I had to find this car at another seller because Mint Models did not have it even though it was listed as in stock when I ordered it, Autoart is not going to make any more of this car so what is out there is what you have to buy. 

As usual the external detail is very nice with deep rich paint, the lines of the car are very well done, the rims, brake calibers and rotors look good, the hood and trunk have nicely done hinges with simulated gas struts. The interior looks good, not the best out there but looks good, the engine detail is not as detailed as some but then again when you open a hood on todays vehicles you can't really see anything so it is true to form. This makes a very nice display piece and the composite molds that Autoart has gone to really allow for very crisp lines, the one exterior detail that could be improved by Autoart is the door handles of these composite cars other than that they have excellent exterior detail. 

For some reason I lost access to my YouTube Diecast account it is still there but I can't find a way into it as it does not show up on my YouTube account anymore for some reason. Strange. 

Here is a video and I will follow a second post with photos.

Great addition.  Love the display with the 2 cars by each manufacturer.

Well John,

I'm so glad you finally got one!  Yeah, it all looks really nice; sooner or later I'll have to pull the trigger on one of these. They're just too nice to pass up. Your "modern Hotrod/muscle car collection" is one that I want!

OK, just to be crystal clear.....  When you say "composite molds" ... you mean PLASTIC.  Correct?   There are no diecast (metal) body panels anywhere?  Correct?

Thanks.

-Chris

@chris...that is correct, its basically plastic/resin.  Here's AA's info page on the composite models...

@chris Yes they are an ABS type material, for the body with a diecast chassis to make the body rigid. They are very well done and not a plastic toy appearance, the panels are thinner the windows are some of the best if not the best out there when it comes to scaling them for thickness. Open the link Gavin posted and it will take you to a full explanation of the process. 

Some diehard collectors talk down on them but I think Autoart has done a good job overall with the process as they look very nice in person.

THANK YOU Gavin and John.  That was a VERY informative read and helpful information; now I completely understand (and really want an AA composite replica!).

I think all these "composite jobs" look great. I truly appreciate Autoart's explanation; they seem to have covered every angle and all major collector concerns.

I replaced the video with a YouTube video because this site does not play back videos very well when they are directly copied to the site, so now you can see the video without all the choppy stops and goes in the YouTube version. 

For some reason my Diecast account no longer shows up on my desk top computer and I have not found a way to get back to it, but the account still shows up on my iPhone so I am copying the videos over to the iPhone and then uploading them from there to YouTube. 

The YouTube video is in the first post of this thread.

Geez whiz, 

I got an Autoart C7 years ago. It was a composite and I could find not one negative comment to be made. It was a GREAT model and I sold it here on the Legacy Auction site. Steve

@100ford2003, I have no complaints with AA's composite models (now their current prices...that's another issue.  😉 ).

I only have one, their C7R & I'm very happy with it.
