What Are Die-Cast Models?
Die-cast models refer to toy models that are produced under die casting methods. They are excellent collectable toys and can be passed on for generations. Many of these models are produced as limited edition products. Once a specific model has sold out, it is never produced again. This makes for rare and unique collectable models that grow in value as they age.
Die-cast car models became popular in the 1950s. They were often given as gifts for special occasions. Model sets include common cars, luxury vehicles, sports cars, various trucks, and motorcycles. New varieties include artfully scaled and technically designed cranes, construction trucks, military models, and mining models.
Die-cast car models come in varied scales:
- The largest die-cast models are on the 1:12 scale and usually average 37 cm in length. Models at this scale are targeted at adult collectors.
- The most popular scales used in the Australian manufacture of die-cast models are 1:24.
- The choice scale of Franklin Mint 1:43 is the most popularly chosen scale for all die-cast model cars worldwide, together with the 1:76 which is compatible with H0 model trains.
