Whether you collect diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any die-cast model replica, in whatever scale, The Diecast Magazine is for you.
On the cover of Issue 18 of The Diecast Magazine, we feature Biante’s 1:43 scale Formula-1 Cooper-Climax T53, driven to victory by Sir Jack Brabham in the 1960 Portugal Grand Prix. This marvellous miniature is more than you may expect and our in-depth review of the pre-production model car shows what you can expect by encompassing the history and features this model possesses.
There is also a fantastic article about a custom Mack B-Model road train produced by Peter Murray. This die cast model creation started out as a simple 1:43 New-Ray replica and was transformed into a real Aussie workhorse. With plenty of extra detail added to make this model truck so realistic, many collectors will be inspired to take a second look at that model project they have been thinking about for some time.

Issue 18 also announces the winners of the Readers Choice Awards for 2010. This independent award is determined by collectors, for collectors. With so many models to consider during 2010, it came as no surprise to see the number of votes received. Now that it’s 2011, the Readers Choice Awards continue and voting is open and will end on December 31, 2011. With many fantastic die cast model releases forecast for this year, we expect to see many votes cast in order to determine the 2011 Readers Choice Award. Don’t forget, you also have the chance of being the lucky winner of a free 1:18 scale diecast model delivered directly to your door just for casting your vote. The big news is of course is the launch of the 2011 Diecast Model Expo which will be held during August 5-7, 2011 on the Gold Coast, Queensland. This event will be one to remember by bringing manufacturers, distributors, retailers and collectors together under one roof.
This issue of The Diecast Magazine includes a ticket order form for you to place your ticket order for the event as well as the three Expo Events (meal events) that will also be held during the expo. Secure your tickets early to avoid disappointment and be able to purchase the exclusive expo event models that will be made available to attendees. While the details of driver attendances and the exclusive models that will be available are still being finalised, you can expect sensational model replicas from such greats as Beechey, Brock , Geoghegan and Johnson. Visit www.diecastmodelexpo.com.au for more details and we look forward to seeing you there in August.
