To make that even more obvious, Automodello decided not to include the window on the Continue Reading...

REVIEW: Automodello 1:43 Noble M600

Words and Photos courtesy of Wes Shakirov   The Noble M600 is my favourite modern super(hyper?)car simply because it’s so analogue and old fashioned. A Yamaha V8 with two giant turbos delivering up to 650 ponies in a package that weighs a paltry 1200 kg. Proper manual gearbox? Check. Traction control that can be switched off? Check. Three stage power Continue Reading...

REVIEW: Automodello 1934 Packard Twelve Convertible

Words and photos courtesy of Wes Shakirov / StratosWRC   If you’re into models of vintage and classic cars, doubtless you’ve heard of Automodello by now.
