The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 23 - March 2014

Are you a diecast collector of model cars? The Diecast Magazine is your model car guide to all the latest and greatest diecast models.

Issue 23 of The Diecast Magazine has this and much more, and features the Automodello 1/24 scale resin model car of the 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III. Shimmering in Red Moondust color, this model is a credit to what resin can do for curbside model cars. With crisp lines and plenty to see, this model is a visual treat for any collector looking for a collectible in 1/24 scale.

In 1/18 scale, you can’t go past CMC for consistently high quality and detail, and the diecast model car replica of the 1938 Bugatti Corsica Type 57SC Roadster yet again raises the benchmark for exceptional standards. You can discover how many parts it takes to form this model, and much more, by reading the in-depth article in this issue of The Diecast Magazine.

But what about 1/43 scale collectors? Don’t worry, we have plenty for you too, beginning with the recently released white metal model car of the Pontiac Catalina Vista 4-Door Hard-Top produced by Brooklin Models. Then there is the resin model car, produced by Automodello, of the 1962 Ford Mustang I Concept. But lovers of ol’ American iron will love the Classic Packard article by Dick Browne, featuring many different models from a variety of 1/43 scale specialists around the globe.

Issue 23 also has an exceptionally interesting article about German-based 1/50 scale Heavy Machinery model manufacturer, Conrad, and how its models are made. Heavy Machinery specialist Steven Downes takes us through his two-day visit to Conrad’s headquarters, explaining the process from conception through design, which results in a first hand-sample, pre-production, and finally delivery of a diecast model. If you have wondered what goes into making a diecast model, you must NOT miss this article.

Of course, The Diecast Magazine always has something a little different, and to keep things hot and spicy the Premium ClassiXXs 1/12 scale diecast model of the famous Mercedes-Benz 300 SL ‘Gullwing’ coupe does this perfectly. But for the ‘new era’ collector, you can’t go past MiniKraft Models’ sensational diecast model car replica of the Kia Quoris (K9) in 1/18 scale.

Also in Issue 23 of The Diecast Magazine the ‘Diecast Diary’ section welcomes Glen Chou, President of TrueScale Miniatures, who shares his amazing experience of touring the Chaparral museum in Texas. You will also read about the Diecast Zone’s 2014 Wish List results; an interesting explanation about the quirky AUTOart Tofu Car; and an article about the best material to use when creating one-of-a-kind custom decal decorations for your collection.

As in every issue of The Diecast Magazine, Issue 23’s ‘Shop Talk’ features all the latest on 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 23 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 23 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 23 will be available until June 16, 2014 at select diecast model dealers throughout North America, as well as Barnes & Noble bookstores, select Hastings and Waldenbooks stores, as well as Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
