Automodello's first 1/24 model, the amazing Phantom Corsair.

The first in Automodello's 1/24 scale lineup, this model is cast in resin and was designed and developed by designed Raffi Minasian. The model is limited to 299 worldwide with a hand-numbered certificate included with each. Gloss black automotive quality paint is applied by hand while interior materials are textured to scale, and the carpet flocked. All chrome parts are chrome foiled or plated. Wheels roll. There are no opening features. Model comes in its own display box.

When reviewing models, I always try to be as critical as possible because we get so many great ones these days, but if they all get five stars, it ceases to be meaningful. However, with Automodello's first 1/24 scale car - the fabulous 1938 Phantom Corsair - it's virtually impossible to award anything other than the full five!

This is a fantastic choice for the company's entry into the world of 1/24, with few models having been produced previously, and none at this scale. Just as it's hard to not give this top ratings all round, it's hard to pick out any details as better than others - the trim, the interior, the fit of the parts, are all top notch. Automodello really aren't messing around with this model - there's a wealth of photoetching, plus acid-etched bumper detail! Not to mention flocked carpets and correct-grain seats, plus a dashboard to die for, with the car's ahead-of-its-time multi-function centre-positioned gauge reproduced to perfection.

With no opening features, moulding the car with the roof panel removable was an excellent choice too, as it allows lucky owners of the model to view the full wealth of interior detail. Packaging is just as impressive, with an attractive and high-quality display box and numbered certificate provided for every model.

In searching for something negative to say about this model, all I can find is that it's going to be tough to live up to with the next one - although I'm sure Automodello will manage to do so just fine!
