But they are diecast!! Just not diecast metal.
Diecasting is the process by which a material (metal or plastic) is injected into a mold and 'cast' in a die into a shape. Metal or plastic are the materials that are 'diecast'. Diecasting is used frequently on this forum to refer to diecast metal exclusively, but that is not accurate.

I have this model too and it is excellent. I agree that it is widely overlooked as an accurate scale model of the original. Metal or plastic, this is a great model.
