NEW VIDEO! Automodello’s 1:24 Phantom Corsair

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, […]

Mo’ Photos! ACME’s 1:8 So-Cal Belly Tanker

Mo’ Photos! ACME’s 1:8 So-Cal Belly Tanker

We had the chance to have this bad boy in our hands this past week for the debut of Die Cast X TV LIVE (still do… don’t tell anyone), and these factory photos of the ACME/Real Art Replicas Belly Tanker tell the tale of a huge (22″) resin model with an opening rear section, a […]

Man Cave Alert: Pit Stop Furniture is Here

No matter what we call them – “man caves”, “decompression chambers”, or “toy rooms” – those spaces that we build within our homes and offices are where we enjoy our collections, celebrate our passion for the automobile, and share quality time with friends. These rooms and areas are truly special to us.  But up until […]

Hot Wheels Elite’s 1:18 “K.I.T.T.”: Mr. Hasselhoff, Your Ride Is (Almost) Ready

Hot Wheels Elite’s 1:18 “K.I.T.T.”: Mr. Hasselhoff, Your Ride Is (Almost) Ready

Hot Wheels Elite just sent along these photos of the first decorated  sample of their upcoming 1:18 Knight Industries “K.I.T.T.” – and suddenly it’s 1982, all over again. Sorry if we wax nostalgic; for a lot of viewers, the “Knight Industries Two Thousand” – a hyper-hyped-up 1982 Pontiac Trans Am with built-in Artificial Intelligence and […]
The Great Cerritos Shrinking Machine: AUTOart’s Incredible 1:43 Countach

The Great Cerritos Shrinking Machine: AUTOart’s Incredible 1:43 Countach

It’s a fair bet that somewhere in Cerritos, California, there exists a massive – though well-hidden – machine that is capable of reducing full sized automobiles to scale models you can palm. We haven’t seen it – yet – but we’re pretty sure that it exists somewhere deep below the warehouses and offices of Gateway […]

Son of the Desert: OTTO Model’s 1:18 Citroen “Sahara”

Son of the Desert: OTTO Model’s 1:18 Citroen “Sahara”

When Citroen decided to develop a four-wheel-drive system for their iconic, yet pokey 2CV, they did something typically Citroen: rather than engineer a set of troublesome rods, linkages and drive shafts to send engine power rearward, they simply installed another engine and transaxle in the car’s trunk. Voila! Four-wheel-drive. To say that it worked well […]

Hail, Victoria: Automodello Sees Red On Their ’38 Packard Twelve

Automodello continues to surprise collectors with new releases of well chosen, beautifully executed model cars. Coming soon is this Chinese Red 1938 Packard Twelve Convertible Victoria, based on an actual, mostly original car that’s on display at the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana. The museum car – the full-sized one – purportedly has less than […]

OTTO Know: New 1:18 Ford Fiesta XR2 from OTTO Models

OTTO Know: New 1:18 Ford Fiesta XR2 from OTTO Models

People wonder why we love OTTOmobile models so much – if they’ve even heard of OTTO at all. Doesn’t ring a bell, huh? You’re not alone. OTTO – which is based in France – has been making hella-good scale models of cars most Americans have never seen, for the past several years. That’s not exactly […]
SPY SHOTS! ACME Re-Fires Real Art Replicas!

SPY SHOTS! ACME Re-Fires Real Art Replicas!

You’d think that the hyper-slick photography we usually employ (if we do say so ourselves) would be the type of image we’d get excited about around here. But you’d be wrong. The photos we love – like these, from an undisclosed location far away, via ACME Trading – are the grainy, badly-lit kind you usually […]
