Diecast Magazine is a must have if you collect diecast
model cars, die-cast model vehicles or die cast model replicas
of any kind.
10 of The Diecast Magazine marks a historic milestone.
It is the first time in the magazine’s history that

rare representative of an iconic American brand of automobile,
before the model’s release in December 2010.

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

setting. It’s not rocket science; all you need are
a few tools and a creative imagination.
