One of the fun things about collecting diecast cars is that these models can vary significantly in detail. There are low-priced diecasts on the market that are a good choice for children, but that lack certain details that adults might appreciate. If you're keen on collecting diecast cars that are as realistic as possible, you'll want to look for those that cost a little more. The extra cost associated with these vehicles often means that they have a number of highly realistic details that you'll enjoy checking out.
Here are some details that you'll encounter on certain realistic diecast cars.
Things That Open
Lots of higher-end diecast cars have several different things that open, which helps to give each of these vehicles a highly realistic look. You can expect to be able to open each of the doors, as well as the hood and trunk. Not only can it be fun to open and close these parts, but you'll also get to appreciate more detail in the model. For example, when you open the hood, you'll see the intricate details of the engine. When you open a door, you'll be able to better see the vehicle's interior details.
Spinning And Turning Tires
You'll also be able to find diecast cars with tires that spin. This detailed feature will allow you to roll the car back and forth on any flat surface. Similarly, lots of diecast cars have front wheels that turn left and right, adding even more realism. You can turn the tires with your fingers, but some of these cars have tires that turn when you turn the steering wheel. For example, if you have a convertible diecast that allows you to easily access the steering wheel, you may be able to turn it and see the front tires turn.
There are some diecast cars that have working lights, which can add even more realism. You'll generally slide a small, discreet switch on the bottom of the vehicle to engage the lights, which will turn on the headlights and tail lights. While you won't want to permanently display these cars with their lights on because you'd constantly be replacing batteries, it can be fun to occasionally do so. For example, if you have several of these cars in your basement, you can turn their lights on before friends arrive. They'll be impressed with the realistic glow that they see coming from these vehicles.Share

If you're like me, you're a mom who likes to craft to release some creative energy while the kids nap or are in sports practice. I like to craft on the go so I always have something to do while I wait for my kids to get out of events. I like to crochet and knit items and sell them online to fund my crafting addiction! But I recently picked up a new hobby...candle making! I love using essential oils and natural ingredients to make delicious smelling candles that we use year-round. I have a ton of different scents for different seasons. My blog shares ideas from all my friends about different crafting topics. Read on!
