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

A collectible in its own right, Issue 4 of The Diecast Magazine brings collectors the latest news and reviews about scale die-cast model releases.

As always, The Diecast Magazine features the latest releases from die cast manufacturers around the world. The latest model from CMC, the Audi 225 Front Roadster, is here, as is the 1:18 Mercury Parklane Convertible from Sunstar. We take a look at the magnificent Le Mans winning Jaguar D-Type from Autoart in 1/12 scale and an iconic car from the Australian arm of General Motors, the 1953 FJ Holden from Trax. We also take a sneak peek at an upcoming 1/18 release from Kyosho, that very French sports coupe, the Alpine Renault A110!

An update of the Lola T70 race cars from GMP leads our racing lineup. Fans of historic American automobiles will love the coverage on the 1:18 Carousel 1 Indy winning Kurtis Kraft ‘Fuel Injection Special’ as driven by the legendary Bill Vukovich! Muscle car fans, look out for the Mustang Mach 1 in 1/43 from Minichamps, or if you prefer something more stylish for the road, then take your pick from the 1/24 ’57 Chevy 210 hardtop from M2 Machines or the 1/18 1941 Packard Darrin 180 Victoria! Want something a little different? Our detailed coverage of the build process of a scratch-built replica allows you to watch a resin model of a ‘Bugeye’ Austin Healey Sprite take shape before for your eyes!

Miniature truckers, this is the issue for you! Issue 4 of The Diecast Magazine provides collectors news of a fantastic new website from Die-Cast Promotions that gives you the ability to personalize your very own one-of-a-kind 1/64 tractor and trailer!
