Bringing you the latest news from Nuremberg
Following on from yesterday's quick reveal of the new Duple Commander MkII, a return visit to the stand with more time today brings us some more newbies.
Previously seen on the preview day a couple of months ago in basic metal and resin form, both the new 1/76 scale Scammell Highwayman Tanker (first release in the very evocative Shell/BP livery) and the Jamie's Citroen H Van at the same scale, complete with bespoke packaging, are seen for the first time. Another new release in the works, so new that we don't have a catalogue number for it, it a Coca Cola version of the much-loved VW Split Screen Van, complete with a Coke bottle on the roof and again 1/76.
Also glimpsed today were a pair of new 1/76 JCB models - the millionth machine made of the JS220, on the right in the photo next to the first release, and the second version of the JCB 3CX, this time in Army green - and the latest version of the Land Rover Lightweight in 1/43 scale of Fred Dibnah's own vehicle, big brother to the 1/76 scale version reviewed in the February issue of Diecast Collector.
There is plenty more to come from both London and Nuremberg toy fairs so be sure to pick up a copy of the April issue of Diecast Collector, on sale 1st March! Pre-order your copy by clicking here.
