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.
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!
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
Hot Online again provides new statistics for some of the
