About Model Citizen | Premium-Grade Scale Model Cars

Welcome to Model Citizen...the Next Big Thing in Little Cars.

The Model Citizen philosophy is simple: we believe there is no better visual expression for an individual's passion for the automobile than a really great scale model car, one that captures every detail and nuance of the real thing.

We are committed to helping car enthusiasts communicate their passion to the world by curating a selection of only the finest precision-built scale model cars available...cars you can be proud to display in any home or work setting. And we'll do it at industry-leading prices.


The founder: Patrick Strong

I founded Model Citizen  in 2015 with one single purpose: to be the absolute best place on the Web to find premium-quality diecast and resincast model cars. I have over thirty years experience buying, selling and collecting top-shelf models, and I'm confident that whatever your particular interest in the motoring world, we can help you find the perfect automotive collectible.


What is your return policy?

Model Citizen prides itself on offering a flawless, desirable product, but we understand that sometimes a customer may not be 100% satisfied. To that end, we offer a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee on any item that is returned due to damage or defect, less return shipping charges. All other returned items are subject to a 15% restocking fee.

From what location do your models ship?

All of our model cars are held in inventory in our office in El Segundo, California, USA, and ship from this same location. We prefer to hold items in inventory rather than drop-ship, as we feel it offers us an extra level of quality control over the products that we sell.

What shipping options are available?

Our merchandise ships using either USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground, depending on the weight of the order. International orders, where available, ship using USPS International First Class or Priority Mail. Please contact us with any specific shipping inquiries, such as territories not covered by current shipping options, discounted shipping for multiple items, or expedited shipping services.

How much is shipping, anyway?

If you're in the lower 48 United States, it's free. That's right, FREE. For Alaska, Hawaii, and the rest of the world, prices vary depending on location, but we try to offer the lowest international shipping rates possible.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
