|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 entirely certain, but it’s quite possible that it’s a combination of all of the above. For some inexplicable reason, this hobby brings joy and tranquillity, and we sincerely hope it does the same for you. DiecastSociety.com emerged out of necessity, as we felt that the internet was lacking a comprehensive resource where collectors could congregate and immerse themselves in every facet of this wonderful hobby. It’s like one-stop shopping for enthusiasts.
We understand that the hobby is in a constant state of evolution. The latest trend in materials is resin, which is gradually superseding the traditional diecast metal. Additionally, the resurgence of the 1:64 scale model is gaining momentum, with new manufacturers vying for market share almost every week.
The dedicated team here at DiecastSociety.com are not just running the website; we’re passionate collectors ourselves, some of us since the early ’90s. Over the years, we’ve witnessed numerous changes, and perhaps the most disheartening has been the ever-increasing average cost per model. Economic instability, rising material and labor costs have presented significant challenges to this remarkable hobby. However, it’s not all doom and gloom! Exciting brands like Almost Real, LCD Models and Norev are consistently delivering extraordinary and distinctive products. Our unbiased reviews and news articles are driven purely by our passion for the hobby, not by corporate interests. The team remains committed to playing its part in ensuring the enduring vitality of scale model collecting.
The DiecastSociety.com website is here for you to explore, whether you’re a casual collector or a seasoned veteran searching for that extra bit of insight. We’re determined to keep driving DiecastSociety.com to become the ultimate resource for the scale model hobby. However, we’re aware that our passion has its boundaries, and the website can only grow with the support of our core members and end-users. So, please join our forum or consider applying for Diecast Collector of the Month (DCOTM). How about sharing your passion with an in-depth review?
