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 […]

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 […]

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. 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. […]

Lap of Luxury: M&D International Rolls Out A Winner

Luxury Collectibles came out of left field (actually, Brooklyn, New York, by way of Florida and China) a couple of years ago, and got pushed out into the daylight by the father and son team of Drew and Matt Heitner. Drew is the head, and Matt the heir apparent, of M&D International, the worldwide point […]

BONUS PHOTOS: Tecnomodel 1:18 Aston Martin One-77

This bonus gallery is dedicated to the finer things… like this 1:18 resin-bodied model of the famed (not to mention extremely scarce) Aston Martin One-77. The real thing tags in the multi-millions range; this curbside model will set you back around $500.00 – and every penny is on display atop a hand-finished alcantara-topped display base. […]

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 […]

ABC 1:43 “Hayworth” Cadillac: The Royal Treatment

ABC 1:43 “Hayworth” Cadillac: The Royal Treatment

Hollywood royalty just ain’t what it used to be, especially when it comes to cars. Off-the-shelf blinged Escalades, store bought Ferraris, Bentleys, and Lambos (or their “green” nemeses – eco-friendly, celebrity-driven Priuses and Volts), simply lack star-level visual impact when heaving up to the curb. Back in the good old days, things were different – and […]

NEO’s 1:43 U.S. Luxury Cars: American Beauty

Perspective is a powerful thing, especially in hindsight. Case in point: In the late 1970s and early 1980s, despite being rocked by a suitcase full of oil crises, corporate mileage mandates, and federal insurance and air pollution regulations, Detroit’s product planners and stylists somehow managed to keep the cars coming – and even made some […]
