NEW VIDEO! Automodello’s 1962 Mustang I Concept in 1:24, 1:43!

It’s going to be an extra happy holiday if you’re a collector of high-end resincast models of offbeat subjects – like the Automodello 1962 Mustang I concept car. They’ve brought the model out in 1:24 and 1:43 – a first for the company – and as you’ll see in the video, that’s a trend we’re […]

Proto-Pony: Automodello’s 1962 Ford Mustang I Puts History on the Hoof

The question one has to ask oneself regarding Automodello isn’t so much why they make the models that they do, but where they get the nerve to take on some of the way-off-the-ranch subjects that they make. No, we’re not complaining. Actually, we’re damned impressed by this maker, and we have been from day one. […]

Winning Streak

Automodello Mormon Meteor Speed records were big news in the 1920s and 1930s, in the air, on the ground, and on the water.

Automodello Gets Ready to Launch a Meteor

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. Check out the unmistakable shape and sweep of the car’s aerodynamic body, and the stance of the replica on the as-yet-untooled wheels. […]

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 […]

The Phantom Rises: Automodello Releases the Phantom Corsair in 1:24 Resin

Rust Heinz’s Phantom Corsair was a standout machine at a time when streamlining and aerodynamics (or at least styling that looked aerodynamic) were making profound changes to car design – and, by extension, what folks considered stylish and modern.

The Phantom Menace: Automodello’s Corsair is on deck

Those 57 Varieties must have been running pretty well when Rusty Heinz contracted Maurice Schwartz (of Bohman & Schwartz coach builders) to help design and build a special car, atop an already special machine.
