OttOmobile 1:12 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 in Detail

A Shelby legend is making a return in 1:12 scale.  That would be OttOmobile’s replica
of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, we believe the first ever in 1:12.  The White exterior with Blue decal work is the pinnacle colour for the ’67.  Only 999 pieces of this puppy will be issued, ship date is given as January 2017.

About the GT500…  “One of the legends of the American automobile industry, born in ’67, was the result of the restyling of Ford Mustang fastbacks. This variant, prepared by Carroll Shelby, is notable for it’s more aggressive and sporty look. With air intakes on the front and sides, the tuning is even more impressive on the rear with very special lights (borrow from the Mercury Cougars), as well as a spoiler. Of course, though, the most important change is hidden behind the bonnet, with a 450hp V8 allowing it to hit 0 to 100 km/h in just over 6 seconds, with a maximum speed of 220. Numbers that were frankly astounding for the time. ”

    Nice, but rather basic, and I can’t believe they modeled this with an automatic!!

    I just received this OTTO 1/12 Shelby GT500. I bought it because I lovethe’67 GT500, and I collect and build lot of large scale models and diecasts. I am disappointed with this one, maybe because I am used to having a lot of detail and the ability to add more if I want. This Mustang is VERY basic. The windows are a thin plastic sheet, cut to shape. All windows are closed so you cannot push the plastic back up if (WHEN) it warps inward at the corners. You cannot really see the interior very well. The paint is ok, but not great. Only one paint scheme is a poor way to market this car. The front “grill” is not a grill, but a solid piece of black plastic with no detail or real grill effect. It sits too far back under the hood, making it hard to even see. The most glaring shortfall is the lack of chrome (or simulated stainless) trim around the windows. Cheap, dull silver paint does not cut it, and should have been chromed. There is no antenna, but one could be made and added. The undercarriage is like a cheap toy, and the nice wheels do not turn at all. Overall, would give it a “5” out of 10. For $150-200 it is something to add detail to, but not at $250-350.
