Model collectors of diecast models, die cast cars, die-cast trucks and resin model replicas worldwide, choose The Diecast Magazine as their source of information
Featuring on the front cover for the first time in Issue 32 of The Diecast Magazine is Apex Replicas and its 1/18 diecast rendition of the 1998 Bathurst-winning Ford EL Falcon, as driven by Jason Bright and Steve Richards. While other manufacturers of V8 Supercar models are moving away from minor details and opening features, this one boasts opening doors, bonnet and boot, and will be a significant addition to many Bathurst collections throughout Australia and New Zealand.
In Issue 32 you’ll also find the official entry form for the 2014 Christmas Stocking Competition. Thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes are up for grabs once again, so complete the survey questions and get the entry form back to us as soon as possible. The draw date has been extended, but it’s still just around the corner, so don’t delay. Winners’ details will be published in the March 2015 issue. Good Luck!
Also featured in Issue 32 of The Diecast Magazine are the two most recent Valiant Charger releases from Classic Carlectables. Our article ‘The Fox That Hunts With the Hounds’ features the 1/18 1972 E38 Custom Valiant Charger in Green Metallic Opal and the 1/18 Chrysler VJ Valiant Charger NSW Highway Patrol Vehicle.


Apex Replicas – 1/18 1998 Bathurst Winning Ford EL Falcon-Bright/Richards2014 Christmas Stocking Competition - Official Entry Form

If you have a weakness for European exotics, you’ll love Issue 32, as we show you CMC’s latest release of the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Speciale Touring Coupe in 1/18 scale. We try to explain this model in words, but it is the pictures that do it the most justice...enjoy! A newcomer to the stage of international model manufacturers is Hong Kong-based Century Dragon and we have an in-depth review of its recently released 1/43 Jaguar XK140 and the younger XJ220. Both are made in resin and without doubt set the stage for good things to come from this new model maker.
Want more? No problem. Issue 32 has it all, including an insightful interview with Mat Long about the relaunch of US diecast model brand GMP. Find out what’s coming now and in the future, as TDM’s Terry O’Neill asks some of the tough questions we are sure are on many lips of collectors around the world. We also take the opportunity to review the 2015 forecast release of the GMP 1970 Plymouth Road Runner in Corporate Blue in 1/18 scale.
Heavy machinery collectors are catered for with the Drake Collectables review of the 1/50 Grove RT540E in Walter Wright corporate livery. Glen Chou, president of US-based TrueScale Miniatures, takes us on part one of his Italian motoring valley tour.
