Soul Models Sample Ariel Atom V8

Another player in the sealed resin market is Soul Models.  Their first upcoming release is the exciting and unusual 1:18 Ariel Atom V8.  We believe a first in 1:18 scale!  Soul Models is committed to “new or non-existent models”, hence the Ariel Atom.  Each piece is hand made and hand painted.  Though their initial sample pics look decent, the car does look somewhat toy-like in appearance.  Let’s hope the final product improves and they stick to their guns, offering unique and non-existent specimens.

    The model looks toy-like because the actual car is toy-like! Actually, it looks rather good.

      Totally disagree, 1:1 is far from toy-like IMO. Head over to their website and review the close-up images, your opinion will change. Let’s hope the prototype evolves into some good!

    promising brand!

    A breath of fresh air from the overload of Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s. I’ll be watching this one, because it would fit in my collection perfectly.

  4. Zondaracer says:

    Just read on their website it will be 169 euros plus tax. I suppose that’s vat within Europe (around 20%).

    • Patrick T. says:

      yes, I guess models of theirs will cost between 200,- and 250,- incl vat.

      I hope they bring out many nice models and that they succeed on the market.

    This Atom V8, Autoart BAC and a KTM Xbow from somewhere would be an absolute treat..

    I like it, I was actually in the process of making my own atom. even made a prototype 3-d printed frame.
    this thing looks really nice, hope they keep up on the quality and hope it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg considering its resin(like the gt spirit models).

    An hour ago I received mine, no. 749. I found it completely smashed up inside the box. The model had broken away from its studs and while bouncing around in the box all major parts broke off.
