The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 28 - September 2015

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

Issue 28 of The Diecast Magazine sees AutoWorld’s 1/18 Diecast 1971 Plymouth 340 Duster smashing the front cover. For any budget-minded collector of scale-model American muscle cars, you can’t look far past AutoWorld’s brilliant array of diecast releases, especially when you can grab one for far less than $100.

One of the many things that sets The Diecast Magazine apart is the diversity of content within each issue, and this issue is no exception. The article ‘Grand Layout Russia’ features a massive Russia-based diorama which is open to the public. While abroad, TDM editor Matt White also took a sneak peek at the operations of arguably one of the largest model dealers in Europe. This behind-the-scenes look captures the sheer size of what started from very humble beginnings, and now opens its door to its new US headquarters located in Charlotte, NC. But if you are more into the technical side of our hobby, then you are going to love AUTOart president Jimmy Yee’s article describing the difficulties of painting matte-finished vehicles.

AutoWorld – 1/18 Plymouth DusterCentury Dragon – 1/18 Land Rover Defender 110

In issue 28 we also take a look at Century Dragon’s 1/18 Diecast Land Rover Defender 110 model replica in Metallic Orkney Gray. Then there’s an all time favorite, a 1/18 diecast 1983 Volkswagen 1200 scale model in Blue, produced by Minichamps. But the standout for economy is Kyosho’s new Ousia range of closed-body diecast models, and the first release of the range, the Lamborghini Veneno Coupe in Metallic Red. Kyosho quality for $100, who would have ever thought this would happen.

Collectors of 1/43 models are never forgotten at The Diecast Magazine, and small-scale collectors will particularly enjoy two articles, the first, the ‘Standard of the World’ about classic Cadillacs. The second, an insight into the latest and most attractive resin scale-model release from Esval Models of the 1/43 1929 Cord L-29 Coupe.

Nor does The Diecast Magazine forget Heavy Machinery collectors, as proved by our in-depth diecast model review of the EMD 1/50 Ruston Bucyrus 22-RB Dragline. We also take the time to look at what will probably be the last Hot Wheels Formula One race car ever to be produced, the 1/18 1976 Monaco GP #1 Ferrari model 312T2 as driven by Niki Lauda.

As in every issue of The Diecast Magazine, issue 28’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 28 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 28 of The Diecast Magazine takes first prize for a diecast collector magazine, and has the ‘diecastX factor’ as the best magazine for the serious diecast model collector.

Issue 28 will be available until October 2, 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.
