Hubley diecst models are famous. The company was founded in 1894 by John Hubley of Lancaster PA. Hubley started to make a line of Die-cast metal kits ranging from 1/18 to 1/22 during the 1960's. These kits are assembled using screws and well made. Kit cars such as Ford T's, Ford A's, Chevrolets and Packards to name a few, if properly assembled, are highly sought after by collectors.
