1:18 Scale Diecast Reviews

 

 

When I started collecting 1:18 diecast models, sometimes it was difficult deciding which ones to purchase, especially when they were bought sight-unseen from an online hobby shop or ebay. I often relied on commentary, feedback, and even formal reviews from other collectors before buying. It's not always the case that higher cost = higher quality, and sometimes an inexpensive model can be surprisingly well done. By reading the comments of others, I was able to more quickly figure out which models were best avoided, and which were the "hidden gems".

As such, one of the reasons I put together this site was to help other beginners (and non-beginners) with similar purchases. However, I also wanted to review cars as I saw them. There have been many times when a reviewer was very critical of a car that I subsequently liked very much, or, conversely, was overly positive about a model which turned out to be very disappointing. In other words, sometimes beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And details that are important to me might be missed by another reviewer. With all of that in mind, here goes....

(This is a new site, so it will take some time to review all of these models. If there's no link for that model, check back soon.)
