For this kind of collection there should be no age or prejudice. Having a selection of die cast models is just the same as having books that tell you about the automotive history though having the delightful experience of putting your own hands on a piece of art.
We have achieved the time of lesser peace, die cast models are always selling at stores. In times of war, iron was scarce so a lot of the resource was destined for building jets, tanks, guns and supplies for soldiers to fight at the battle fields.
This attractive selection (1/3? scale) belongs so someone that we, together with some other folks, spend hours talking about one model , cars and more and it’s so intriguing how much they know about this fascinating history of car racing. Thank you for letting me post here these pictures.
Nowadays, I’m not so sure about the resource of iron but having die cast models seem a very eco friendly and peaceful way of collecting cars. This is a much more exciting and thrilling part of history. Encouraging kids and car lovers to purchase these historical items seems much more wisely and a better purpose for the usage of our natural resources.
I have always been a great fan of 1/61 scale models and have already started my collection.
Stay tuned and think ecologically
