Oxford Diecast Chipperfields vehicles

The recent conversation Res the legal problems, meant that when I saw this at Kempton toy fair this AM, I had to have it!,





The question Now’ is what other vehicles might be available, or were they all binned?

AFAIK the horsebox was the only one that was legal, all the rest are very expensive collectors items.   :(

The horsebox was the only 1/148 scale Chipperfields vehicle. The rest were 1/76 scale and all have been withdrawn from the Oxford range following the court ruling.

I have a bookazine from W.H.Smith on Circus vehicles that demonstrates the wide and varied vehicles that were used...ex this and that, even buses.

I cannot understand why Oxford do not use castings they already have to create a fictitious Circus/FunFair range. This could even create boxed set opportunities with even a big tent /fairground stalls.  Maybe it's just me...?

Hornby Skaledale, Corgi and Oxford have all attempted this in 1/76 with quite extensive ranges. All have foundered, including the most recent Billy Smarts range from Oxford. I think it is marginal interest in N although I can see the miniature figure and animal ranges getting a boost if it ever happened.
