Oxford Diecast – 2016/17 Announcement

By Maz Woolley

Oxford Diecast officially released information about the models that we will see during the remainder of 2016 and into the first quarter of next year. This release includes a mixture of new castings, recoloured ones, and the gradual migration of existing models into other scales.

Some of the items that have caught the editor’s eye include a new 1:18 Heinkel Trojan Bubblecar which one hopes will make it into 1:43 and 1:76 at some point. There are four new 1:87 US cars including a pre-war Buick Special. In 1:43 scale the new Rolls Royce Corniche Convertible  will surely be popular. In 1:76 there are a whole series of new models including modern facelifted Range Rovers, the F-Pace Jaguar, and for classic car collectors the MGB, Triumph TR4 and Stag. The Leyland Sherpa van finally appears in 1:76 scale – it would be nice if this was made in 1:43 as well at some point.

Military collectors are far from neglected with some new Land Rover variants as well as the first Tank Oxford have offered, a Churchill Mark III well suited to the tank transporter already in their range. And finally Aircraft collectors will find new items to choose from too.

The compete listing is included below for readers. It is great news for collectors that Oxford go on investing in new castings as well as producing new and attractive variations on existing models.

Readers who which to see the drawings of the new models and UK prices these can be found at www.oxforddiecast.co.uk in the section showing 2016-2 releases.
