This is an amazing model. I love the colors. Of the three FM issued, this is my favorite. Excellent photos.

@perrone1 Thanks Tony. Some day I have to pull all 1/24 Cadillacs from 1928 to 1933 and picture them together, 19 if I am not mistaken.

The models you show are very, very nice.  I would like to know what years you consider the Golden Age of Diecast?  I suspect this began before I started collecting diecast car models.

Ed, in the late 90's we started getting a large amount of new releases from The Franklin Mint and Danbury Mint. At that time, the Diecast Zone was heavily focused on the 1:24th scale auto. This is what both Mint's primarily supplied us with and what I did reviews and photos of.

We did not see the wave of 1:18ths and 1:43rds that we, happily, do today. It all pretty well dried up a few years ago but during 1997 to about 2014, when DM's last hurrah reached us with the 1935 Ford DeLuxe Coupe, we enjoyed a middle window of about 10 of those 17 years as non-stop 'Precision Diecast Model' production that I termed "The Golden Age of Diecast" and on the forums, that was how it was referred to.
