Having been fascinated with the Bricklin ever since seeing one in the 1982 film Gone in 60 Seconds 2: The Junkman, I've been waiting for a model ever since. There have been a few handmade bespoke model Bricklins, but never a series-production model until now. Certainly, it was worth the wait!

Automodello's Bricklin captures the lines of the real car perfectly, with an excellent rendering of the interior. This isn't a car with lots of chrome or badging, but the badges and details which are there are all perfectly replicated from the originals - this really does look like the real thing scaled down! Our samples were finished in Safety White and Safety Orange, both looking great, but I think the Safety Orange one is my favourite.

Overall, a five-star model all round. If I had to nitpick, I'd say a black wash on the wheels would have been great, but I'm ecstatic there's a model Bricklin at last and that it's this good!
