An update of the current production expectations and new tooling releases
Eloise Davies recently circulated a communication on Oxford Diecast’s social media pages, bringing us an update of the current production expectations, whilst also detailing the new tooling releases expected shortly.
“Some of you may be aware of the position we face with importation into the UK. Shipping rates remain inflated and continue to increase as well as a shortage of space. We are hesitant to pass on these inflated costs to the end customer. I would like to apologise for the delays in release of new products that we are experiencing due to this. We will not be announcing product for release while we catch up due to the delays which are out of our control. We aim to release further items in September.”
With regards to product development, “We continue to push through, and the development of new product is underway.” There have been detailed updates posted on the company’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/oxforddiecast, and particularly worthy of highlighting here are the three new Land Rover models due anytime now – 76ND90001 New Defender 90 in Pangea Green(above, right), 76ND110001 New Defender 110 in Indus Silver (above, left) and 76ND110X001 New Defender 110X in Gondwana Stone (above, centre) - all in 1/76 scale.
“You may notice a change in our website, while we restructure our on line store. This has been many months of hard work with the aim to provide a quicker shipping speed and improved services. It also will allow membership to be easily renewed and your discounts as a member easily viewed while in checkout. For existing members, to continue using your membership for online purchases, you will be prompted to create an account via email. If anyone has any queries or questions regarding this, we are happy to answer via our Head Office number: 02038 877802.
“We do have Christmas Model planned for Platinum Members - AEC Matador. Due to the success of our Remembrance Day model 2020, we have a new Ambulance releasing this year, (76MA007). Keep your eyes peeled for our special Scania celebrating the NHS. (76SNGOOS). Both of these models allow us to make a donation to local charities which will be announced closer to the release date.”
