1/18 is probably the best known and most popular large scale represented in diecast models. A 1/18 scale model car when boxed is the size of an average shoe box, so as you can imagine you do need plenty of room in order to amass a large collection. With space being an issue it can put a lot of collectors off as they simply do not have room to store or display them. Having said this, the scale does have a significant following with manufacturers like CMC, BBR, Minichamps, Autoart & Exoto producing high end highly detailed examples of road cars and racing cars. Other manufacturers include Bburago, Hotwheels, Road Signature, Revell, Solido and Maisto.
Another manufacturer to note is Amalgam that produce extremely high end, hand built 1/8 scale models. I have been fortunate enough to have purchased several of these models which truly are fantastic models. It has to be said that these are for a collector with a large budget and plenty of space.
As with all scale there have been many TV related models made produced over the years in 1/18 including Batman, Knight Rider, Dukes of Hazard & James Bond to name a few.
With many years’ experience, I am confident of making a fair appraisal of your collection and have proven to be very competitive when compared with auction houses and other dealers.
If you have a make or scale of model that I have not mentioned above I would still very much like to hear from you. Part of the enjoyment of this business is learning and investigating.
