cord L-29 Speedster, and it is a stunner,dressed in formal black and white with etched and polishedbright work. Stevens was known for his workat Kaiser and Studebaker, but this was the car hedesigned for himself, and he loved it so muchhe kept it until his passing in 1995! Collectors will treasure theirs as well, presented as it is as a 499-piece limited edition and mounted on a presentation base with a clamshell box.1:43 is still Automodello’s bread and butter though, and these prototypes of the Norman Timbs Streamliner showcase why.The luscious curves of the one-of-a-kind special are beautifully captured.
