Diecast models are more than something to toy around with or just sit on a shelf.
Diecast models are an investment – in time, nostalgia and even in your bank balance.
You can have your own piece of a special mechanical and engineering history.
This is a chance to have a pristine example of a classic car, crane, truck and trailer or an iconic piece of construction or earthmoving machinery.
Whether it’s the leading brands of mobile, crawler or harbour cranes, or the top names in earthmoving, mining and cars – you want to have a quality product that will stand the test of time.
Plastic – not so fantastic
Diecast models and accessories win hands down over plastic versions.
There is a long list of advantages of metal, diecast models that include:
- A much higher level of detail
- Stronger longevity
- Stunning looks
- Available in a variety of scales
- More possibilities in customisation
With the offer of an incredible look and styling - plus the ability to be a true time capsule of an historic design, your diecast model gives you a talking point.
As far as comparison goes, diecast models come up trumps over those plastic varieties.
Other things to consider
There are other factors to keep in mind when it comes to collecting diecast models.
- Size – what scale?
- Brand – what name?
- Time Period – what years?
- Availability – where can you get it?
When you’re after quality Diecast Models and Accessories, you want to know they can be sourced from manufacturers worldwide.
It helps to know that you can have access to an extensive range of accessories for cranes and trucks that include model assembly kits. Help should always be close at hand, so look for real customer service excellence.
Names To Look Out For
When it comes to Diecast Model Trucks, Earthmoving, Construction Machinery & Equipment – look for the leading names.
The list should include: Caterpillar, Hitachi, Liebherr, Kenworth, Mack, Komatsu as well as John Deere, New Holland, Case and Bobcat, just to name a few.
It all comes down to dealing with a dealer who goes out of their way to help find you exactly what you’re looking for.
Where does a diecast model enthusiast start?
Let’s go back a step.
Passion is usually the factor that brings someone to admiring and collecting diecast models. It’s that passion that can become a fulfilling and rewarding hobby. There is nothing that can invoke the respect and admiration than having a quality model in front of you.
You can go as far as you like with your passion.
It’s not hard to see why a person becomes a serious collector on the lookout for special antique or vintage models. It is often the value and respect for a vintage model and the overall brand that is a driving force behind that growing passion.
Diecast models are often seen as a work of art – a piece that carries the history with them.
With a careful and considered approach, a growing collection can become a real investment.
