Find out what's in the May issue of Diecast Collector


Adventure awaits, Commer Walk-Thru, you can with a Nissan, and more Metro!

VW’s Amarok Aventura goes under the new model spotlight and there are 40 brand new model reviews to tempt you. We take a look back at the original efficient delivery van – the Commer Walk-Thru. The power of advertising is tested, and Nissans and Metros are examined. The original Mini replacement that never was makes for a thought-provoking interlude, and both Dennis the Menace and Thunderbirds make an appearance too. We conclude our look at cars that raced in Bastos colours, take a trip to the circus and remember an innovative Austrian entrepreneur. Then there’s the return of a vintage brand, Mercury. All your regular favourites are there too, of course, including Desert Island Diecasts, collecting Matchbox Superfast by number, vintage Dinky of the month, our monthly glimpse into the editor’s collection, and brand new model releases detailed and reviewed. There’s also the latest industry news, plus auction news and price guides, and readers’ letters – it’s another bumper issue packed with all manner of things new and old in the world of diecast.
