The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 24 - June 2014

Are you a static scale model collector? The Diecast Magazine is the model car guide for any resin, die-cast, die cast or diecast collector.

Issue 24 of The Diecast Magazine is chock-full with heaps of goodness for every model collector, and features the newly tooled 1/18 scale diecast model car replica of the De Tomaso Pantera GTS, produced by Kyosho. Taking pride of place on this issue’s front cover, this model is sure to stir the senses of model collectors around the world.

For patriotic large-scale collectors, feast your eyes and open your mind to the wonderful 1:18 scale 1959 Cadillac Cyclone XP 74 Concept produced in resin by Minichamps. Picking up the pace, TrueScale Miniatures delivers its 1/18 scale model race car of the #76 Spirit of Le Mans Chevrolet Corvette as driven by John Goodwood at the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans. AutoWorld rounds off the racing element in Issue 24 with a review of its 1/18 scale 1968 Plymouth Road Runner NASCAR racer as driven by living legend Richard Petty. The patriotism continues with more classic Packards in 1/43 scale in the article titled ‘The Other Packards’.

Small-scale collectors are always well-catered for in The Diecast Magazine, and this issue is no different. There’s the in-depth article about the 1/43 scale Mercedes-Benz models produced by German-based Faller, while Oxford Diecast is up and center with two of its recently released 1/43 scale diecast model cars representing Austin of England. We also include an ‘arresting’ product review of GreenLight Collectibles’ 1/64 scale NYPD (and other) replicas for collectors of cop car models.

Of course, The Diecast Magazine always has something a little different, and continuing the variety are the articles titled ‘Dream Cars are Art’, and a ‘scaled perspective’ of the 2014 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, both by Dick Browne. We introduce you to something completely new with the 2013 Bathurst-winning V8 Supercar produced as a sealed body diecast metal model by Australian manufacturer Classic Carlectables

Also in Issue 24 of The Diecast Magazine the ‘Diecast Diary’ section welcomes back Glen Chou, President of TrueScale Miniatures, in the first of a two part series in which he shares his experiences during a  tour of the famous ‘Motor Valley’ in Italy, home to many well-known exotic motoring marques such as Ferrari and Lamborghini and their respective museums. You will also read about AUTOart’s amazingly detailed 1:43 scale McLaren F1 diecast model car, as well as Drake Collectibles’ 1/50 scale Kenworth T909 ‘The Rowan Truck’ with Swingwing Trailer.

As in every issue of The Diecast Magazine, Issue 24’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 24 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’ by ‘Dr.’ Rob Smith, and of course the all-important ‘What’s Hot Online’ which lists many of the notable secondary market trades since the previous issue was published.

Needless to say, Issue 24 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 24 will be available until September 2014 at select diecast model dealers throughout North America, as well as Barnes & Noble bookstores, select Hastings and Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
