Do you collect scale diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any kind of die-cast model? So do we at The Diecast Magazine.
Classic Carlectables’ diecast model, forecast for an October release, of a Tartan Turquoise EH Holden special appears on the front cover of Issue 19 of The Diecast Magazine. This being the second EH Holden special diecast model car released by Classic Carlectables is sure to be just as popular as the first release almost 12 months ago, in Salt Bush Green.
In the Diecast Surgery section, our resident diecast doctor, “Dr” Rob Smith, shares with us a special request from a diecast collector in New Zealand who owns a special Valiant Charger and made the request to “Dr” Rob for a scale model of the same. As always “Dr” Rob takes us through the steps required to make a true one-of-a-kind in the story titled “The Doctor by Request”.
The custom theme continues with dedicated diecast collector Colin Siggins taking us through a few “Wild and Creative” custom diecast model Holdens he has produced recently. These unique custom diecast models show that with a little imagination, patience and skill, you can create whatever you want and Colin has done just that by creating two rare diecast FJ Holden’s and one sizzling hot Holden LJ Torana model car. If this doesn’t get your creative juices flowing and the desire to have a go at creating your own special one-of-a-kind diecast model, we don’t know what will.


Classic Carlectables - 1/18 EH Holden Special SedanTop Gear – 1/24 1994 Honda NSR 500 – Michael Doohan

From an international perspective, Dick Browne takes us on a tour of the 2011 Amelia Island Concours recently held in Florida. This wonderful insight into a very well known event in the US also combines some of the rare 1:43 model cars produced of some of the vehicle on show at the event. Bringing it back home, but from a two-wheeled point of view, is Top Gear’s Legends Series release of a 1:24 Michael Doohan 1994 Honda NSR 500 motorbike. Available now in two collectable versions, this motorbike model is sure to find a home in many motorbike collections. Also the 2011 Readers Choice Awards continues and don’t forget, by casting your vote, you also have the chance of being the lucky winner of a free 1:18 scale diecast model delivered directly to your door. So send us your entry to be the next issue’s lucky winner and contribute to what will be The Diecast Magazine’s 2011 Readers Choice Award model.
