Our 'Top Diecast Models of the Month' - this issue, two new releases from British Transport Classics. ...
The wait is over for classic lorry enthusiasts who like their models in 1/50 scale. A new range of classic commercial vehicle models is now available called British Transport Classics. The range will include well-known types of vehicle from the halcyon days of road transport in the UK, with both well-remembered liveries from times gone by and current preserved vehicles represented. By producing a mix of restored vehicles as well as original liveries, the new range will help keep alive the heritage of British haulage companies both large and small.
The first two releases are models of well-known vehicles on the preservation and rally scene, the Bedford OL flatbed from the R C Jeffery & Sons fleet of restored lorries, based in Warwickshire, and the Commer QX of Wiltshire-based F Compton and Sons.
Above all, the range will re-introduce classic lorry models in the popular 1/50 scale, of which there have been few new releases in recent years. This scale, long recognised everywhere as the best scale for lorry models, allows a high level of detail within a still manageable size. For this reason alone, the new range is sure to be welcomed by all collectors.
