The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 12 - June 2011

Do you collect diecast cars, die cast models or diecast replicas? If so, The Diecast Magazine is a must for any serious diecast collector.

Issue 12 of The Diecast Magazine packs a punch with plenty of diecast model reviews and so much more. TrueScale Miniatures has allowed The Diecast Magazine a sneak peak at the upcoming diecast model of the Porsche 936 that raced at Le Mans in 1977. This diecast model car, a preproduction sample and only 70% complete, features on the front cover. In our review, we inform you of the many corrections to be made while also admiring the quality of what already appears in what we title as Porsche Perfection.

Also in Issue 12, there are plenty of in-depth articles swathed in breathtaking professional photography such as the diecast model cars of the Danbury Mint 1936 Packard Twelve Sport Phaeton, the Lotus Renault GP and Team Vodafone Mercedes McLaren 2010 Formula-1 show cars produced by Minichamps and, for small scale, budget-conscious diecast model collectors, you cannot go past Oxford Diecast’s Armstrong Siddeleys. These and much more awaits in Issue 12 of The Diecast Magazine.

For something different, we also have a post-event experience of the 2011 International Toy Fair held during February in Nuremburg, Germany. Not to mention a wrap-up of the 1/43 scale model car expo held in Chicago in March and a brilliant article, ‘Let’s see the real ones,’ that shows select 1/1 scale cars on show at this year’s Amelia Island Concours along with scale model replicas previously released of the same cars.

Overall, Issue 12 is another stunning issue and rounding it all off is the always popular die-cast model news and new release section titled Shop Talk, What’s Hot Online lists a select group of notable die-cast model trades made on the secondary market and of course our dedicated readers have their say in the Readers Page and our most passionate die-cast model collectors show us their collections in the Collectors Post.

Issue 12 is available now at select diecast model dealers throughout the North America, as well as select Barnes and Noble, Borders, Hastings and Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
