Whatever scale models you collect. Whether they are diecast, die cast or die-cast, even scaled resin model replicas, The Diecast Magazine has you covered.
Gracing the cover of issue 35 of The Diecast Magazine is the beauty and brilliance of Drake Collectibles’ latest addition to its ever-growing lineup of die cast Kenworth Ten Wheel Wonders. Drake Collectibles is certainly a leader in its field, and Aussie diecast model truck collectors wouldn’t be happier with the recently released 1/50 Kenworth C509 in Betts Bower corporate livery.
Aussie race enthusiasts from both camps are catered for in issue 35 of The Diecast Magazine, and the detail found within Classic Carlectables’ 1/18 1981 Sandown Winning Holden VC Commodore trumps Biante’s 2013 Touring Car Masters Winning Ford Falcon Sprint as driven by Jim Richards. But then again, at almost $100 the difference in price, what else could you expect? One thing is for sure, it is certainly a better feeling owning one of these Aussie diecast model race cars, than just wishing you did.
We proudly give the last blast of our trumpet (or at least until the next release) of Australian Model Replicas, and the first scheduled release due out in September 2015. This article shares an insider’s insight into some of the changes to occur during production, and provides a brief snapshot of parts of the journey taken to get to release of this model correct and on time, as we promised.


Drake Collectables – 1/50 Betts Bower Kenworth C509Australian Model Replicas – 1/43 1971 ATCC #1 Holden HT GTS 350 Monaro

Collectors and admirers of exotic European road cars, from the past to present, will adore the Minichamps 1/18 1936 Lancia Astura Tipo 233 Corto, as well as the TRL Models 1/18 1968 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Landaulet. If not these, then it must be the Kyosho 1:18 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Coupe that will get your motor runnin’.
Small-scale collectors will enjoy the craftsmanship and quality of the Esval Models 1/43 1929 Cord L-29 Coupe, and the Automodello 1/43 1962 Ford Mustang I Concept. For something a little different from the usual, check out Century Dragons 1/18 Land Rover Defender 110, or possibly the last ever Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari, the 1/18 1976 Monaco GP #1 Ferrari 312T2 as driven by Niki Lauda.
