Hi there, welcome to Jasonist Diecast World! A place where you can share your thoughts and ideas on diecast cars ranging from 1/43 to 1/12 scale sizes. Diecast photography is greatly recommended!
A brief introduction of myself. I'm a diecaster from Malaysia who used to collect diecast cars mostly in 1/18 scale. I love 1/18 scale diecasts coz of the larger size, steerable wheels and openable parts such as bonnets, doors etc. Most of my diecast car collection is made up of Autoart, some are Kyosho and Minichamps, while a few from Mondo Motors, Hotworks, Hotwheels, ERTL, Maisto, Bburago and Shelby Collectibles. The types of diecast cars I collect include Formula One, JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) streetcars, Euro Continental supercars & streetcars, American muscles, Japanese Super GT cars, FIA GT cars, DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters), Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs), and World Rally Championship (WRC) cars. I like photography... and when diecasts meet photography, you can expect some indoor and outdoor diecast photoshoots from me, where I try my best in turning these diecast cars as real as possible.

There's a reason why I shift from a local diecast forum to this blog. After hanging around for a few years in LYN Malaysia, i guess it's time to begin my own diecast blog here. Having met a few authentic diecasters there such as RealCollector, Jchue73, Myke, just to name a few... However, it seems that LYN diecast thread is no longer a real diecast thread like it used to be. I can no longer find any appreciation on diecast cars and members are not willing to share their views and experiences regarding any diecast issues. As a result, many great diecasters have left the building and seek for other online diecast sources and forums.
Anyway, an end in LYN diecast thread means a new beginning in Blogspot. My intention in creating this blog is to call up authentic diecasters not only in Malaysia, but all over the world to share your diecast collections, photography and great ideas on how to maintain these marvellous masterpieces.
Your contributions are greatly appreciated and HAPPY DIECASTING!
