Automodelli Studio History

Automodelli Studio History or how we have managed to survive GFC and grow when the banks told us we could not

2004

In June Automodelli Studio was set up as a model building service and we went on line in September

2005

With the demise of many model shops in Australia we decided there was a need to import models and kits

2006

We started our own range of hand crafted resin models in partnership with David Whitehead in Canberra

2007

We now import from more than 100 suppliers worldwide all forms of 1/43rd scale models/kits/accessories

2008

With GFC and the rising Aussie Dollar we started a partnership with Jemmpy in France to produce some of our range

2009

In a depressed market we consolidated our business and started a built only range of very limited release

2010

We starter to produce photo etching and most of our own decals. David starts his own range of hand crafted Aussie Porsche

2011

We set up in partnership with SMTS in the UK to manufacture a metal range of models

2012

The metal range distributed from the UK for Europe saving double handling and shipping charges

2013

We now have a resin range of kits producing 63 models and a metal range producing 17 models

2014

2014 is our 10th Birthday what more can I say! We now produce over 100 kits of our own and supply models, kits and accessories from all the 1/43 scale suppliers.

2015

A full on year of building models and producing kits for export as well as the home market. We have had to limit building to 1/43 scale only as we had far too much work

2016

With the ever increasing cost of shipping we decided to produce as much in Australia as possible and have moved in to metal casting to complement the resin side of the business. This has allowed us to introduce a Premier Range of kits 90% of which are made in Australia
