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. Among the daring fellows who were pushing the envelope – to occasionally fatal levels – David Abbot “Ab” Jenkins was a bit of a celebrity on terra firma, with more automotive speed records […]

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

We’re starting to feel like proud parents. Well, a little, anyway.

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. But that didn’t stop us from wanting to give the car some video time. With a perfect casting and a dead-on replication of the car’s every exterior (and, […]

UPDATE! Automodello’s “Mormon Meteor”, Painted, Tweaking, Closer to Production

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. You can almost smell the paint drying. “It still needs some chrome, instead of plating, and we’ll […]

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.

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

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 cost twenty-four grand to build at a time when a mini-mansion could be had […]

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. Thus the dashing coachwork of the Phantom Corsair, of which only one would ever be made, was built onto a Cord […]
