The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 10 - December 2010

The Diecast Magazine is a must have if you collect diecast model cars, die-cast model vehicles or die cast model replicas of any kind.

Issue 10 of The Diecast Magazine marks a historic milestone. It is the first time in the magazine’s history that a 1:43 scale model has graced the front cover of the magazine. But the American Excellence model replica of the 1949 Cadillac Series 62 ‘Sedanet’ deserves nothing less. Quite simply it is beautiful, and The Diecast Magazine brings you an insight into the scale model replica of this rare representative of an iconic American brand of automobile, before the model’s release in December 2010.

AMERICAN EXCELLENCE 1949 Cadillac Series 62 SedanetReaders Page and Collectors Post

In Issue 10 we present a revealing interview with John Fitch, creator of the Fitch Phoenix supercar of the ’60s. Fitch has lived a life of motor racing only few can equal, and The Diecast Magazine goes one-on-one with this inspirational gentleman on the eve of Automodello’s December release of the Fitch Phoenix in 1:43 scale.

Also in Issue 10 we also take you back to Thailand where the Car Model Club of Thailand (CMCT) was privileged to be invited to display club members’ Maserati models at the grand launch of the Maserati GranCabrio held at the Italian embassy in Thailand. The club’s founder, Mr Thongchat Kongsook, shares with our readers some of the highlights from the event held in July this year.

For something a little different, ‘Dr’ Rob Smith from the Diecast Surgery resuscitates a dilapidated plastic model that would ordinarily have been thrown away. In a piece suitably titled ‘Relics and the Recycled’, the doctor revives and successfully creates a unique piece of décor for your diorama setting. It’s not rocket science; all you need are a few tools and a creative imagination.
