Diecast, die cast and more die-cast, diecast model cars, diecast model race cars, diecast model road cars, and more, is in The Diecast Magazine.
Welcome to Issue 21 of The Diecast Magazine. To get into the Christmas spirit for 2011, this issue is bigger and better than ever before, with 88 pages packed full of diecast cars, diecast trucks and much more. This issue really packs a punch for collectors of diecast model race cars of ATCC and Bathurst winners, beginning with the Biante 1/18 scale diecast model of the 1994 Bathurst-winning Ford EB Falcon driven by Dick Johnson and John Bowe. This highly anticipated diecast car graces the front cover, but this is only the beginning. There is also an in-depth feature about the Biante 1/18 scale diecast model of the 1987 ATCC-winning BMW M3 driven by Jim Richards. From Classic Carlectables, there is the 1/18 scale diecast model of the 1975 ATCC-winning Holden L34 Torana, the 1/18 scale diecast model replica of the 1977 Bathurst Ford XC Falcon hardtop driven by Jack Brabham and son Geoff Brabham and, for something different, there’s the first diecast model from Classic Carlectables’ open-wheeler collection, the Lola T332 that raced at Oran Park in the 1977 Australian Grand Prix.

Readers of The Diecast Magazine know our articles are not always about diecast model car reviews and this issue is no different. There is also a fascinating insight into the world of model production from a manufacturer’s point of view with a one-on-one interview with Japp Van Dijk from Neo Scale Models, an intriguing article about the world of fingercraft provided by diecast model manufacturer AutoArt, as well as an informative article about photorealism - making your diecast models look real - and a review of the movie Senna. For those of you who have not seen this movie, we suggest you do as it is a unique documentary about Ayrton Senna, who ultimately changed Formula-1 racing protocols and whose legacy lives on to this day. This and much more awaits your reading pleasure and enjoyment in Issue 14 of The Diecast Magazine.
If that is not enough, grab a cool drink and relax by the pool as you read feature articles about CMC’s 1:18 scale diecast model of a Ferrari race car transporter, Spark’s 1968 and 1975 Le Mans winners, produced in resin, the 1:43 scale Trax diecast model replica of the 1960 Holden FB station wagon and the introduction to a new manufacturer we found, based in Scotland, called Inver models, which focuses on American Austin models. For heavy machinery collectors, there is our very detail
