Issue 8 of The Diecast Magazine features a variety of scaled die cast models, including planes, race cars, road cars, motorbikes and much more.
Issue 8 covers Biante’s release of the Peter Brock Austin 7 as the “Birth of a Legend” main feature article. Also included in this article is the Biante release of the 1984 Bathurst-winning VK Holden Commodore, driven by Peter Brock, in 1:18 scale. The article also encompasses some rare family images of the Brock family enjoying the fun the Austin 7 provided and is a fantastic review about the one and only “Brock 01”.
Also featured is a range of motorbikes from Minichamps’ classic motorbike series. If you’re passionate about motorbikes and just as passionate about collecting them in scaled model form, you will love this feature. Spanning seven pages, the article covers 14 different die-cast models produced within the range from Minichamps.

Also in Issue 8 of The Diecast Magazine is the updated “Diecast Buyer’s Guide”. The Diecast Magazine encourages you, the reader, to be involved in this by letting us know what you would like to see included in the list in the future. As well in Issue 8 is the regular inclusion of the Readers’ Page and it is followed by The Collectors’ Post, which again gave away more models to a lucky collector. If you would like a chance to win a model in the future, do not hesitate: get pen to paper and send us a few pictures to be in with a chance to win a model in the next issue.
Talking about winning models, Issue 8 of The Diecast Magazine also sees the start of The 2008 Christmas Stocking Competition. With over $4000 worth of scaled die cast models spread over four prizes up for grabs, it would almost be ridiculous not to enter, so don’t delay. You can find this year’s entry form in the magazine. Simply fill it in and return it completed via the details quoted on the entry form to be in the draw.
As always, Shop Talk informs you about a selection of new and upcoming collectable releases and, combined with all of the editorial features contained within Issue 8 of The Diecast Magazine, it makes this issue another must have for any collector serious about collecting diecast models.
