New model releases from Oxford Diecast

09 March 2021
Rick Wilson details the company’s new product announcements.

With the past 12 months having been a totally different experience, any preview days that we would usually attend have, of course, been out of the question. So for the reveal of its new announcements for 2021, Oxford Diecast turned to social media.

The company also regularly sends out its own mini-magazine, called Globe, to keep its subscribers up to date with all the imminent releases. In Globe No 251, Managing Director, Eloise Davies, introduced that issue with an explanation of recent events and experiences.

"January is usually a remarkably busy period after I return from a relaxing Christmas. We are usually gearing up for the Trade Shows in London and Nuremberg. We make our announcements for the first period of the year for Oxford Diecast and Oxford Rail. We then take this information and promote it along with other previously announced items to our worldwide retailers and wholesalers who visit the shows. I usually return from the shows with a buzz of excitement after having strengthened working relationships with customers and licensing agencies. It is an opportunity to discuss what we have coming and potential opportunities for the future.

"Instead of dwelling on what could be, we are working behind the scenes on other projects, which we are confident will improve Oxford Diecast as a company. We also continue to develop products and tooling for some exciting releases over the course of 2021.

"Due to Covid-19, we, as well as many other companies, are now facing the knock-on effects. There are huge delays in the ports and significant increase in costs to import goods. We made the decision before Christmas to not make any rushed decisions, but we still await better news."

Despite continuing to trade in uncertain times, Oxford continues to invest in new tooling. Two such exciting future releases, both 1/76 scale, are the Alexander M Type, in the Oxford Omnibus range, and Liebherr's LTM1350 Crane. Both of these aren't due until Q4, so let's hope things improve by then to make sure they arrive on time.
