You’re never too old for diecast cars. You can call them toys, or models, or collectibles, or a hobby, but either way – we still think they’re awesome. We always sneak a cheeky look at the Hotwheels or Matchbox cars in supermarkets or whilst out and about, so here’s some of the cars we’ve purchased recently:
Hotwheels Porsche 911 GT2 (993)
I’ve always been more of a fan of the standard cars, not so much the GT Porsches, but the detail on this little GT2 is really quite remarkable. The spoiler itself isn’t a plastic afterthought, but a metal moulding, and the louvres in the rear deck and details on the bonnet are all top quality. It’s amazing to see how good 1/64 scale models are these days, and Hotwheels really do lead the way.
Hotwheels Honda Civic DOHC VTEC
I try to limit myself to just one purchase per shop… But in this case I was just so torn between the Civic and the Porsche that I found myself at the cash till with two Hotwheels, breaking my own rule. Anyway, who cares when they look this good? The Civic is an excellent little diecast model, the detail is fantastic and the ride height is just spot on. The JDM modified look really suits the Civic in any guise, and this has instantly become one of the favourites in my growing collection of diecast vehicles.
