If you collect diecast, die cast or die-cast models in any form, The Diecast Magazine is your one-stop reference for any diecast model collector.
Issue 23 of The Diecast Magazine is back on track and is available now. Featured on the front cover of this issue is Biante’s 1/18 scale diecast model car of the 1978 ATCC winning Holden A9X SS Torana driven by Peter Brock. It has been almost 6 years since Biante released the iconic 1979 Bathurst-winning A9X, complete with Peter Brock figurine, and we are sure this model will be hot property when released.
Issue 23 would have to be one of the most diverse issues of The Diecast Magazine ever produced. Let’s start with the in-depth review of the X-Plus 1:72 scale die cast 1975 F-4B Phantom II VF-111. Then there is the 1/10 scale Ford GT40 Mk II produced by one of the handful of specialist one-of-a-kind hand-builders in the world, Spain-based Joan Prieto. The diversity continues with the in-depth review of the TWH Collectibles 1/50 scale die-cast Grove 5095 crane produced in Australian-based Membrey’s company colours, exclusively for Drake Collectables and limited to only 200 pieces.

For international racing collectors, you cannot go past the Truescale Miniatures 1/18 scale diecast model car of the #3 Porsche 936 as raced at Le Mans in 1977. Truescale Miniatures provided The Diecast Magazine an exclusive insight in this model, and despite a delay in its production, it is scheduled to become available late in the third quarter of this year. But if you’re looking to satisfy your international racing fetish immediately, Spark’s resin #8 1/18 scale model car of the Lotus 25 driven by Jim Clark to secure the 1962 World Championship will definitely be a must-have item to add to your collection.
From a European motoring perspective, there is the Mattel Hot Wheels Elite version of the 1/18 scale model car of the Ferrari 458 Italia owned by Fernando Alonso and the Kyosho 1/18 scale diecast model of two Rolls-Royce Ghosts. For something a little different from a historic angle, is the Revival International 1/20 scale 1935 Alfa Romeo P3 Tipo ‘B’ monoposto. This is a die cast metal model kit and Terry O’Neill takes us through a wrap-up of the build process.
For collectors of 1/43 scale, there is Automodello’s resin productions of the TVR M-Series, along with Oxford Diecast’s Armstrong Siddeleys in die cast metal. To top it all off, there is an introduction and insight into Tin Wizard, a specialist German white metal model hand-builder and we take a look at where the company has come from and where it is today, along with previous releases.

This and much more awaits your pleasure, and as always, Issue 23 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 packed with more than 110 listings of notable diecast model cars traded via online auction websites. “Dr” Rob Smith takes us through his repair of a broken gear stick in “Sticking a Stick Shift” in Diecast Surgery and of course there is every reader’s favourite sections, the Readers Page and Collectors Post.
