http://www.ebay.com/itm/1962-Chevy-Impala-SS-Convertible-in-Black-1-24-by-WCPD-No-Longer-in-production-/151010585256?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item2328eeaaa8Hi All , i have a rather silly question , i was on EBay looking for stuff and i found these 1/24 scale cars by WCPD , they have a few , but as an example they have a 62 Chevy and the detail is just totaly unreal , so i guess the question is how do they do it so perfect , even the shift knob has the shift pattern on it ,,, and the interior detail is amazing , am i missing something here and for 150 dollars how can they do it , there is the link , i hope it was ok posting the link

Most of the details like the shift knob are tampo printed by machine. Some of the model might be hand assembled but the bulk of the work would be done by machine similar to any modern day assembly line.

...or probably assembled by Chinese workers who get about 10 grains of rice for every one they put together. Kinda keeps labor costs down.

Diecasts like that are almost always assembled by workers in China. They are assembled "assembly line" fashion... that is, one person does one step (or more) on them all, another person does other step(s), etc.

Chinese laborers now get 17.5 grains per car, causing manufacturers to explore labor markets in other countries where the more acceptable cost of 8-10 is still standard. Also, some countries not in Asia will do the work for beans.
