The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 11 - March 2011

Do you appreciate scale diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any kind of die-cast model? So do we at The Diecast Magazine.

That’s why in Issue 11, you will read about the Esders Roadster, a Bugatti Type 41 Royale. Manufactured by Bauer, based in Germany, this stunning Die cast model car is simply beautiful and is the front cover model of this issue of The Diecast Magazine. The photography will blow you away and the article goes in-depth about the model and the real car with information listing the history and whereabouts of the six Type 41s produced by Bugatti.

From an international perspective, we also take a look at a model exhibition being held in Bard, Italy until the end of March. For TV and movie theme model collectors, you will love our review of the Vitesse 1:43 Black Beauty die cast model from the recently released movie, the Green Hornet. Back to Bugatti, and CMC’s die cast model of the Type 57SC 1938 Bugatti will blow away collectors of fine automobiles. With CMC’s high level of detail, this diecast model is another sensational release from the German manufacturer and one desired by many for inclusion within their collections.

Also in Issue 11, we feature a brilliant hand-made, one-of-a-kind, Ford GT40 MkII that raced in Spain. Joan Prieto is a dedicated craftsman of absolute quality and this truly amazing replica includes materials of a real GT40 in its making. For collectors wanting to tinker with their diecast models and create that unique piece for a collection, the Diecast Surgery is for you. The Diecast Magazine’s resident ‘Dr’ Rob Smith provides a step by step process of transforming an ex-display model of an Australian V8 Supercar race car from its sterile out-of-the-box look to a dirty and grimy race-finished look as it would be after an aggressive session on the track. While it may be an Australian race car, the principles in achieving the look are the same for any collector wanting a realistic look of any die cast model race car and as it raced on the day.

I
ssue 11 also has lots of hot new diecast model releases from manufacturers from around the world in the Shop Talk section. What’s Hot Online provides data of some of the notable die cast model sales recorded since the last issue and of course there are our dedicated readership of collectors sharing their passion with everyone in the Readers Page and Collectors Post. Looking for that special or hard to find die cast model? The advertisers directory is the place to start and is your source to track down that ‘must have’ die-cast model.
