DCX SuperConvention February 2014!

Jan 19, 2014 No Comments by

Yes, it’s true: Die Cast X will be sponsoring the premier event in the die cast (and resincast) hobby starting in 2014 as the DCX SuperConvention rolls through Las Vegas, Nevada in February 2014.  The show is already deep into the planning stages, with a promised lineup of celebrities, car folks, TV and movie personalities – and a serious dose  of cars, both real and in scale!

Want to meet the designers of some of your favorite model cars? Done. Want to rub elbows with folks as crazy about collecting die cast as you are? No problem. Want to join the crowd that brings out the best collecting experience, year after year? Here’s your chance. There will be event cars – special runs of die cast models dedicated to this show – as well as real show cars and the folks who built them. Vendors, special bonus attractions, in-room trading (the coolest way to stock up on the models you always wanted – and couldn’t find) and all-day, all night fun will make this an event for serious collectors and their families. And what happens in Vegas – is always cool.

We’ll keep you posted on celebrities and event developments as the date draws near… but trust us, this is a show you DO NOT WANT TO MISS! Click the link below to get ticket and event pricing – and we’ll see you in Vegas!

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
