About Model Citizen | Premium-Grade Scale Model Cars



You're an enthusiast. You love cars in your marrow. You're fanatical about Porsche and JDM and the muscle kings of Woodward Avenue. You go to Monterey and Amelia and Indy. You read Octane and Road and Track and Sports Car Market cover-to-cover, and the Smoking Tire Podcast is appointment listening for you. You have a favorite F1 driver and a favorite IMSA team, though you're more intrigued by the beauty and the bravery of the racing of yesteryear.

You learned your appreciation for the automobile as a kid, pushing diecast cars across the living room carpet. They shaped your taste, and inspired your drive to acquire and admire. And now that you're all grown up, you might have a really cool full-sized car (or two, or twenty) but that little kid inside you still loves model cars. 


Model Citizen was founded in 2015 with one single purpose: to help passionate car enthusiasts build the car collections of their dreams...in scale.

Scale model cars are an important storytelling device. They give us a visual representation of what matters to us as car enthusiastsModel Citizen seeks to educate and inform about the stories behind the models, both to help new enthusiasts grow in their appreciation, and to build a greater sense of community among veterans in the automotive hobby. 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 for sale anywhere...cars you can be proud to display in any home or work setting. At Model Citizen, you'll find only the most compelling cars for sophisticated enthusiasts...we won't make you wade through endless pages of low-quality toys to find the treasure you're looking for. Here, it's ALL treasure.



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.
