Diecast Aircraft and Spacecraft
Collectors and aviation enthusiasts will love diecast aircrafts and spacecraft. Whether you choose new models or vintage pieces, it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
Diecast models are made from heating metal and shaping it in a mould to make a replica piece. Models are available in wood and plastic but diecast modelling is always a favourite.
The diecast aviation world is constantly evolving so keep an eye out for new models. Look out for the popular brands as well as military aircraft. A popular scale to look for is 1:72 and these can be easily displayed on their own stand.
Historians will love military aircraft models, including casts from both World Wars. Check out fighter jets and bombers as well as transport aircraft.
Take your time to learn all about the aircraft by buying a kit that you can make yourself. All you need is the pieces, a few tools and your paintbrush.
Those who aren’t crafty can buy models and casts that are already put together with meticulous attention to detail and quality. Either way, they are great for displaying once finished. Keep yours in the best condition by keeping in a glass display case to minimise dust. Dust, polish and wax them with specialist casting kits to make them look their best.
Those who love space should check out diecast spacecraft, whether you choose new, second-hand or pristine models that are still in their original packaging. Spacecraft models are not as common as aircraft models but there are still plenty out there.
Choose NASA style figures or fictional spacecraft from favourite films and fiction. Spacecraft models are great for both collectors and junior astronaut wannabes. Play for hours with Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle from Star Wars or re-enact the launching of the Apollo 15.
