Retailers now have the June releases in stock.

Looking at the photos of the fuel tanker on Hattons I felt there was an excessive distance between the cab and the tank, but a check of the many online images shows several exactly like the Oxford model.

Just received from Hattons

Tanker is a nice model, plus the new colours for the MG and Cortina

Took the opportunity to buy the new Mini in white and Scania bus

Nice. :thumbsup: The tanker is really very nice. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Surely the Cortina is too tiny though?

I think we forget how much smaller cars were in the 70s, if anything the MG may be over scale

I have checked other Oxford models and they have been to scale with the only exception being the Mercedes ice cream van where the dimensions are all over the place

True. :beers:

Probably doesn't help having the (anything but) Mini in the middle. :D

Each year Oxford Diecast publishes a review of the previous calendar year., showing the items released across all scales. The 2017 edition has just been published and illustrates 296 catalogue reference numbers, plus the various Globe magazines, catalogues and reviews published.

The breakdown by scale is:-

1/148    42  (14%)
1/72      21  (7%)
1/76    190 (including 12 sets of 3, 5 or 10 vehicles) (64%)
1/87      12 (4%)
1/18       3  (1%)
1/43     28  (9.5%)

The 1/148 scale analysis is:-

11   Buses, coaches, and bus company vehicles, including 2 sets contaning 5 buses
9    Cars
3    Agricultural
3    Emergency Services
2    Vans
11  Large commercials/HGVs
3    Military


Although Oxford Diecast celebrates its 25th anniversary this year it has really only been very active in the ranges we see today for about 13/14 years. It lists 4520 items in its range, of which 398 are in 1/148 scale. Only 30 of the 1/148 scale items are sold out, the mix of which can be seen in this link.

https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/collections/1-148?constraint=out-of-stock


So far in 2018, 21 items have been released to the market in 1/148 scale..

Thanks Mike.

I keep hoping they will release their OO version of Ivo's Bentley in N gauge...

Just a reflection on yesterday's Oxford release batch. Across all scales there are 56 catalogue references, 39 are completely new, and 17 are reissues of previous releases. Of the 39, 6 are from entirely new tooling, 2 are sets of 5 Austins and 5 Triumphs in previously released colours, and 31 are new colours/liveries on existing shapes.


The N totals are 9 items released, 5 completely new references, and 4 re-issues of items otherwise going out of stock:-

NAP003  Austin Princess(late) - Carlton grey/light grey
NLAN188010   Land Rover Series 1 - Rover Fire Service
NMB001   Mercedes Actros with curtainside trailer - Eddie Stobart
NMN001   Austin Mini - tartan red with Union flag on roof


At the moment Oxford have almost 500 items in development for release through to 2020, over half of them not yet announced. Must be all those 1/148 scale 1970s- 1990s cars they are keeping up their sleeves. ;-)


Makes me wonder how they keep track of it all when I have so many half-finished projects, some of which I am sure I have forgotten about completely.

The five recent releases are now illustrated on the Oxford website with all round illustrations in each item description ( except for the Burlingham Seagull coach)

https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/collections/new-in?constraint=1-148

Some of the photos show an amazing level of detailing, but also emphasise a crudeness when viewed at full screen size which is not so evident when viewing the actual model.

Here is a photo of some of the newer releases

Good to see that Oxford have got the scaling a lot better on the Mercedes ambulance than the over scale ice cream van
