Do you collect Scaled Resin Models, Diecast Model Cars, Die Cast Trucks or Die-Cast Anything? If so, then The Diecast Magazine is for you.
Drake Collectibles has taken collectability to another level with its release of the rare 1/50 Die cast Kenworth C509 truck in Anzac Livery. The model is featured on the front cover of issue 39, while the 1/1 version is owned by the Braitling family of the Northern Territory. Limited to 150 pieces, Drake’s collectible model sold out within 24 hours of being announced. If you can get your hands on one now, we would strongly recommend you do so.
Still on the commercial carrier theme is our article titled ‘Double Deckers Downunder’, which provides a wonderful insight into Australia’s bus history, particularly in the southern capitals, and looks at models based on some familiar routes that many collectors may remember riding in their youth. Focusing predominantly on the Trax model maker and its Trux line of models, the article is a real treat for collectors, showing not only the models but also some of the actual buses in action.


AMR – 1/43 Falcon and Monaro ResinatorsDrake Collectibles – 1/50 Kenworth C509 ANZAC Truck

With the controversy of this year’s Bathurst 1000 fresh in the minds of Australian motoring racing fans, issue 39 of The Diecast Magazine doesn’t forget Aussie revheads, with a Classic Carlectables rendition of the 1:18 Holden HT 350 GTS Monaro as driven by Norm Beechey at the 1972 Bathurst race. Biante come to the party with a 1/18 #9 Ford XA Falcon Hardtop, as driven by Allan Moffat in Adelaide during the 1973 championship season. Both model cars are produced in die cast metal and feature the regular openings many collectors have come to expect from these two model car manufacturers.
Collectors of small-scale resin models will enjoy the 1/43 scale articles on Automodello’s TVR Taimer, Australian Model Replicas’ brand new Resinators range of blown Ford and Holden muscle madness, and a special feature from one of our US correspondents on his favourite car, the Duesenberg Arlington Torpedo.
Also within issue 39 of The Diecast Magazine, we take a look at the last 1/18 Ferrari road car to come from Hot Wheels Elite. TDM recommends this model for collectors, not only because of what type of car it is, but also as it marks the end of an era for Hot Wheels Elite, as the Ferrari license has now been moved to Bburago.
US muscle cars old and new make an appearance in issue 39 of The Diecast Magazine, with Acme Diecast’s 1/18 1957 Chevrolet Stock Car as prepared for racing by Smokey Yunick. There is also Maisto’s 1/18 diecast model replica of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Considering this is a car we will see more on our roads in the near future, we thought it fitting to include it. This and more US muscle cars are featured in issue 39 of The Diecast Magazine.
