The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 27 - March 2015

If you collect diecast model cars, die cast model trucks or any scale model replica, The Diecast Magazine is the model magazine for collectors.

Issue 27 of The Diecast Magazine features the silky-smooth lines of Automodello’s 1/43 resin release of the 1948 Norman E. Timbs Streamliner in Metallic Maroon. Produced in two color variants, this curvaceous creation is a replica of the one-off developed more than half a century ago, and still looks as good today as it did then.

Small-scale US road and race collectors will rejoice with the feature articles of Replicarz’ releases of the 1948, ’49 and ’70 Indianapolis 500 winners and the Minichamps Mullins Automotive Museum Collection wrap-up, all produced in 1/43 scale. 1/18 US collectors will feel right at home with the review of Motor City Classics’ original release of a 1/18 Airstream Caravan, and what would be better for towing it, and for that wind-in-your-hair feeling, than AutoWorld/American Muscle’s latest release of a 1957 Ford Thunderbird.

Collectors of European exotic car models need look no further than the splendid supercar model productions from Century Dragon in 1/43 scale of the BMW M1 and BMW 850Ci. Minichamps’ breathtaking resin 1/18 1936 Lancia Astura Tipo 233 Corto is also featured in issue 27 of The Diecast Magazine, along with CMC’s finest to date, the 1/18 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato.

As always, we get hard and heavy with a construction model replica of an Australian-themed 1/50 Mack Granite Truck and Dog trailer from US company First Gear. Silver-screen-themed collectors will enjoy the two featured Hot Wheels Elite models in 1/18 scale, the Back to the Future Time Machine and the very special figurine-equipped 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters Ecto-1.

The Diecast Diary welcomes back AUTOart President Jimmy Yee to further explain the process of pad printing. Get the heads-up on what is expected to be released later this year with TDM Editor Matt White’s pictorial wrap-up of the 2015 German Toy Fair held earlier this year.

As in every issue of The Diecast Magazine, issue 27’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 in the ‘Collectors’ Post’.

Issue 27 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.

Needless to say, issue 27 of The Diecast Magazine takes first prize for a diecast collector magazine, and has the ‘diecast X factor’ as the best magazine for the serious diecast model collector.

Issue 27 will be available until June 2015 at select diecast model dealers throughout North America, as well as Barnes & Noble bookstores, select Hastings and Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
