Why Picking Up Model Cars Is So Much Fun
diecast metal cars are a different type of collectible. They can be used, played with, and handled without getting ruined. Many collections are handed down from generation to generation and used as play toys by children. They are sturdy, colorful, and do not depreciate if touched. It is possible to chip the paint, or dent the body if dropped, but that takes a lot of abuse to accomplish. Half the fun of having the collection is taking pieces down and enjoying them.
Smaller ones, such as those made in a 1:64 scale, are typically displayed in a case or on a shelf. The size does not allow for intricate detail or moving parts. Larger Diecast cars, like those made on a 1:24 or 1:18 scale, have moving parts. The trunks, hoods and doors open, revealing stunning accuracy of the interior. Some even have engine replicas under the hood, depending on the size and the manufacturer.
Many of the cars, trucks, planes, ships, motorcycles, and police and fire fighter replicas are sold separately. That allows for affordable pricing so people can build upon the collection piece by piece. Some of the most popular models, such as fifties classic cars, are sold both separately, and in sets of three, six, or ten, depending on the scale size. Collectors can select a large 1:18 model of a 1959 Mercury Park Lane Hard Top in gold, if they prefer, or opt for the collection of fifties classic muscle cars. A late 60’s Detroit Muscle Collection is available for those interested in performance and muscle cars.
