Q1 2018? That's a bit ambitious. I will be buying the Hillman Imp, but do you ever see XF Jags in the Lake district?

Still waiting for the "New Mini" then, which is the only item (ordinary car) I would want for Allanbrae.  Jag a bit too posh.
Might find room for an Imp on Portpatrick, though it is stretching the period a bit.

Still awaiting the New Mini, the MGB, and the three farm trailers. Now have to add the Jag to the list, but would prefer another colour (red Mini, red MGB....)

Of course the big question with all of these future releases, is how far off is that 'Future'? Seems to be a moveable feast so far.

I'd take an Imp, in fact any car I recognise from the late 70s to mid 80s...

"The military pattern Land Rover could be a Warwell/Warflat load. Think the Churchill tank is probably out of gauge."

the Military area  (@tank) thinks they were designed for warflats

It seems to me that the 80s and 90s are very poorly represented. We're not helped by the near invisibility of Ford, whose position as a household name and well known global brand isn't proportionally translated in N. We have Ford livery rolling stock from Peco and Minitrix. We have carflats inbound. We have everything we need to model flows to/from a Ford plant except for Ford cars!

This is my observation. This is not me attacking manufacturers, who I realise can't produce everything just as I couldn't (afford to) buy everything.

I agree with you guys about the lack of commonplace vehicles from the 70s to date.

Now I model the early 1950s and would like a bit more for my era. That said I do feel for you modellers of later decades.
You will never keep all happy, but I cannot be alone in wondering why there are such glaring gaps in vehicles, and why some that have been produced made it to production.

One (of many) omissions that always puzzles me is the Bristol K and L type buses (double and single deck respectively) with E.C.W. bodywork. Produced from the 40s many were in service until the mid 70s. With bus companies Nationalised in 1948 these vehicles were found all over the U.K. in prestigious numbers.

The mind does boggle at some of the releases, whilst people are crying out for many bread and butter types. Allegros, Marinas, Princess, Escort, Cortinas, Capris, Viva's etc etc.

                     Not my era but these would surely please many and be good sellers.

It will be interesting to see what models the NGS comes up with if they proceed to 'populate' their carflats.................

Perhaps a simple poll by decade, of the membership, is called for?

Most of Oxfords market is collectors who seen to prefer the more exotic or commercials and buses.There for in n gauge a lengthy production run helps as then you can sell over a longer time frame thus Beetles ,Minis ,2CVs and Morris Minors prevail as their production runs exceed twenty years where the average family car would have significant changes every 4 or 5

I agree. Oxford have had a Cortina on their "upcoming" model list for ages, but as yet, no sign of the beast. A must-have vehicle for anyone modelling the 1970s. A Sierra would be a really good 1980s choice, as would a Austin Metro, in some ways the quintessential high-mileage hatchback of the era. And am the only one who'd want to see a Sinclair C5 on his layout, too?

Most of Oxfords market is collectors who seen to prefer the more exotic or commercias and buses.
That makes some sense, but do collectors really collect N gauge model cars? They aren't particularly detailed and most look pretty generic compared with the model cars produced at larger scales. The 1:76 scale ones have much nicer detailing and the price differential is insignificant, a couple of quid, if that, for the cars. On top of that, the boxes they come in are almost the same size, so it's not like you'd be saving a massive amount of shelf space!

Cheers, NeMo
