If you collect diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any scale model replica, The Diecast Magazine is the model magazine for collectors.
Classic Carlectables’ 1/18 1994 Bathurst Holden VP Commodore, as driven by Peter Brock, graces the front cover of issue 34 of The Diecast Magazine. Peter Brock collectors will welcome this quality model into their collections, as will Bathurst model collectors. AUTOart’s 1992 Bathurst Winning Nissan Skyline #1 GT-R (R32), as driven by Mark Skaife and Jim Richards, is also featured within this issue, and some controversy surrounds its release. Originally release by Biante many years ago, this model is part of an international release program by AUTOart, who opted to also include this model in their production portfolio.
The fun continues for Aussie road and race collectors with the review of Biante’s 1/18 Holden LC Torana GTR in Taormina Aqua Metallic. Race fans will embrace the pictorial from the Biante/HRT 1/18 model launch during this year’s first V8 Supercar race held in Adelaide.
Concept vehicles are always a popular choice among static model collectors, and Minichamps’ 1/18 1959 Cadillac Cyclone XP 74 Concept and Automodellos’ 1/43 1948 Norman E. Timbs’ Buick Streamliner, both produced in resin, are going to inspire intrigue in many readers. To ensure these are no fantasy, check out the article for images of each real-world vehicle.

Heavy machinery collectors are not left out, with an in-depth review of the 1/50 Ruston Bucyrus 22-RB Dragline, produced by EMD. Issue 34 of The Diecast Magazine also includes a complete 1/43 wrap-up of the ever-popular Minichamps Mullins Automotive Museum Collection.
Everyone loves exotic European supercars, and this issue of The Diecast Magazine satisfies the most discerning collectors with a full review of CMC’s beautiful 1/18 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. For 1/43 collectors Century Dragons’ resin models of the BMW M1 and BMW 850Ci are sure to whet the appetite.
If you’re looking for something different, read about the intricacies of producing the carbon-fibre effect on AUTOart’s Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, learn how to salvage your broken models in Diecast Surgery, or see what’s due for release later this year in TDM Editor Matt White’s pictorial wrap-up of the 2015 German Toy Fair.
