Oxford diecast number plates
« on: March 02, 2019, 05:22:46 PM »
Now tell me if this is classed as extreme, I will take it personally  :veryangry:

Has ANYONE gone to the trouble of changing the number plates on any of their Oxford diecast trucks??

I have 3 which are all to be carrying varying quantities of loads but naturally all 3 carry the same number plate. Should I find something better to be worried about??

 :helpneededsign: maybe of the white coats variety   :worried:

Definitely extreme Craig. :D

Mores the point, you should not have number plates that postdate your period.
ABC123A to - XYZ789D were issued every year from 1 Jan 1963. E plates are fewer in number as they only ran for part of 1967, and then F plates form April 1967 on.
And if you have any Italian cars on your model they should be prototypically rusty round the wheel arches and the sills. in fact everywhere!

A number of coach companies use personal number plates to disguise  the age of their vehicles , I have seen this trend now moving to lorries.

I don't think just Italian cars rusted in the 60's..... my Dad had a Morris Oxford  that if you lifted the mat up you could see the road go by  :D
