I do not sell these models. This site is only dedicated to my private collection.

Comparisons Detail

Click to enlarge!

   Watching the models, it's easy to note the shapes of these 2 models are similar with some little differences on the front and on the wheels. Moreover, the color is not the same: on the Shelby Collectibles (on the left) it's more bright, while on the AutoArt (on the right) it's more tenuous. However, we will delve these details with the help of the next pictures.

   At seconda look, the Shelby Collectibles looks more full-bodied, while the AutoArt looks more slim but I think it depeneds especially by the dimension of the wheels.

   The front views are similar: the AutoArt is little more detailed, especially on the front grill (it's perforated) and the lights, where the stirrups are not visible. Moreover, the Shelby Cobra logo on the AutoArt is a photoengraving, while on the Shelby Collectibles is a plastic part.

   On the rear view, the AutoArt is perfect, while the Shelby Collectibles has some defects: first of all, the lights are too simple (without the black frame around them), the white stripes are not perfectly straight (especially non the spoiler) and the third stop light is not a reflector but it's only a red portion of the shell.

   Watching this picture, you can see the great difference about the suspensions height: on the Shelby Collectibles the space between the wheel and the mudguard is very high and it seems not good for a sports car.

   Watching the back window and the interior part, it's easy to say the AutoArt is very detailed (serigraphy on the window and velvet to cover the plastic parts), while the Shelby Collectibles is more simple without details and leaving the plastic on sight.

   Comparing the front/lateral views, it's easy to see some defects on the Shelby Collectibles: first of all, the inclination of the front is wrong... it's too flat, while the AutoArt has the correct inclination. Moreover, the tire is too big respect the entire wheel and it's too shiny.

   Comparing the rear/lateral views, it's easy to see the same defects (described on the previous picture) on the Shelby Collectibles. Moreover, the rims on the AutoArt are more detailed: for example, it's possible to distinguish every screw around the central hubcap.

   Opening the doors, we can see the first great difference: on the AutoArt the opening system is perfect because it use a pivot similar to the real car, instead the Shelby Collectibles use an economic method (a simple slumped arm) to open the doors. Moreover, the AutoArt has a detailed interior with a velvet on the floor and gummy seats; the Shelby Collectibles is less detailed but on the whole it's good.

   Comparing the engine bay, we can assert that the 2 models are very similar: infact, every model has an economic system to open the hood and the engine is realized with a lot of plastic. The Shelby Collectibles has more chromed parts, while the AutoArt has some parts better defined.

   Same remark for the trunk: every model has a cheap system to open the trunk, but in this case the AutoArt is little more detailed because the bay is covered with velvet while on the Shelby Collectibles there is only plastic on sight.

To complete this comparison, I can only say if you are searching a good and not expensive model, you can choose the Shelby Collectibles. Instead, if you are searching a perfect and exepensive model, you need to choose the AutoArt.

I am Legend: a new comparison!

   Today, I want to propose you a new comparison, this time between the Shelby Mustang GT500 produced by Shelby Collectibles and the Shelby Mustang GT500 produced by AutoArt. I want to thanks Roberto because he has furnished me the pictures of his Shelby Collectibles model. I hope you will appreciate it!
