The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 16 - June 2012

If you collect die-cast, die cast or diecast models in any form, The Diecast Magazine is your one stop reference for any diecast collector. The front cover of Issue 16 of The Diecast Magazine prominently features the world’s most mysterious driver, the Stig from the world famous TV series Top Gear, standing next to the world record Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, both of which have been produced as a splendid model car display by Minichamps in 1/43 scale.

This model car release by Minichamps is reviewed in full within this issue. Also included is the largest ever listing of What’s Hot Online. Spanning two pages and with more than 70 diecast models listed, there is something for everyone to check out what some of their diecast model cars and model tractors are worth, as well as a host of other collectibles including Exoto, Franklin Mint, Hot Wheels model cars, and many more.

Issue 16 also contains reports from the 2012 Chicago Scale Model Expo and the 2012 Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance. As for model reviews, TrueScale Miniatures provides us with a sneak peek of the new range 1/18 scale of diecast models aimed at the budget-conscious diecast collector with the 1/18 scale #5 Tyrrell 006 driven by Jackie Stewart to win the championship. Following the international flavour, and for collectors of classic European motoring models, check out our review of the 1/18 scale die cast Maisto Porsche number 1, based upon what became the 356 type. This beautiful diecast model car and its accuracy are reinforced with an image of the same on show at the Porsche museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

Eut for American muscle and road car collectors, you can’t go past the article of the 1/18 scale diecast model car of Autoworld’s Chevy Nova SS 396. This model in chrome finish forms part of a collection comprising 6 model cars celebrating Chevrolets 100th anniversary. Continuing the Chevy theme, but years apart, is the 1/18 scale 2011 Chevy Volt produced by Kyosho in die cast. This hybrid car is the future of motoring and Kyosho has wasted no time is replicating it in the high detail Kyosho is well known for amongst discerning model collectors. There is also a 1/18 scale Chevrolet El Camino pick-up in Diecast Surgery that suffered a little postage shock. But our faithful and dedicated diecast doctor, Rob Smith, takes us through the steps of reattaching the gear shifter in a very professional and specialized manner.

For 1/43 scale model car collectors, we take Automodello’s TVR M-Series resin model cars through their paces in an in-depth review. There is also a review of Brooklin Models’ first Pontiac Collection release of the 1/43 scale white metal model car replica of the 1937 Pontiac Deluxe Six 4-door Touring Sedan.

For something different, check out our book review of Randall Olsen’s Independents in Miniature, a must have for any serious 1:43 scale white metal model car collector. With its roots in Canada, Trax has released a 1/43 scale 1958 Ford Customline of the Australian Star Model variant. Forming part of the Trax select series produced in resin, we are certain you won’t find a replica of this resin model anywhere else in the world. Heavy machinery collectors are not left out in this issue of The Diecast Magazine and are well catered for with the forensic review of the YCC Models review of the 1:50 scale die-cast Gottwald AMK 1000 in Breuer company livery.

This and much more awaits you in Issue 16, which is another sensational issue of The Diecast Magazine. Shop Talk has you covered with all of the latest news and new releases from around the world. Collectors have their say in the Readers Page and share their collections with all of us in the Collectors Post. Of course, it’s all in one magazine with the diecast X factor, The Diecast Magazine.

Issue 16 is available now at select die cast model dealers throughout the North America, as well as Barnes and Noble bookstores, and select, Hastings, Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
