Welcome all the diecast collectors!

Die casting is a process that uses metals such as zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium or lead by forcing molten metal under high pressure into mold cavities which are afterwards machined into dies. This process allows for metal to be shaped with very fine details. The most common toys and collectible items made with this method are scaled models of automobiles, planes, construction equipment, trains and military vehicles. Diecast production started off in the early 20th century. First manufacturers included companies such as Dinky Toys (Meccano) in England or Tootsietoys (Dowst Brothers) in the North America. In those begining days model cars were not meant as collectable in their own sense. They were manufactured to lend complimentary realism to model train sets. These models unit spawned a spark where a market for diecast models emerged. One of the earliest companies "Matchbox" entered the market in 1953. Their toys became so popular that "Matchbox" was widely used as a generic term for any diecast toy car, regardless of who the actual manufacturer was. Today diecast models is one of the most popular collectible items and makes up one of the most popular toys.
