Which roughly paints the picture of a scale model car collector’s meet. Elbows and cars were everywhere. The event had something to do with lunch but at 3, no one was wondering about food because the hunger was reserved for the display tables. Taimur Ali had his corner reserved for ridiculously detailed 1:18 cars from ACME and Autoart. Farhan Ahmed, Aasman and Waqar Ahmad displayed their hobby grade R/C cars that cost a sweet fortune to buy and run. These are not your run-of-the-mill 400tk RC cars available at Babul Brothers Departmental Store. Like a 1:1 car, you.

Most car enthusiasts older than about eight years old have likely assembled a plastic scale model car kit at one time or another, though the hobby is long past its golden years of the 1960s. It shouldn’t surprise you that like their full-scale siblings, much of the history of plastic scale-model cars took place in and around Detroit. While California’s Revell and Chicago’s Monogram were major players in the model kit industry, they didn’t concentrate on model cars. It was companies in the...
