Whether you collect die cast, die-cast, diecast models, even resin and white metal models, The Diecast Magazine is a one-stop reference for model collectors.
Issue 26 of The Diecast Magazine has the Classic Carlectables retro-themed Holden VE Series II Commodore in 50th anniversary livery, as raced at the 2012 Bathurst enduro. This 1/18 scale die cast model race car, piloted by Craig Lowndes and Warren Luff, is fantastic, and will undoubtedly become a popular inclusion within many diecast model car collections.
Issue 26 keeps the motor sporting theme alive with an in-depth article about the Trax 1/24 scale diecast model of the Holden 48/215 as entered in the 1953 Monte Carlo Rally and, more recently, in replicated form during the 2013 Monte Carlo Rally by Craig Lowndes, Gary Poole and Richard Davison. Open-wheeler enthusiasts will enjoy the review of the Classic Carlectables 1/18 scale Lola T332 in which Aussie Vern Schuppan won the Oran Park round of the 1976 Rothmans Championship. And from abroad, you can’t ignore the 1/18 scale die cast model car of the 1972 Indianapolis 500 Hurst/Oldsmobile Pace Car with Linda Vaughn figurine produced by ACME Diecast.

For collectors and enthusiasts of European Exotics, feast your eyes on the premium die cast model replica of the 1/18 scale 1956 Maserati 300S model car produced by CMC, and the AUTOart 1/18 scale Lamborghini Aventador in Arancio Argos colour. Collectors of US car models in all scales are well catered for with articles about Brooklin Models’ 1/43 scale 1937 Pontiac Deluxe Six four-door Touring Sedan, M2 Machines’ 1/24 scale 1957 Chevy 210 Hardtop, and the Hot Wheels Elite 1/43 and 1/18 scale replicas of K.I.T.T. from the TV series Knight Rider.
For something different we have more editorial articles about the YCC Models 1/50 scale Liebherr LG1550SL/SL3H Mobile Crane with Derrick Mast System, and Dragon Models’ 1/72 scale Apollo 12 Lunar Landing diorama assortment and 1/400 scale Space Shuttle Endeavour.
Issue 26 also features a one-on-one interview with TrueScale Miniatures President, Mr. Glen Chou. If that isn’t enough, check out the pictorial review of the 2013 Australian Toy Fair held in Melbourne in March. But that’s still not all! We have many more surprises inside this issue.
