I only have one AutoArt myself but from what I've seen, I think they're in their own league when it comes to quality and detail, at least in 1/18. In the 1/43 range I would count IXO and some Oxfords. But this is great.

That is sweet! I love those big Mustangs and AutoArt have some amazing models. I will be getting a Sunstar 1973 Mach One in about a month. I will show pics of it when I get. It does not have the details like the AutoArt but its not bad for what I am paying for it.

That car is very impressive. I think HT member Airborne has one of those AutoArt Stangs too, and the thing looks 1:1 from a few feet away in a pic. That interior shot is great.


I'd like to expand into 1:18's when space and finances allow, too bad they're much more expensive than they used to be. But then the good stuff costs big money anyway. Brands like CMC, Exoto and such. That's what you call collecting for quality.

You know, for me its about the car and the person who loves the car....its not about value or details. Its call perferance....I may love the details and you may love the simplicity of the car more than details...For me its all about details for you could just having it regardless of details....passion!...and I respect that most...So please?...when you get it post it here if you like, I ready don't mind at all....and thank you too....:thumbsup:

If it wasn't for the storage and display space...I'd still like to get one or two more. For now it is just the BMW.
