Display life-like vehicles with a high-quality diecast model from AT Models.
Our diecast models are renowned for their level of detail and accuracy. They are created using precise measurements and blueprints of actual vehicles, allowing for a highly accurate representation of the original.
They also feature a range of details, such as realistic paint schemes, working doors, hoods, trunk lids, and even miniature engines designed to replicate their real-life counterparts.
AT Model’s vast collection of diecast models comes in various scales, ranging from 1:12 to 1:64, with larger scales typically offering more detail and realism. The most common scale for diecast models is 1:18, a popular choice for collectors and enthusiasts due to its large size and high level of detail.
In addition to their incredible detail and use as collectables and display pieces, a diecast model can also be used for educational purposes. Whether that’s teaching children about different types of vehicles and their features or educating adults about the history and evolution of the automotive industry, their versatility is endless.

Our Diecast Cars Tell a Story
Diecast car collecting is way more than just taking miniature vehicles and lining them on a shelf because they ‘look nice.’ Collecting these little beauties is about bringing treasured moments back to life. A ‘nod and a wink’ to times gone by: a time when cars were simply mademuch better, lookedmoreinteresting, and hadloads of grit!
Collecting diecast cars is about applauding the outstanding engineering, and showing admiration for the designs (some of which are legendary, like thisstunning Dodge Charger, for example!).
Each one of our diecast model cars tells a story. For some people, it might be a memory of a first vehicle, like that old Cortina that your parents might have bought you, or the Mondeo your Dad handed down for your first car. For other people, it simply reflects the aspiration of a dream car that they aredeterminedto ownone day.
Think about it. Diecast car models are a direct link to our modern history. They remind us of the evolution of cars over the years, while sometimes they reflect something more personal.
When you think about diecast cars in the UK, the fact is that AT Models should be somewhere in your train of thought. We have a reputation in the UK for being RC and Diecast car enthusiasts and always have a solid range of diecast cars (and other vehicles) that are the envy of many diecast model cars shops in the UK.
Seriously. Take a look at some of the brands we stock. With leading diecast companies like AMT, Atlantis Models, or Diecast Masters among our range, you are getting the best diecast models in the UK here.
The detail that goes into these cars is nothing short of amazing, with a reflective finish that echoes the sheen ofreal automotive paint (check out the gold hue on this amazingChevy Pro Street, for example!). Every time you look under the bonnet, you see a new detail you hadn't noticed before, and the attention to detail in the interiors is a thing of sheer beauty.
The Fan Favourite: 1:18 Scale
We cater to various sizes and vehicle types, but the 1:18 scale diecast car models are our fan favourites, and easily the most popular. This particular size is ideal for display because it's neither overwhelmingly large nor disappointingly small. The trick is to appreciate the minute details, from interior designs to engine specifics, without taking up a ton of space at home, and the 1:18 is a perfect size for that.
An Educational Experience
Diecast models are not just collectibles. They're windows into the history of transportation when cars and trucks were made with more character.
Take a look around at the current crop of vehicles on our roads…. Car manufacturers all seem to be copying each other these days, don't you find? The cars of the sixties, seventies, and eighties were far more individual. They had soul and charisma.
Look at the elegant curves on this63’ Corvette, for example…. They just don't make’em like that anymore!
