1:24 is a very popular size for Die-cast toy vehicles, which are collected by children and adults. Primarily automobiles are made in this scale, with a few examples of tractor trailers and other larger equipment. Plastic automobile kits are frequently made in this scale.
1:24 is the largest of the traditional slot car sizes - and the earliest. Lionel's (USA) 1:24 electric autos of 1912-1916 became the first known commercial slot cars. In 1955, the Model Automobile Racing Association of Kalamazoo, Michigan, built the first track for electric rail-racing (the short-lived immediate predecessor to slot racing) in the US. Unlike the seminal Southport (UK) track that inspired it, the MARA table was designed for 1:24 as well as 1:32 competition. With that beginning, the US adopted 1:24...
This week on my wrist is the Omega Speedmaster “First Omega In Space,” a watch inspired by a historically important model worn in space on October 3, 1962, by U. S. astronaut Walter Schirra – an event to which the new model owes its name. The story goes that Walter Schirra decided to go watch shopping in Houston, Texas, a few months before the Mercury-Atlas 8 mission, knowing he would become the fifth man to travel to space. That part remains legend, though, as a second-generation aviator and military pilot, Schirra would most probably have heard of OMEGA and its relatively new racing chronograph. The Speedmaster, with its black dial inspired by the dashboard of Italian sports cars, had a strong look that definitely seems to have caught Schirra's eye, and he eventually set his sights on a reference CK2998 (the exact case reference remains a...

It's a car that I was very excited about and it's one of my favorite cars from the Fast and Furious franchise. What I have for you is a die-cast replica of Dom's 1970 Dodge Charger R/T from Fast and Furious 7 in 1/24 scale. This is the second largest scale of die-cast cars you can get with the largest being 1/18 scale. There is no offer currently for this car in 1/18 scale. CAR: Here we have the front view of the car. In the movie you can see the headlights behind the grill of the car. It's not a big deal and it doesn't take away from how awesome this car is. On the grill you can see the R/T logo. It's something that could be fixed, but check your car before you purchase it for the best paint job if you can. For the size of these cars Jada still manages to put in great.
