If you are a new collector or someone planning to start collecting model cars built on a different scale, here are few tips about the advantages of the 1:18 scale compared to the 1:43 scale.
Basically, the higher the number of the scale, the smaller the size so a 1:43 model car is much smaller than the 1:18 scale. Why does this matter? Well, a model car's scale is very important to many collectors as it gives a sense of order to their collections - although it is, of course, possible to collect models of brands in all different sizes! There are no hard and fast rules in the world of collecting, but if a uniform appearance is a priority, however, considering the scale should be the first thing you do. Price should probably be the second!
Why do we focus on 1:18 scale model cars?
1:43 is one of the most popular scale and is used for the majority of the miniature replica models. DNA Collectibles, however, have decided to focus on producing cars in the 1:18 range for several reasons:
Historically, the 1:43rd represented the largest part of the scale model market, but the 1:18th has grown significantly over the last few years. Indeed, the 1:18 allows to reproduce the smallest details of a real car and most of the miniature car collectors prefer a realistic replica of their dream car. The more detail the better!
This is one of the reasons why DNA Collectibles has chosen to focus on producing 1:18 models because of the amazing level of detail that it is possible to achieve. Many collectors prefer cars with numerous working details. The 1:18 scale allows an additional dimension of detailing whilst still being relatively affordable that many collectors find very appealing. The 1:18 scale is also visually attractive - the size is just right to depict the clean lines and beauty of many models without being too big to fill up a display cabinet or shelf too quickly! It's also a tactile size - the 1:18 encourages you to run your hands over the fine paintwork and admire the beauty of your DNA Collectibles model.
DNA Collectibles has historically produced models in the 1:43 scale and may explore this again in the future. The major advantage of 1:43 scale model cars is the fact that you can avoid storage and space problems. Most models are also supplied with a hard plastic transparent display box, meaning you can also avoid dust problems without having to buy extra displays for them. We currently have nine exclusive model cars in the 1:18 scale, any of which would be an asset to any prized collection. And as some of our models are produced in very limited numbers, they are highly sought after by collectors from around the world. We recommend pre-ordering new models to ensure that you don't miss out on the latest DNA Collectibles replica car.
