The art of collecting diecast models has been around for decades. Some hobbies gradually wane and eventually stop drawing new interest. Diecast models are different. For nearly a hundred years, these tiny machines have drawn people who love to collect.
WHAT ARE DIECAST MODELS?
They are copies of machines made to scale. The larger sizes have typically been 1:12, 1:18 and 1:25—although some older large models from Europe were made to 1:24 scale. The sizes can go clear down to around 1:1200, but the “matchbox” size most of us are familiar with are about 1:66.
Whether the model is a car or truck, or even a train, it is usually made either of plastic, or of a zinc alloy. Older ones were made of iron. However, since iron doesn’t hold up to the elements well, not too many iron models are left.
DIECAST FOR TODAY
Prime Diecast is a company that provides models that are incredibly realistic. So much so, that a collector won’t know whether they’re walking into a hobby shop or onto a car lot. Of course, that’s only a joke, but it almost seems true.
Diecast cars often have wheels that can be turned with the steering wheel. They have rubber tires, and such detailed interior that it feels as if the radio would play. Also, a hood, doors and trunk that open and close.
WHY DO PEOPLE INVEST IN DIECAST
These models are very nice. Still, why invest in die cast? There’s no doubt they preserve the past in a way nothing else does. But as an investment, are they worth it?
In a single word, yes. Oh, not every single model will become an investment hit, but many do. Some will be worth many times their purchase price, eventually. And whether that type of price increase occurs or not, the pleasure brought by models is without measure.
PRIME DIECAST HAS OTHER PRODUCTS
“Toys” that are remote control operated, as well as electric ride ons for kids, are two groups of items we bring along. With parts that move like full-size cars, these are fun and long lasting. High quality metals with some plastic parts make our machines investments that will bring fun and pleasure for a long time.
We also make sure to give our toys a paint job that looks great. Do you like bright colors? Power stripes? Check out everything we provide. From our diecast models to the riders, you will find excitement, thought, and quality.
