Exclusive preview of Oxford Diecast's new models for late 2012/early2013 ...
Recently we were lucky enough to be invited to Oxford Diecast’s preview day up at John Ayrey’s in Shipley, Yorkshire. Throughout the day, Lyndon Davies, owner of Oxford Diecast, took us through the many exciting new models scheduled for release later this year and we even had a sneak peak at some of the pre-production replicas slated for 2013.
Starting with some pre-production prototypes we firstly have the 1/43 Humber Pullman, which is due for release in Q4 2012.
Currently not catalogued is this pre-production 1/76 scale Scania T cab below. We were told to expect a release in early 2013.
Another Scania which is also not catalogued yet is a very early (without any wheels, in fact!) 1/76 scale Scania 110. Again, this is due to hit the shops in 2013. Oxford were previewing more models in pre-production stages, details of which can be found in our latest issue of Diecast Collector.
Oxford's range of Eddie Stobart trucks, complete with impressive Super League liveries for different teams, are all due in Q3 2012.
Part of the Oxford Commercials range is this 1/43 scale Southdown Ford 400E (ref: FDE008) in green from the 1950s to 1970s. It’s due for release in Q4 2012.
Based on the RAF (Olive) David Brown Tractor from 1950 is this model (76DBT001) in 1/76 scale and due out in Q3 2012.
Coming soon is this Essex Police Land Rover Discovery (76LRD001), based on the year 2000 livery.
Something with a bit more vintage is the Maroon Austin Heavy Twelve (AHT002) from 1930. This comes in 1/43 scale and is set for release in Q3 2012.
Although these OWB models have been released before in military liveries, these versions feature a new casting, complete with a longer ‘snout’ and lower side bars.
We also have the 1/76 scale Ergamatic in light green, which is a brand new livery for the AEC range.
There were more new models previewed, all of which can be found in our latest issue. And don't forget, you can watch Lyndon Davies in action on our YouTube channel here!
