Issue 12 of The Diecast Magazine, the ultimate reference for die-cast model car collectors, features the latest news and reviews from around the world.
NEWS BREAK: The 2009 Christmas Stocking Competition has commenced. This year’s entry form is printed in the magazine and, for the first time ever, photocopied entries are being accepted. So rush out and get your copy now and send us your completed entry form by November 9, 2009, for your chance to win some of the great prizes on offer.
In this issue of The Diecast Magazine we look at possibly the rarest of all Australian diecast model cars, the Biante Twin Mirror Ford Falcon GTHO! The Diecast Magazine went far and wide to get answers to some of the mysterious claims that surround this model. Holden fans will not be disappointed; we take a look at the latest die cast model car releases from Classic Carlectables – the Brock Holden Commodores from the 1983 and 1985 Bathurst 1000!


Biante - Ford Falcon GTHO - Twin MirrorThe Diecast Magazine – Collectors’ Edition Efijy - Cancelled

There is a fantastic insight into the Porsche factory race transporter from Schuco! Showcased earlier this year at the Nurnberg Toyfair in Germany and combined with images of the actual vehicle, this 1/18 scale monster Mercedes-Benz truck is a must-have item for collectors!
Issue 12 of The Diecast Magazine also provides an in-depth look at the development of the Griffith 200, which is soon to be released by Automodello. Designer Raffi Minasian takes us on his journey in creating this model in 1/43 scale.
Whether you’re a seasoned collector or someone who wants to start collecting but doesn’t know where to begin, check out our “Collecting on a budget” article. This article breaks down the selection process and makes collecting on a budget simple; all you have to do is stick to your budget... and that’s the challenge!
