Diecast Model Cars

What’s truly unique about diecast model cars is the supreme resale value. Many, many people build these models and sell them to others as collector’s editions. If you want to make money with your hobby, this is a great choice. And, it really isn’t that hard.

When you first start out with diecast model cars, start with something simple. Typically the scale 1/43 is the “collector’s scale” but for your first model, try any size. You will likely treasure this first model anyway and will not want to sell it.

As you search around for diecast model cars, constantly look for bargains. Don’t buy the first thing that fancies you. Consider it but look for a better price elsewhere. Especially if you are considering a future business in selling your models, you obviously want to buy low and sell high. Becoming a part of your hobby store community is a great way to learn where and how to shop for your models.

Even if your long term goal is a business, your short term should always be your pleasure. Pick cars you love. Don’t worry about sticking to one genre. Pick different eras, get different brands. As long as you enjoy building the diecast model you will make it perfect. And when it comes time to sell, your buyer will only be interested in a particular car, not what other cars it shared a shelf with.

Before you do any purchasing however, buy the appropriate guides. There are guides on pricing model cars and model car collector’s guides. Both of these will be beneficial. You want to be smart in your purchasing, building of your set and of course selling at the right price.

And just like with any other hobby, your local hobby store can direct you to group meetings. These can be a great way to find new friends, and possibly some future business! Networking is not just for marketers. Getting the inside information on your local model car network can make all the difference in making your hobby a business.

If you are looking to sell or purchase models make sure to consider online auction sites like eBay. This will connect you to enthusiasts around the country. Also, you might find yourself a fantastic deal. Remember that people can be finicky. What sells low today, might be high later on down the road.

Here’s a recap:

~ Start with a car you genuinely love. Don’t worry about the scale, you can do the “collector’s scale” of 1/43 down the road.

~Remember to seek out bargains. Basic rule of money, buy low and sell high.

~Use your hobby store as a resource for groups, advice and buying supplies.

~ Don’t worry about a “set” – buy each piece because you love it.

~ Purchase guides. No reason to reinvent the wheel.

~ Look for models or kits anywhere.

Start a new hobby that can be a thriving business in no time. Good luck on your journey. And remember, your local hobby store is the prime resource for anybody building or selling model cars. Be sure to serach online for diecast model cars as well, you can find just about any car you want.
