If you are passionate about motoring and looking for a die cast model of your favourite car, The Diecast Magazine is for you.
Issue 17 of The Diecast Magazine is packed with diecast model cars, diecast model vehicles, and die-cast replicas catering for diecast model collectors in a variety of scales. Featured in this issue is Classic Carlectables’ diecast model of the Brut 33 B52 Ford XB Falcon hardtop as raced in the 1974 Bathurst race and driven by Allan Moffat. The Diecast Magazine predicts that this die-cast model, which was produced in limited numbers, will become hot property in the not-too-distant future. We also feature the die-cast replica of the #1 Holden LH L34 4-door Torana driven by Peter Brock in the same race, and while the car did not finish, this die cast model is sure to be on almost every Australian collector’s wish list for Christmas.
In this issue we also announce the five happy winners of the 2010 Christmas Stocking Competition. To those who entered and didn’t win, we thank you very much for being involved and wish you luck in 2011. The ‘2010 Readers Choice Awards’ draws to a close and finishes on December 31, 2010, so get your vote in now; simply by entering your vote, you could be a lucky winner of a free 1:18 scale diecast model car delivered direct to your door. So, what are you waiting for? Stayed tuned in 2011, as Issue 18 of The Diecast Magazine will announce the 2010 Reader’s Choice diecast model of the year.

For something a little different we take you on a trip around the world and introduce some of the friends The Diecast Magazine has made over the past 12 months and the events they have held. Whether it is the ‘Italian Connection’ article from Novegro Italy, the 2010 Super Diecast Convention held in Las Vegas earlier this year, or the 1:1 launch of the Maserati Gran Cabrio at the Italian embassy in Thailand that incorporated a display of Maserati die-cast model cars from Car Model Club Thailand, we are sure you will enjoy the insights into how other collectors around the world celebrate their love and passion for motoring by collecting die cast models.
Maintaining the international feel and with a focus on 1:43 scale die cast models, Issue 17 of The Diecast Magazine also takes a look at some of the releases from Oxford Diecast, M4 Models, as well as the presidential limousine releases from Minichamps and Luxury diecast from earlier this year.
