Please don't tell me that out there some obscure company with laywers on speed dial still retains the intellectual property rights e.g. for the Austin Allegro  :confused1:  :confused2:

(Not that I'm demanding anyone goes out and makes one at their own risk, of course)

Know what you mean about the Allegro. Unremarkably Oxford's is licensed by the British Motor Heritage Limited and Nanjing Automobile (Group) Corporation who have the IPO rights to many of the old BMC and Leyland designs. Surely you would not want anyone to be "passing off" the Allegro as their own concept car, would you?

Memory jogged at the mention of the Allegro.....

One day, about the early 1980's I visited the familial home for a get-together. Dad had a new car.
Sis had a new car.
Older brother had a new car.
All parked in a line outside the house.
All the same colour - beige.
All Austin Allegro's.

 :goggleeyes: :o :confused1: :worried:

It's at times like that that I wonder if I was a foundling. :D

As newer items are released it seems that Oxford Diecast are adding more photos of the actual models to the website product pages. Here is the example of the recent fire appliance release which includes a side view against a measure to judge the scale better.
