Do you collect diecast model cars, model trucks, aircraft or any resin or die cast replica? Then The Diecast Magazine is definitely for you.

Welcome to Issue 29 of The Diecast Magazine. Featured on the front cover is the superb and newly tooled Classic Carlectables 1/18 scale diecast model of the Holden FC Special Sedan in Flame Red over India Ivory. This iconic Australian car has been eagerly anticipated in model car form and The Diecast Magazine provides model collectors with some Christmas cheer with a review of the pre-production sample featured in Issue 29 of The Diecast Magazine.

But that isn’t all, as Australian road and race collectors will revel in the in-depth features articles of Apex Replicas’ 1/18 scale closed-body replica of the 2013 Bathurst Ford FG Falcon in retro Greens’-Tuf livery. We also take a look at Classic Carlectables’ new closed-body die cast replica of the 2013 Holden VF Commodore V8 Supercar driven by Craig Lowndes. Biante also gets in on the action with a full review of their soon-to-be-released 1/18 scale diecast model car of the 1987 Bathurst Ford RS500 Sierra driven by Allan Moffat. And to keep the Sierras sizzling we also look at the fully-opening Apex Replicas diecast model of the 1992 Bathurst Ford Sierra RS500 driven by Dick Johnson and John Bowe.

From an international perspective, you mustn’t miss the pictorial review of the Auto e Moto d’Epoca recently held in Padova, Italy. There’s also a wonderful article titled ‘From Russia with Love’, which concentrates on a few 1/43 scale die cast replicas from behind the ‘iron curtain’; and we also take a look at EMC Models’ hand-made 1/43 scale 1961 Cadillac ‘Jaqueline’ coupe, and Minichamps’ sensuous 1/18 scale Dubonnet Hispano-Suiza H6C ‘Xenia’ produced in resin.

There’s plenty more variety in Issue 29 of The Diecast Magazine. Whether it be this issue’s review of the Hot Wheels Elite 1/18 scale 1959 Ferrari 410 Superamerica, or the combined article on the CMC 1969 Ferrari 312P #25 and the AUTOart 1/18 scale Alfa Romeo 33TT 12, or the compilation of 2013 catalogues that you may have missed, there is definitely something for everyone in this issue of The Diecast Magazine.
