Whether you collect resin models, die cast replicas, scaled die-cast vehicles or diecast model cars, The Diecast Magazine is your must have reference tool.
Classic Carlectables stole the front cover of issue 37 of The Diecast Magazine Australia/New Zealand edition with its celebratory model of Craig Lowndes’ 100 race wins. This 1/18 scale die cast Holden Commodore V8 Supercar earned a place in many collections and has remained hot property since its release.
Collectors of Aussie road cars are treated to Biante’s 1991 Tooheys 1000 Special Edition Holden VN Commodore SS Group A in 1/18 die-cast. This was one of two very special cars given away at the great race, and is now immortalised in die cast model form. Our pictorial wrap-up of the 2015 Motor Classica event is sure to capture the hearts of motoring enthusiasts of all persuasions, and leave them with an almost unobtainable wish list! But the good thing is, most of these cars are available in scale model form, so you can tick them off that wish list as you hunt them down.
Collectors of premium diecast model replicas will appreciate our article on the 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato, produced by CMC in 1/18 scale. And for lovers of classic automobiles, who could go past a 1983 Volkswagen 1200? Produced in 1/18 scale diecast by Minichamps, this beautiful blue Beetle would be a great addition to any collection.


Classic Carlectables – 1/18 Holden V8 Supercar – Craig Lowndes 100 winsBiante – 1991 Tooheys 1000 Special Edition Holden VN Commodore SS Group A

We take a look across the Pacific at some US classics in our in-depth reviews of AutoWorld’s 1/18 1957 Ford Thunderbird diecast model, and the constantly growing range of 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Broughams produced in 1/18 scale diecast by SunStar.
And The Diecast Magazine just wouldn’t be complete without something a little different. This time it’s a stunning pictorial of ‘exploding’ cars. Don’t be alarmed, it is in fact layered photography created by the very talented Fabian Oefner. And for the ‘ol’ skool’ collectors, the article titled Transatlantic Connection celebrates 1/43-scale British Ford replicas of the 1950s and ’60s.
Issue 37 also takes you to Germany to peek behind the scenes of arguably Europe’s largest retailer of model cars, Model Car World. Rarely do we get to see this side of the hobby and the size of such an operation… amazing.
Diecast Diary welcomes back AUTOart president Jimmy Yee, who takes us through the journey of applying matt paint the AUTOart way. Mr Yee explains the challenges faced in this process, and the uncompromising approach taken by AUTOart. Diecast Surgery is back again, with Dr. Rob taking us through the steps of fitting fuel injection to make your custom one-of-a-kind high-octane street mauler.

What’s Hot Online has extensive listings of notable die cast model cars traded via online auction websites, while collectors have their say on the Readers Page and share their collections with us in Collectors Post. Of course, it’s all in the only diecast model collector magazine with the diecastX factor: The Diecast Magazine.
