      What Are Diecast Model Cars?

      Diecast model cars are miniature replicas of real cars, often used as promotional items or collectibles. These models are made using a process called "diecasting," where molten metal is injected into a mould shaped like a car. This allows for precise and intricate details, such as tires, logos, and even tiny replica drivers. 

      Diecast models come in various scales, from 1:64 to 1:18, with larger scales being more expensive and highly sought after by collectors. In addition to models of regular production vehicles, diecast companies also produce limited edition models and promotional mugs for car manufacturers and racing teams. 

      Diecast model cars make for a sophisticated addition to any car enthusiast's collection and are available to purchase right here at Hobbyco!

      What Is The Biggest Diecast Scale?

      The first thing to know about diecast model cars is that they come in a variety of different sizes or scales.

      When it comes to collecting diecast model cars, scale is everything. The precise measurements ensure that each vehicle in your collection matches the real-life proportions. Common scales include 1:18, 1:24, and 1:64. The larger the second number is in the ratio, the larger the diecast car will be. With that in mind, a model that measures 1:18 is a lot bigger than one that measures 1:64. 

      The biggest diecast car scale available to purchase at Hobbyco is 1:10. The Welly 1:10 Honda CB500F stands fully assembled at approximately 20cm long and 12cm high with moveable wheels and handlebars.

      Far more common are diecast collectable model cars at 1:18 scale. These are still relatively large, making them reasonably easy to assemble.

      Take the Bburago 1/18 Ferrari SF90 Stradale, for example. With original interior trim, a detailed engine compartment, turning front wheels, and an opening hood and trunk, it's the perfect example of Bburago's high-quality approach to car collectibles. The model stands at 16.5 x 33 x 12.7cm, making this 1:18 scale car a significant addition to your diecast collection.

      Will Diecast Models Increase In Value?

      Diecast models are highly collectible, and their prices can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. Limited edition models, those produced in rare colours, and models with unique features can all increase in value over time. Additionally, models from popular or iconic brands such as Ferrari or Lamborghini often hold their value better than lesser-known brands. 

      However, as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder — perhaps nothing is more valuable to you than your Classic Carlectables Tastes of Australia Arnotts Holden EH Panel Van!

      It is important to note that the condition of the model also plays a significant role in determining its value. A well-maintained model with its original packaging can fetch a higher price than one that has scratches or missing parts. 

      As with any collectible item, it is difficult to predict exactly how much a diecast model will increase in value over time. The best way to ensure a profitable investment is to do thorough research and carefully choose models that have the potential for appreciation in the future.

      Whether you're investing in model car collectibles for present-day enjoyment or looking to create a profit further down the track, Hobbyco has a range of collectible model cars to suit everyone.
