This page contains built vehicle models featuring plastic model kits and toys in addition to assorted diecast models  . All models are in the 1/24th-1/25th scale.

I also BUY single model kits or whole collections, so if you've got some to sell or trade, let me know !!

MODELS FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION 

(Several people have offered to sell me some of the models they've noticed are missing from my line-up. I should mention that I do in fact, have the cars to fill all the various holes, I just haven't had a chance to build them all yet. I'm working on that, in addition to my "honey-do" list, along with ordering the appliance parts I need to fix the frig, shelves for the garage, paint the back door, etc., etc., etc. Ha!

Also, these cars are not for sale.)

Promotional models have been popular since the late 1940s. They are used largely to promote the real cars they represent. They are commonly pre-painted and pre-assembled versions of a regular model kit. The Turbine Buick chassis and the Rambler Unit body models pictured here were a departure from the norm, however. The plaster model in the center was an early Edsel design study done at Ford Motor Co. in the mid-1950s.
