Miscellaneous Buildings – Shops and Storefronts
Display your Hot Wheels and 1:64 scale diecast car collection in a unique and engaging way with these beautifully crafted 1:64 scale model buildings, shops, and store fronts. Available in a range of styles and store types from banks to post offices to Fast Food outlets…there’s even a 7/11 in case you feel like a slurpy or a cheap coffee. Feeling tired from all this diorama action? Then take a nap in the Budget Hotel while your car is getting new tires from Continental and a window tint.
The current range is limited to what is shown here but we are working on a series of new buildings including a Police station and a Starbucks. We are of course always open to suggestions and continually adding more diorama building kits to the lineup.
These highly detailed shops and storefronts come flat packed in paper kits and are assembled by simply cutting along the line shown, folding along the other lines (also shown) and ensuring your cuts and folds are straight and true. Think of it like customising a Hot Wheels car – but larger and with less wheels :p
What exactly are these kits made of and how easy are they to assemble?
- Please visit the Diorama FAQ page for full installation instructions
- Alternatively, visit the installation guide at Speedstar Diorama – our suppliers and friends from Malaysia
These Paper diorama kits are made from thick (230gsm+) gloss paper and the printed images are clear and the colours vibrant. Clear instructions are provided but the process of cutting out and folding the necessary pieces is so easy you won’t need the instructions anyway.
Our advice however is to take your time and ensure that all your cuts are precise and square and that your folds are the same. We have seen some diorama kits put together so badly it looks like an earthquake has come through – effective if your diorama is located in LA or San Francisco maybe but not a good look overall.
We have tried to share pics of the various 1:64 scale diorama buildings assembled with cars included as we have received some from happy buyers but since this is a relatively new product to our shop we don’t have that many to pick from. If you haven’t picked up on this not so subtle clue then please do share your completed diorama pictures with us so we can share them with the greater customising community 🙂 (Free publicity for you of course)
SHIPPING & HANDLING INFORMATION
- Due to the weight of these garage workshop diorama kits there is a limit of 3 per order. More than this would double the cost of postage but since many other diorama building kits are lighter it would be unfair to charge postage on each individual diorama package.
- Shipping Costs are therefore set at $13.50 standard international shipping and another $6.00 for each diorama kit that is ordered – with a maximum of 3 kits per order allowed
*Note that if you pay an excessive amount of postage then I will always refund the difference after the items have been sent 🙂
