Looking for detail in your diecast models? The Diecast Magazine has plenty of diecast, die cast and more die-cast, featured in detail, every issue.
Issue 20 of The Diecast Magazine contains plenty of in-depth reviews and professional photography. Whether it’s the featured diecast model race cars of Biante’s 1985 Bathurst #8 Jaguar XJ-S driven by Tom Walkinshaw and Win Percy, or its die cast big brother, the race-winning #10 driven by John Goss and Armin Hahne, this issue has something for everyone. We also look at the Classic Carlectables diecast replica of the Holden VC Commodore driven to victory by Peter Brock at Bathurst in 1980. If you want more diecast models from Bathurst, check out our review of the Classic Carlectables 1/18 scale Craig Lowndes and Mark Skaife 2010 Bathurst-winning Holden VE Commodore. Released just as we went to print, the 5000 examples of this model produced reinforce the demand among diecast model collectors for those who conquer the mountain.
But that’s not all. We also have articles about the Biante 2010 Holden HSV 20th Anniversary Maloo ute, the 1/43 scale Trax “50th Anniversary” Holden EK Premier Sedan and an introduction to Australian white metal specialist Big River Models and its recently released 1/43 scale Armstrong Siddeley.

There is also a seven-page post-event wrap-up of the 2011 Diecast Model Expo.
