Find out what's in the July 2021 issue of Diecast Collector

We celebrate 60 years of Sikorsky’s Sea King helicopter, take a fast drive in the French countryside with the innovative Rover-BRM gas turbine at Le Mans in the early 1960s, and chart the history and rebirth of Somerville Models. We conclude our look at the fastest ever production cars, put together an impressive diecast diorama partwork, and have a go at some diecasting DIY. The second part of our occasional series looking at vintage figures and accessories concentrates on patrolmen and policeman, whilst there is also a focus on recent Porsche replicas.

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.
