The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 13 - September 2011

Whether you collect diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any die-cast model replica, in whatever scale, The Diecast Magazine is for you.

Issue 13 of The Diecast Magazine is packed full of diecast models in a variety of scales from manufacturers, not only in the US, but also from around the world. Issue 13’s front cover features Automodello’s masterful replica of the 1938 Packard Twelve Victoria Convertible. These 1/43 scale models are sensational and will make collectors of larger scales sit up and take notice of the detail and precision built into these models.

For collectors of American cars, Issue 13 perfectly caters for you with in-depth reviews of the Sunstar 1/18 scale Lucille Ball 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible (I Love Lucy 60th anniversary) and the 1/43 scale Durham Classics 1954 Ford Ranch Wagon in Turquoise/White. For muscle car fans there is the American Muscle 1/18 scale 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396, and for Hot-Rodders, the Danbury Mint die cast model review of the 1/24 scale McMullen Roadster is sure to please.

For collectors of luxurious and racing-bred marques, Issue 13 of The Diecast Magazine reviews the much-anticipated Kyosho 1/18 scale diecast Rolls-Royce Ghost, the Hot Wheels Elite 1/18 scale die cast model of the 1971 24 hours of Daytona Ferrari 512S and 1995 Le Mans #40 Ferrari F40 Competizione, as well as the release of the 1:43 scale Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. Not to mention the splendid die cast model releases from Minichamps of an Aston Martin and two Porsches, in 1/43 scale.

Issue 13 of The Diecast Magazine has the Diecast X factor with the results of the Diecast Zone 2011 Wish List Results, which is an interesting outcome, along with an introduction of how to photograph your collection, a facet of diecast model collecting we will be focusing on in future issues. There is also an insight into one of the largest diecast manufacturers in the world with an interview with Paul Lang, owner of Minichamps, and an eye-opening article into a collector who has taken it one step further, or more, in the article titled Bench Racing Corvettes which focuses upon a specialty production of model that has never been produced before.

As always we have something different for readers of The Diecast Magazine and Issue 13 is no different, with our regular inclusions of What’s Hot Online focusing upon some of the more notable trades on the secondary market, along with the Diecast Surgery in which “Dr” Rob Smith takes a journey back to the past with his Flower Power Volkswagen. For something really different, we have an introduction in the world of Australian V8 Supercars, which are scheduled to be in racing in Texas in 2013, with a wrap-up of driver Craig Lowndes’s Bathurst-winning replicas from 2006, 2007 and 2008. And from an international perspective, we feature the Automotorero and Funtoys event held in Torino, Italy, a fantastic eye-opener to what collectors are exposed to outside of the borders of the US.

This and much more is contained within Issue 13 of The Diecast Magazine, with all of the news and new release information within the Shop Talk section. 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. Overall, Issue 13 is another stunning issue and a must-have for any serious collector.

Issue 13 is available now at select diecast model dealers throughout the North America, as well as EVERY Barnes and Noble bookstore, and select Borders, Hastings, Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
