My 1:18 Ottomobile Group B collection

Recommended Posts

Anyone wanna see these? I’m not much of a model collector, but I love Otto products and I love Group B. So here we are.

I don’t have many, but I guess I am amassing what you would call a collection.

The Delta S4 arrived today. It is part of a set with a team van and trailer, but I will be selling those. It’s all about the crazy, bespoke cars for me. 
I also think that the utter failure that is the BX 4TC is pretty Autoshite.

The Audi appears to have acquired a broken wiper!

Does anyone else collect these? My mate has loads. Whatever takes his fancy. I’ll not collect anything other than Group B, though.

Very nice! 

Got a fair few Ottos, my favourites being the Espace f1, 306 maxi and Sapphire Cosworths. 

Sounds great, mate! Get the pics up. We should turn this into an Otto thread. I’d love to see all of yours.

Started buying them when they first came out, so cheap back then didn't think twice about changing wheels and messing about with mods. Glad I kept the original parts with now the price of them has gone. 

Most are away in the loft but have a few dusty examples in cabinets. 😔 Darn house reservations, dust gets everywhere.

Fantastic, mate! The Espace F1 really stands out for me.  So crazy.

You have the quite the collection. :cool: Know what you mean about the prices, these days.

Still disappointed I missed the crazy BX stuff. 

Used to buy and sell a lot even got stuff imported from Oz. 

Once the house is finished I want to sort a display out.

I’ve only found out about Otto models very recently, but they are lovely looking models and very well made & detailed.

Heres mine, mk2 Capri & Volvo 740.

I really fancy a few of the BOS models 1/18s too, including that mk2 Granny!

Was gonna say ifso is it a chasseur

I really need to get some original wheels for it. The plates are just water decals. 

 

Sorry don't know how to multi quote, @Asimo Otto did an Aventine and its another I missed out on. 😑

I've got around 40 or so 1/18 models all still boxed and up the loft, I was at a market once years ago and saw a nice yellow yank model and bought it then just kept buying more even though I had nowhere to put them, it's addictive isn't it.

I have a few Ottos in my small collection of 1/18 versions of cars wot I own in full size.

Rather than post them here to be quickly lost forever, can I suggest the mods merge this into the Shite in Miniature thread?

Yes, I agree, thats what I started it for way back in 2012.

I'm not really a fan of 'new' models of old cars as I prefer to have one that was released at the same time as the real car. 

However I'll make an exception for that 740, really nice. Otto also do an Audi 80 Cabriolet in the same Santorini blue as mine but the interior colour is different.

I’ve not got any ottos, but I do have the Best Of Show Senator A. It’s fantastic. One day I’ll treat myself to an Otto, but I’ve been waiting for them to release something I really like.

I won an Otto in a magazine comp a few years ago.  306 Maxi rally car, which was a lovely model.  Not being a big rally collector I took it to Cyprus next time we went, for my friend Costas who was delighted.

Here's my OTTO. Just a standard 325 face lift model. A very nice model in itself.

However my head has been turned by a minichamp 1:18. This is a pre face lift and I have never seen a model of one. This almost matches my own in terms of chrome and colour. 

You may not think of the chromies as autoshite but in the E30 world the chromies are not loved and the 323i is least loved.
