Scale Model Life: Building Scale Model Kits Magazine (Volume 4)

Issue 4 of the Scale Model Life is out now. This issue has a focus on diecast cars. I know what you're thinking, it should be about plastic model car kits. And maybe you would be right. But a lot of car modelers I know do buy diecast, for several reasons. One, they usually buy a car that's probably not available in plastic. Two, what I see happen is that they buy them for parts. Tires, wheels, bodies. Diecast cars are good for stripping off the parts you need to build the car you want.

But there are also car model kits that are all diecast, but more often, a hybrid. Part plastic, but with a metal body. Sometimes they're even prepainted. But you can still strip them, paint them, detail them, redo them. Many times diecast cars cost less than a plastic model. So you can still have a great time building (or RE-building) them.

This book discusses how to do all these things. How to make a diecast car (or truck) model you build, even better, than stock out of the box. Don't fear diecast cars , embrace them. Make them into the cars of your dreams.
