Contents - THE DIECAST MAGAZINE - Issue 40 - September 2016

HOORAY for diecast model car and resin model collectors. Issue 40 celebrates the 10th year of The Diecast Magazine in Australia and New Zealand.
We kick off issue 40 with a fistful of diecast goodness, including the Peter Brock collection update, which is the first time this collection has been revised since issue 1 of The Diecast Magazine. We’re sure you’ll agree this is a long overdue inclusion!
If you are looking for more, we have it for you. The official entry form for the 2016 Christmas stocking competition is also contained within. There are four prizes totalling over $4500 in value, but you have to be in it to win it, so be sure to get your entry in before the closing date to be in the running.
Continuing on from last issue is part 2 of our Double Deckers Downunder feature, which has proved a real hit with readers. And we showcase recent 1/18 releases from Classic Carlectables of some Aussie motor racing classics: the 1973 ATCC #1 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger as driven by Ian Geoghegan, and the 1976 Bathurst Ford XB Falcon Hardtop as driven by John Goss and Jim Richards. Both are shown in all their glory, diecast and with full openings.

For something a little different, there’s a review of the recent ACME Diecast 1/18 Jailbreak Gasser, and if you listen carefully you can still hear those tyres squealing and that blower whizzing as it makes its way up the hills of the Pine Sap highlands to Pork Chop’s secret hideaway. On the other side of the law, we have the Batman and Robin Batcycle produced in 1/18 diecast by Hot Wheels Elite. Whether this is your type of collectable or not, this stunning 1/12 model has the size and heft to get your attention.

AUTOart president Jimmy Yee provides an insight into “The past and present of model cars” within this issue’s Diecast Diary section. And ‘Dr.’ Rob is back with more Diecast Surgery, this time a commission to build a replica of an old Monaro stock car that brought a lot of joy to a growing family many years ago.
