rebuilding customize your diecast cars

 

 

There have always been model kits that are big scale. While I doubt they are as popular as small kits, say 1/25,1/35,or even 1/48, or so, they do offer more room for detailing. This also makes any modifications you do magnified, easier to see and appeciate.

With a growing population of modelers that are older (and our eyesite isn't what it used to be), larger kits are becoming more popular than ever before.

It makes it easier for us to actually see what we're building, without using tweezers and a magnifying glass to add that tiniest of model parts to the build.

Airfix, Revell, AMT, MPC, Round2, Lindberg, all have been bringing out larger kits, wherether it's a new tool (Revell's GT500 Mustang) or something older (such as the Lindberg Hot Rods), there's a kit for every kind of builder and subject.

Tamiya is a big producer of large scale kits and has been for many years. Most of them in 1/12 scale. Some can be expensive, but the level of detail is amazing.

Then there are some odd balls, older kits, from Nachino let's say, that are rare and hard to find. But different none the less. There are also some 1/16 military kits,such as tanks, which are the popular and best known ones. Though the Trumpeter MRAP is bursting on the scene, as well as some WWII MB Jeeps from Dragon, which are 1/6 scale (big enough to hold the old 1970's style GI Joe figures).

Big scale models range from cars, trucks, hot rods, tanks, motorcycles, engines, even aircraft. Do they cost a little more than the smaller kits? Of course. But you tend to get a lot of bang for the buck.

You also get some subjects that may never be made in a smaller scale kit. And let's face it, the big scale models really catch the eyes of everyone, they're quite impressive on the model table or your model shelf at home. Talk about the WOW factor!

Probably the biggest draw back is, where do you display the large scale model once you've assembled it?

I also feel that large scale kits, especially cars, give you that "big" look to them. Meaning, they look so much more like the real thing because of their size. Again, they make an impressive statement, even to folks who may not be a modeler, but can appreciate the easy to see details and hard work you have into them.

Big scale models are usually 1/12 (a scale that's also popular with motorcycle models, and some figure kits), 1/16 (some figure kits are this scale too), 1/8 (a really large scale, and popular with figures), 1/18 (the same as the popular diecast scale), and the huge 1/6 scale (made more common now because they work well with 12 inch figures). There are a few other odd ball scales for models, but these are the most common when referring to "Big Scale".

Now that Pocher is back, expect to see even more detailed kits in their 1/8 scale range. Recently their Lamborghini series has done well, but they're expanding into motorcycles, and more large scale kits are coming. Older Pocher kits are very rare now, and expensive. In the 1990s the kits, like their Mercedes and FIAT racer, ran around $ 500.00 - and that was back then! Now they are more, but of course, you're paying for the amazing detail and parts that are included to build a museum quality example of a model subject.

The big scale kits aren't for everyone, but they sure are fun to build!

 

 

Big scale kits for those who like to build large models.

Some of your favorite scales, 1:12, 1:8, 1:16, 1:6 and more. Make sure you have a lot of room to display these kits! There's a whole lot of plastic in these boxes.
