Whether you collect die cast, die-cast or diecast models, even resin models, The Diecast Magazine is a one-stop reference for any serious model collector.
This is proved in Issue 19, the March 2013 edition, with the famous K.I.T.T. Pontiac Trans-Am featured on the front cover. This release produced in diecast metal by Hot Wheels Elite stamps its place in the genre of Movie- and TV-themed collectibles, with fantastic detail and plenty of bang for your buck.
With so much packed into Issue 19 of The Diecast Magazine, the question is where do you start? Is it with the article about the 1/20 scale diecast model kit of the 1935 Alfa Romeo P3 Tipo ‘B’ Monoposto produced by Revival International, or the in-depth article about CMC’s recently-released 1/18 scale Maserati 300S? Alternatively, could it be the 1/18 scale Minichamps Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in Silver, or the AUTOart diecast model replica of a Lamborghini Aventador in Arancio Argos?
Those who like it built tough to last forever are going to love the diecast metal detail contained in the YCC Models 1/50 Liebherr LG1550SL/SL3H Mobile Crane with Derrick Mast System. Not to mention the Drake Collectables 1/50 scale diecast model replica of the Kenworth K200 with Drake Trailer. But for those who prefer smaller scales, Issue 19 also has you covered with the editorial articles of the Brooklin Models white metal model of the 1/43 scale 1934 Miller-Buick Art Model Funeral Coach, as well as the 1/43 scale Ferrari ‘Italian Style’ diecast model collection produced by Art Model.
Patriotic collectors will feel closer to home after reading the reviews of the 1/43 scale Tom Mix Cord produced by MiniMarque and the Automodello 1/24 scale resin model of the Mormon Meteor. This is reinforced with the Autoworld 1/18 scale diecast model of the 1950 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 from the movie Grease, and the cake is iced with ACME Diecast’s model replica of a 1/18 scale 1972 Indianapolis 500 Hurst/Oldsmobile Indianapolis 500 Pace Car with Linda Vaughn figurine.
As always, in every issue of The Diecast Magazine, Shop Talk features all the latest news and new releases from around the world, while collectors have their say in the Readers’ Page, and share their collections with us in Collectors’ Post.
Issue 19 of The Diecast Magazine rounds off its brilliant variety of balanced in-depth editorial content by backing it all up with our extremely popular ‘how-to’ section titled Diecast Surgery with ‘Dr’ Rob Smith’ and of course the all-important What’s Hot Online section that lists many of the notable secondary market trades since release of the previous issue.
Needless to say, Issue 19 of The Diecast Magazine takes the number one prize for a diecast model magazine and has the diecast ‘X factor’ by being the best diecast collector magazine for the serious model collector.
Issue 19 will be available until June 10, 2013 at select die cast model dealers throughout North America, as well as Barnes and Noble bookstores, and select Hastings, Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
