Diecast model cars, die cast model trucks. If you collect die-cast replicas, The Diecast Magazine is the diecast model magazine for diecast model collectors.

With that said, I also would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As pictured on the front cover, we take you to a different place with the in-depth editorial feature of the new Drake Collectables 1:50 scale Kenworth K200 Prime Mover with Drake swingwing trailer. This is a sensational model and anyone interested in superbly finished and highly detailed models is going to want to check out the first Aussie truck of its kind to grace us in scale replication.
Issue 25 also features the Classic Carlectables 1974 Bathurst Winning Ford XA Falcon GT hardtop and the 1975 Bathurst Winning Holden L34 Torana. Whether you’re Ford or Holden biased, you’re definitely going to be a happy collector when these two brilliant models are released early in 2013.

There is a lot to read about in this issue of The Diecast Magazine, starting with a wealth of editorial focusing on a number of international manufacturers, such as Ertl Collectables, Hot Wheels Elite, Maisto, Minichamps, Sun Star, TWH Collectibles and more. There is also a special article announcing the release of The Diecast Magazine’s release of the exclusive TDM-02 “Back in Black” Ford EB Falcon, our second signature release.
As always, we mix up this issue with something different, such as the introduction of Silas Models based in Europe, or the article about Inver Models titled “Small American Cars from Scotland”. But that’s not all! We have plenty more surprises inside this issue.
