Secondly, 1/64 scale diecast cars are much cheaper than the larger diecast models, so it’s easy to get a good-sized collection going without breaking the bank! There is also a very broad selection available, ranging from movie cars to race cars to classic cars and muscle cars – there’s literally something for everyone!
