      What Is a Diecast Car?

      Diecast cars are miniature replicas of real-life vehicles cast using a metal mould and are typically made from a combination of zinc, lead, and aluminium, with some plastic occasionally added to the mix.

      Diecast cars are popular collectibles thanks to their scale and the fact that they are available in a wide range of makes and models, including classic cars, sports cars, and even military vehicles. 

      Diecast cars are much more than just toys; they are a passion for collectors who appreciate the attention to detail and craftsmanship that goes into each model. 

      For diecast cars in Australia, there’s no better place to shop than Hobbyco.

      Can You Play With Diecast Cars?

      While there’s nothing stopping you from playing with diecast cars, it’s not their primary purpose. Diecast car enthusiasts are much more likely to have their models kept safe and secure behind a display case than out in the open for anyone to handle. This is particularly true for models that are rarer than others — diecast models produced in limited quantities can be quite valuable.

      Keep in mind, too, that diecast car models tend to be small in size and aren’t always suitable for kids to play with.

      Are Diecast Cars Collection a Good Investment?

      Diecast cars have always been popular collector's items, but what many people may not realise is that they can also be a smart investment. The value of diecast cars can vary greatly depending on several factors, such as the car's rarity, condition, and historical significance. 

      If you can acquire a highly sought-after diecast car in excellent condition, it could potentially appreciate over time. However, there’s no guarantee. Most collectors simply enjoy the satisfaction of growing their collection rather than seeing it as a source of potential profit.

      How Do I Start a Diecast Car Collection?

      The best way to start a diecast car collection is by browsing the range of models available at Hobbyco! We’ve got models available in a range of sizes and styles to suit the interests of all collectors.

      Take the 1/43 Race 2022 F1 Red Bull Racing RB 18, for example. Perfect for fans of high-speed Formula 1 racing, the diecast model is a miniature replica of the car driven by the one and only Max Verstappen in the 2022 Formula 1 season. With highly-detailed electrostatic paint coating and steerable rubber tires, it’s very popular and makes an excellent starting point for your diecast car collection.

      If high-speed racing isn’t quite your thing, why not consider the 1/18 Holden EH Panel Van Tastes Of Australia Collection Vegemite? The car comes complete with a number of fantastic features, including functional doors, a bonnet, and a Certificate of Authenticity. As a Licensed Product, it will make a great foundation for your collection.

      What Is the Most Popular Scale for Diecast?

      Diecast cars in Australia come in a variety of different scales and sizes. Certain styles of diecast cars tend to come in certain sizes. Racing cars, for example, are commonly found in the 1/43 scale — like the 1/43 Race 2022 F1 Mercedes-AMG W13. Old-school vintage cars, on the other hand — such as the 1/18 Holden EH Utility I Heritage Collection Ampol tend to be a little larger at 1/18.
