Yat Ming (formerly called Yatming), is a die-cast car model maker, much like Matchbox. The company is based in Hong Kong.

The company started out making muscle cars, European sedans, and transport trucks from the USA in the early 1970s. In the late 1990s, however, the company moved towards making more realistic models, and moved away from its toy-maker roots.

'....For those who are not familiar with our product line, we offer quality diecast toys for school-aged children (our "Road Tough" line), as well as various licensed diecast scale models (our "Road Signature" line) of Ford, General Motors, Chrysler as well as other auto manufacturers. All of our collector's diecast are thoroughly researched for accuracy and authenticity with meticulous attention to detail. This is what our customers have come to accept and deserve. Our goal is to make sure your first Yat Ming scale model is definitely NOT your last, but one of many Yat Ming scale diecast in your collection....'

Hi there all, if possible i require a new windscreen for my 1971 V12 E Type Jaguar 1/18 model by Yat Ming. Are spare parts like the windscreen i need available..? Many thanks Jack.
►reply: Hi Jack, looked around but couldn't find a site with parts... What you can do is search for: yat ming jaguar and with any luck you can find an old one for parts.
