mDiecast needs your helpJul 28, 2011
The value of information is priceless, especially when it pertains to your scale model collection. Wouldn’t it be nice to have access to complete model lists by a manufacturer, model type or scale?
In a perfect world, information about each model produced should be easily accessible on the manufacturer’s website. Unfortunately, some manufacturers don’t have any web presence at all, while others don’t have up to date information or don’t bother to include all the models such as limited edition, promo, or models made for a car manufacturer (dealer editions).
Over 8 years ago we started to catalog diecast models and have been updating and adding new models to our catalog ever since. We currently have over 24,500 models from almost 300 manufacturers around the world. Models in our catalog vary from handmade models to mass produced models from world renown diecast manufacturers.
As collectors ourselves, we know that value of this information is priceless, but our catalog is not nearly complete, and we need your help! We would like to tap into your model expertise to refine and expand our catalog by adding missing models, editing incorrect or outdated data, or adding new info to the models that are in the database, such as pictures, bar codes, or any other tid bits of knowledge that will be useful to collectors such as yourself.
ADDING NEW MODELS
Adding new models to the catalog is easy. After you are logged in, go to ‘My Account’ page and click ‘Add new model to the catalog’, fill out model’s information and click ‘Submit’. That’s it. (see screenshots below)
EDITING EXISTING MODELS
Adding pictures or editing information about a model in the catalog is just as easy. Find the model in our catalog by searching for it by catalog number or model name and select ‘Add your own picture’ or ‘Edit information about this model’ from the model’s information page.
KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR COLLECTION AND WISH LIST
Keeping track of your collection now got easier. Each model from our catalog can be added to your virtual collection list and wish list that you can access from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. You can even include purchase information that is only accessible to you. You can say goodbye to crunched pieces of paper that you made notes on.
