So what exactly is die-cast?
The term die-cast comes from a method called die-casting. It’s the process that produces collectible models from metal and plastic. The most common die-cast toys are scale models of automobiles, aircraft, construction equipment and trains. Pretty much anything can be made using the die-cast method.
Some people may hear the word models and think, “child’s play.” However, the world of models has not always been a child’s pursuit or exclusive to them, in fact there are many adults who are avid collectors of model sets. It’s something that many people enjoy as a hobby to this very day.
