If you collect die-cast cars, die cast vehicles or any diecast models at all, The Diecast Magazine’s a ‘must have’ for any diecast collector.
Issue 16 of The Diecast Magazine contains the 2010 Christmas Stocking Competition entry form. There are five prizes up for grabs in this year’s competition, more than ever before, giving you more chances to win. We also introduce the ‘Readers Choice Award’ where collectors from Australia and New Zealand can cast their vote as to what is the best model release in 2010. With prizes on offer within each issue, now and in the future, The Diecast Magazine kicks off this new section and we look forward to receiving your votes by December 31st, 2010. All votes will be compiled and The Diecast Magazine ‘Readers Choice Award’ will be announced in Issue 18 in March 2011. Being an ongoing project, the 2011 Readers Choice Award campaign would have already begun and will continue throughout each and every year.


Classic Carlectables 1982 Bathurst Winner – Peter BrockBiante Group A Holden VK Commodores – ETCC

Issue 16 features Classic Carlectables’ diecast model car of the 1982 Bathurst-winning VH Commodore as driven by Peter Brock. We also take a look at Classic Carlectables’ die-cast model EH Holden Special sedan, which has proven exceptionally popular with collectors. Considering the wait, this really comes as no surprise and it has already been trading for considerably more than its initial release as we release Issue 16 of The Diecast Magazine. Our feature of Biante’s diecast models of the 1986 Holden VK Commodores from the European Touring Car Championships indentifies the unique and specific differences between the upcoming release of the Brock/Moffat version and the forecast March 2011 release of the Grice Bailey example. Same cars, but so different in many ways and this article shows the effort Biante has gone to in providing the most accurate diecast replicas they can of two relatively unknown races in the Australian racing scene.
For 1/43 scale collectors, Issue 16’s articles about Models 56’s new releases will open your eyes to a new world of resin model cars from this relatively new manufacturer. From the Australian Super Sedan series of the early ’70s, Jim Richards’ Sidchrome Mustang and the Bryan Thomson VW fastback have been replicated and we take them through their paces and show you what you look can forward when they are released in the very near future.

From something a little different and for the absolute detail purist, the article featuring 1:10 scale hand-build specialist Joan Prieto will leave you in awe of his talented ‘one-of-a-kind’ model car craftsmanship.
As always, Shop Talk is full of new and upcoming releases of diecast models you may know and others you won’t. What’s Hot Online is just as big as last issue and there are more Readers Page and Collectors Post inclusions than ever before.
If you are looking for that special die-cast model, the advertisers directory is definitely your tool to track it down. But if you haven’t subscribed yet, subscribe today. See page 80 of the magazine or call (07) 3630 1530.

If you do, you will be in with a chance to WIN a diecast model for free! The question is: why wouldn’t you?
Issue 16 of The Diecast Magazine is another brilliant issue that has the diecast X factor you want from a diecast collector magazine. TDM is available now in selected newsagencies as well as all good diecast model outlets throughout Australia and New Zealand.
