    What does diecast mean?

    • Diecast is the term used in the hobby industry referring to a model vehicle made with a metal body and some plastic parts.

    What does scale mean and how big is the model?

    • Scale actually refers to the fractional length ( 1/18 ) of the model in relation to the actual vehicle. Since all "real" vehicle lengths are different, the scale of 1/18 vehicles may also be different. 1/18 models range in lengths 9 to 12 inches approximately.

      What are the appropriate recommended ages for your models?

    • The manufacturers recommended ages are printed on their packaging - ages listed are generally from 8 years to adult. Because these models are adult collectibles, we here at Main Street Diecast Classics highly recommend that any child under the age of 8 years be strictly supervised by an adult. WARNING: Many of these models contain small parts and constitute a choking hazard - NOT for children under the age of 3 years!
