TOP 8 BRANDS FOR 1/24 SCALE DIECAST CARS

Which are the best brands of 1/24 scale diecast cars? If you're looking to buy 1/24 scale diecast cars, you've probably noticed that there are a lot of different brands out there, and it can be confusing! This article is intended to give you some basic information on the top brands of 1/24 scale diecast model cars, so that you can make an informed decision and know where to look to find the diecast cars that are right for you.

1/24 scale is a very popular scale for diecast collectors for a couple of reasons. First of all, 1/24 scale cars are large enough that they can be quite realistic, with much more detail than the smaller scales. At the same time, 1/24 scale diecast vehicles are still much more affordable than larger diecast cars. Finally, it's worth noting that, because they don't have intricate details, 1/24 cars can still be suitable for children, which is generally not the case for larger cars.

Our most popular brand, Jada Toys specializes in 1/24 scale diecast muscle cars and movie cars, but also makes an attractive line of classic vehicles. If you're looking for movie cars, Jada is one of the top brands -- definitely the #1 brand for Fast & Furious fans, also offering a variety of Batmobiles and other cars from movies such as Cars, Transformers & Jurassic World. Jada diecast cars tend to be heavier and more robust than other 1/24 cars, as they are made of heavier metal, they are slightly larger and they have large, eye-catching rims and wheels. They might cost $1-2 more than other 1/24 cars because of the extra material.
