|About DS • DiecastSociety.com|
Hello and welcome to DiecastSociety.com. Is it a passion? Is it an addiction? Is it a pastime? We’re not really sure, but it might just be a combination of all of the above. For some reason, this hobby brings happiness and calm, and we hope it does the same for you! DiecastSociety.com grew out of necessity since, in our opinion, the Internet was lacking a complete resource where collectors could come and enjoy all aspects of this great hobby. One-stop shopping, if you will.
We understand the hobby is continually evolving; the latest trend in materials is resin, and it is pulling away from the tried and tested methods of diecast metal. Also, the resurrection of the 1:64 scale model is in full force today. Seems a new manufacturer is competing for market share weekly…
The humble team here at DiecastSociety.com are avid collectors too, some since the early ’90s. We’ve seen many changes over the years, the worst being the ever-climbing average cost per model. Economic unrest, escalating costs in materials and labour have placed this magnificent hobby is dire straits. It isn’t all glum! Exciting brands such as Almost Real, DNA Collectibles and Norev are shipping some awesome and unique products. Our unbias reviews and news articles are only funded by passion and not the almighty corporate dollar. The team will continue doing their part to ensure the appetite of scale model collecting lives on.
The DiecastSociety.com website is yours to discover, be it as a casual collector or seasoned veteran just looking for that tiny bit more. The team will continue to drive DiecastSociety.com to become the definitive resource for the scale model hobby, but we understand this passion has its limitations and the website can only grow based on our core members and end-users. Please join our forum or maybe submit your application for Diecast Collector of the Month (DCOTM)? How about you share your passion with an in-depth review?
