The Diecast Magazine - North America - Issue 9 - September 2010

If you collect die-cast cars, die cast vehicles or any diecast models at all, The Diecast Magazine’s a ‘must have’, for any diecast collector.

Issue 9 of The Diecast Magazine has been released and our Shop Talk section features news and new release information about 1/4, 1/12, 1/16, 1/18, 1/20, 1/24, 1/32, 1/43, 1/48, 1/50, 1/64, and 1/72 scale models from all of the manufacturers we love and admire such as Amalgam, Bburago, Brooklin Models, Checkered Flag Sports, Classic Construction Models, GMP, GreenLight Collectibles, Kyosho, Maisto, Minichamps, Motorsports Authentics, Neo Scale Models, Sunstar, Sword Models and TWH Collectibles, to name some.

Issue 9 of The Diecast Magazine’ s main editorial section encompasses a brilliant seven-page feature about CMC’s 1/18 scale die cast model car of the Uhlenhaut 300 SLR Mercedes-Benz Coupe, including archive images from Mercedes-Benz Germany of Uhlenhaut’s two famous coupes. We also take a look at the 1/18 scale die-cast model car of the Parnelli Jones Saleen Mustang produced by Autoart, as well as the diecast model of the 1959 Mercury Park Lane in Marble White/Canton Red from Sunstar and the GreenLight Collectibles diecast replica of the 1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe CSX2601, amongst many others.

CMC Uhlenhaut 300 SLR CoupeThe Italian Connection

For collectors who like something a little different and on an international level, we introduce Australian-based Top Gear’s 1/43 resin model car of the Formula-1 championship-winning Brabham-Repco BT19 which combines an interview with the man himself, Sir Jack Brabham. There is also a splendid article about Joan Prieto, a truly specialized 1/10 scale hand-builder based in Spain and we exhibit his craft in the form of a Pegaso Z-102 Spider Touring. We also join in Alfa Romeo’s 100th anniversary celebrations in Italy with a wrap-up of a die cast model car and 1/1 scale event in Novegro, Italy. The fun doesn’t stop there, as Issue 9 also introduces Australian based die-cast model car manufacturer Classic Carlectables’ General Motors Holden Coupe 60 concept, a vehicle that was to be the next Pontiac GTO, and what a model this is!

Of course, there are also our beloved readers and collectors sharing their opinions and collections in the Readers Page and The Collectors Post and Rob Smith takes us through a repair of a broken model, upon purchase, in the Diecast Surgery pages.
