A flying start
We’re back, better (and earlier) than ever. 2018 brought us new categories like Slot Cars and Farm Models plus new scales and new Inductees. From the Automodello ‘65 Riviera, to our Model Car Dealer of the year, Replicarz, to our new Automotive Legend Ken Block, our Inductees have never reached as many corners of the automotive world. We’re starting 2019 with 2 more new categories, a new timeline and a new format.
Nominations are kicking off right now, running from February until August. You can nominate all year long and invite anyone else to nominate, too. Whatever scale, car or brand you’re into could have a place in the Model Car Hall of Fame.
You probably watch a lot of great stuff on social media, video sites like Youtube or, on TV. From restorations videos to unboxing to the latest Model Car news, we think it’s time to celebrate the most creative, in depth and biggest-impact model car video creators with a new category: Content Creator. We’re also excited to announce the addition of Construction Models. With unique models and scales like 1:50, construction toys are a really cool corner of the diecast world and we’re excited to see your favorites.
Where to nominate
Like last year, we have a page for each type of nomination: Cars, brands and people. When you submit a nomination, just click on the correct form to submit another. We have new fields to make sure your nomination has enough information, including a URL field and a picture uploader so you can show off the customs, models or people you’re nominating.
Our Selection Committee has grown by 2 new members: Marshall Buck, creator, owner and leader of CMA models and Bruce Meyer, automotive collector and former Chairman of the Petersen Museum. Our Selection Committee now stands at 22 members, providing expertise on our nominees that extends through every part of the automotive world.
