What gift do you buy the car-lover who has everything? Why, a desktop version of their dream car, of course!
There’s a 1:18-scale model of nearly every car in existence, with prices ranging anywhere from $15 to $500. You can find entry-level, $15 models by Maisto at your local Sam’s Club or Costco, but the higher quality models live almost exclusively on Amazon and eBay. Welly and Solido are good midrange brands (~$75), while AutoArt, GT Spirit, and LCD top the range (~$200).
Take it from a collector myself; they’re going to melt when they hold their dream car in their hand.
