Cheaper Diecast Models

Postby ColeTheDemolisher on Fri 03 Mar 2017, 7:03 am

I'm looking to "fill a few shelves" with die-cast Planes but Some of the prices are ridiculous, i know you get what you pay for but I'm not looking for 1/1 crisp detail.
Can anyone recommend a Website to get decent models from?

Thanks in advance.

If you are looking for a specific, older model then ebay is probably best. Otherwise I tend to use jumblies or flying tigers. You can also get some real bargins at airshows. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your suggestions guys. :smile:
I'm guessing there's no haven-website that sell them all for £1.99 then. :biggrin: :biggrin:

I use a variety of places such as Amazon and E-Bay, but also :-

And also visit the Barry Potter toyfairs held at Sandown Park Racecourse. Was there yesterday and got a 1:48th Armour Collection Dauntless for £50 which was a bargain :-)

Italeri did a nice range of 1/100 scale diecast planes, with pretty decent quality. You can pick them up for less than a fiver at airshows but tend to be a fair bit more online as they are reasonably rare now. Have a google of italeri 1/100 diecast aircraft and see if anything takes your fancy.
