Are you a diecast collector of diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any die-cast vehicle? If so, The Diecast Magazine’s for you!
Issue 22 of The Diecast Magazine is now available and is better than ever before. The Diecast Magazine has gone through a redesign and has been freshened up for the future and we are sure you are going to love the new look and feel. But do not fear, while there have been changes, The Diecast Magazine still has all of the regular sections every diecast collector has come to love.
Issue 22 features a Classic Carlectables diecast model of the 1/18 scale 1974 ATTC winning Holden XU-1 LJ Torana driven by Peter Brock on the front cover. For lovers of Australian racer cars, Issue 22 also includes an in-depth review of the diecast model car produced by Classic Carlectables in 1/18 scale of the 2011 Townsville 400 “Camo” liveried Holden VEII Commodore driven by Craig Lowndes.
But that is just the start. There is a pictorial wrap-up of the 2012 International Toy Fair held in Germany earlier this year, which captures many of the fantastic diecast model cars we can expect to be released later this year. Also, the results of the 2011 Readers Choice Awards are reviewed and the results and models are announced within Issue 22 of The Diecast Magazine.

We also take a road test of the resin replica produced, 1/43 scale Trax Select Series 1958 Ford Customline Star Model Trax. For movie themed collectors there is the 1/18 scale diecast model of the Hot Wheels Elite Ghostbusters ECTO-1. Continuing the movie theme, but on a different tangent, we have a special article by Jason Campbell titled “Star Wars - The Motoring Racing Wars” which lists a long list of diecast model cars featuring Star Wars liveries as part of their race day graphics. To cap off the visual entertainment element of Issue 22 of The Diecast Magazine, there is AUTOart’s 1/18 scale Gran Turismo 5 Stealth Model, which many gaming aficionados would already be familiar with in digital form, but now comes to life for diecast collectors.
Issue 22 of The Diecast Magazine also contains feature articles of the 1/18 scale diecast model car produced by Maisto “Number 1” Porsche being the birth of the 356 variant in the legendary marque. Also featured is the Automodello resin replica of the 1/24 scale Phantom Corsair, a stunning vehicle way ahead of its time, the Minichamps 1/18 scale diecast model Mercedes-Benz 6600 DL fire truck, an AUTOart 1/18 scale Aston Martin DB5 in silver as well as the 1/43 scale Oxford Diecast model car of King George V Royal Daimler.

This and much more awaits your pleasure, and as always, Issue 22 of The Diecast Magazine is packed with news and new-release diecast model release information from a variety of model manufacturers around the world in the Shop Talk section. “What’s Hot Online” is crammed full with more than 100 listings of notable diecast model cars traded via online auction websites and “Dr” Rob Smith takes us through his creation of Targa 1, inspired by Eric Bana’s film “Love the Beast” and the annual Targa Tasmania.
