The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 3 - March 2009

Issue 3 of The Diecast Magazine is packed full of news and reviews of collectable die cast model vehicles for collectors of all types.

In this issue, The Diecast Magazine gives you the chance to see how a die-cast model is made! From the manufacturer’s point of view, we follow the exciting journey of the Models 56 1:24 XB Coupe from the drawing board to your display cabinet! We also continue our exclusive coverage of the Franklin Mint 1965 Lambandi Mk II with an insider’s look at the project with creator and designer Raffi Minasian.

With names like Ferrari, Jaguar, Ford and Chrysler Valiant from manufacturers like Kyosho, HPI Diecast and Trax, collectors of 1:43 scale automobiles will just love this edition! For the 1:18 scaled model collector, we bring you a line-up of releases from both local and international makers, with some great American road and race die-cast cars, including an Autoart 1982 Collectors’ Edition Corvette and the Carousel 1 1984 Indianapolis 500-winning March 84C, driven by Rick Mears, as well as the Exact Detail Oldsmobile 4-4-2! Two-wheel model enthusiasts are catered for in our feature on the Minichamps Classic Motorcycle series! No matter what you collect, gain some inspiration in displaying your model cars from the absolutely fantastic diorama on page 49. Just imagine one of these in your collection!
