    AutoArt Update on 1/18 scale Focus RS - COMING JULY/AUGUST

    The headline says it all, but...

    Like many of you, I bought my Focus RS AFTER the OTTO models were already sold out. And it bums me out. After some googling today though, I found AutoArt said back about a year ago they'd be making a actual diecast 1/18 scale Focus RS. And supposedly, they'll make it in Blue, Black, Grey, and White. I haven't confirmed Red.

    Anyways, it's been a year. And nothing. So I reached out to them (AutoArt) today and they've confirmed its still in the works. Their best guess is July/August.

    I don't know about you, but I'm very excited. I hope our tea drinking friends can send some our way if we don't get some in the states.

    You can get Otto models on eBay. I have three Race Reds.

    wow, the sample looks pretty good. IIRC the otto one is a one piece and doesn't have openable doors? attention to detail seems really good too, likely won't be cheap. hope the quality doesn't suffer when produced at large volume.

    personally I was hoping to also see other versions i.e. RHD, north america, and regular seats, but I guess it could get too expensive for development and production and unlikely to happen unless done by some big company.

    You are correct the Otto models are one piece resin models not die cast like these. They still look great but do not have opening doors, hatch or hood like this.

    Personally I can't wait for these to come out and glad somebody contacted them. I have a stealth grey and nitrous blue LE Otto model but will be very happy to add to the collection. Hopefully they can keep their promise and deliver models later this summer. Wondering if all colors will be available at once or like the Ottos do runs of each color?

    Yeah, same here. Have the Otto blue and grey. But I am still waiting for a black one from whichever come out first. Otto made blue/grey/white but no black...email them and replied saying no ETA. Hope AutoArt makes the black one too.

    Good find. I'm going to go ahead and pre-order because I'm impatient.

    Looks super impressive. I'm not one for models but I am actually tempted by this. I'd probably pull the trigger if they do a version with the silver alloys, to match my car.
