The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 21 - September 2013

If it’s diecast, die cast or die-cast, The Diecast Magazine is your perfect reference for any model car collector, in all scales and varieties.

Welcome to Issue 21, the September 2013 edition, with GreenLight Collectibles’s superb 1/18 scale diecast model of the 1977-78 Ford Mustang II Cobra II featured on the front cover. No matter what you collect, you are certain to enjoy fantastic detail and plenty of ‘bang for your buck’. We all love great value. So check this one out; it will tick all your boxes.

In Issue 21 of The Diecast Magazine we also take a look at the recently released Steve McQueen 1/18 scale diecast model of the 1958 Porsche 356 Speedster in black, as well as an older McQueen diecast model release, also in 1/18 scale, of the 1956 Jaguar XKSS. Schuco’s release of the 1/18 scale diecast model race car of the Formula 1 #8 1959 World Champion Cooper T51, as driven by Jack Brabham, took a lot of people by surprise when it was released recently. But if we are talking about highly detailed quality, you can’t go past CMC and the article about the trio of Mercedes-Benz 300SLRs from the 1955 Mille Miglia driven by Fangio, Kling, and Herrmann.

But that’s not all! You mustn’t miss the self-explanatorily-titled article ‘Enhancing Diecast - A better look for small bucks’, or the review of the recently released Snake & Mongoose feature film. There’s also a pictorial of some of the rare collectibles seen at the July 23, 2013 swap meet held in Novegro, Italy; and in this issue’s ‘Diecast Diary’ AUTOart’s President Mr. Jimmy Yee explains the difficulties involved in achieving proper ride height when producing a diecast model car.

There’s plenty more within Issue 21 of The Diecast Magazine. We also take a look at three ‘Resin Roadsters’ as part of the first releases in a new series of collections developed by Minichamps, including the popular Mullin Automotive Museum collection. Also reviewed is Hot Wheels’s 1/18 scale Elite version of the 1959 Ferrari 410 Superamerica. For those who like to collect models that get down and dirty, Sun Star’s 1/18 scale model race car of the #15 MG Metro 6R4 rally car, and Norscot’s 1/50 scale diecast Caterpillar 795F AC Electric Drive Mining Truck, are sure to impress any model collector.

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 21 of The Diecast Magazine rounds off its brilliant variety of balanced in-depth editorial content with our extremely popular ‘how-to’ section titled Diecast Surgery with ‘Dr’ Rob Smith’, and of course the all-important What’s Hot Online which lists many of the notable secondary market trades since release of the previous issue.
Needless to say, Issue 21 of The Diecast Magazine takes first prize for a diecast model magazine and has the ‘diecast X factor’ as the best magazine for the serious diecast model collector.
Issue 21 will be available until December 14, 2013 at select diecast model dealers throughout North America, as well as Barnes & Noble bookstores, and select Hastings and Waldenbooks stores, as well as Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
