This model is a new line of 1:24 scale models by Automodello. These fine quality resincast models set a new standard in fine resin models. Combining state of the art resin casting technology with old world craftsmanship, this new line was designed and developed by legendary automobile designer in real and miniature Raffi Minasian for Automodello.
Raffi's famous 1:24 scale masterpiece - the Duesenberg Coupe Simone has been considered by many to be one of the most beautiful scale models ever designed and crafted. What better car to launch this new collection after the inaugural release of the 1938 Phantom Corsair in February 2012. This model continues a collection that features some of the most elegant and revolutionary automobile designs of the twentieth century.
