The Diecast Magazine is every model collector’s ultimate model collecting magazine for resin scale models, die cast model cars, or any die-cast model replica.
Ferrari is a motoring marque known throughout the world. Testarossa would have to be the next word that rolls off the tongue when discussing the brand’s distinguished history. Thus Kyosho’s latest resin 1/18 version of this iconic motor car graces the front cover of issue 32 of The Diecast Magazine - North American edition.
Issue 32 of The Diecast Magazine takes the editorial quality a level higher, with in-depth articles about AUTOart’s 1/18 1965 Mexico GP winning #11 Honda RA272 as driven by Richie Ginther. The opening featuring article covers the Auto-Union NAG Bussing produced in 1/18 resin by Premium Classixxs. But if you like commercial carriers from a faraway land, then part 2 article of our ‘Double Deckers Downunder’ feature is definitely going to please. But what makes these features really special are the images of the real vehicles from back in the day …Check it out.
But what would an issue of The Diecast Magazine – North American edition be with some Americana? Our coverage of ACME Diecast’s ‘Porkchop’s Jailbreak’ 1933 Gasser reignites the Porkchop story and celebrates that Southern spirit of survival. For small-scale collectors, our article ‘It’s a Duesy’ celebrates one of America’s most well-known motoring marques from an era long gone. But for something different, American Heritage Models presents us with their 1/50 foray into collections, its recently released ACF-Brill Greyhound bus. Steeped in history, the model is the first of many exciting variants expected to come very soon.
The Diecast Magazine is always seeking out those different, exciting and collectable models from the past and present, and this issue’s in-depth article about the Minichamps 1/18 1948 Land Rover will strike a chord with many, as this popular model has been very well received by collectors previously. But for collectors of the old-world genre of model, Doug Kelly’s brilliant and educational article on Renwal Diecast models, ‘Stumbling Out of the Gate’, will please old-school collectors.
Issue 32’s Diecast Diary section sees AUTOart president Jimmy Yee share a more serious outlook about the ‘Past and Present of Diecast Model Cars’, which is sure to make collectors think about our hobby and its direction.
There is always something different in each and every issue, and this one kicks a goal with pictorials of a recent held event by the Car Model Club of Thailand, and also an open day held by Drake Collectibles at its headquarters in Brisbane, Australia. Save yourself the airfare, just buy The Diecast Magazine, we’ll take you there.
As in every issue of The Diecast Magazine, Shop Talk features all the latest releases from around the world, while model collectors have their say on the Readers Page and share their collections in Collectors Post.
Rounding out issue 32 of The Diecast Magazine are the popular how-to section 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.
The Diecast Magazine is the highest quality diecast model collector magazine in the world, and has the ‘diecastX factor’ as the best publication for the serious diecast model collector.
Issue 32 will be available until December 12, 2016, at select diecast model dealers throughout North America, as well as Barnes & Noble bookstores, select Hastings and Waldenbooks stores, and Indigo bookstores throughout Canada.
