Diecast Model World is a glossy British magazine dedicated to the world of collecting diecast model vehicles.

History and profile[edit]

Diecast Model World was established in 2011.[1] The first issue featured articles on Bristol buses by Mike Forbes, Corgi fairground models by Alistair Golding, vintage fire engines by Mike Pigott, Dinky forklifts by Roger Wynn, and Japanese models of Austin cars by Andrew Ralston. There was also a roundup of new products, a feature on classic models and their real-life counterparts by Malcolm Bates, and an article about promotional model trucks from supermarkets by Mike King. King died just prior to the magazine being released.[2] The magazine is self-published by Mike Forbes, editor of Ian Allan Publishing's classic transport journal Vintage Roadscene and former editor of Diecast Collector Magazine.

Diecast Model World is published quarterly, in January, April, July and October. At present it is only available by direct subscription, although copies can be picked up at certain toy fairs and swapmeets.
