We're delighted to announce that the very popular Oxford Diecast have agreed to host their forum on Toy Collector. Here's where you can discuss Oxford Diecasts past and present, ideas for new models you'd like to see and more. Oxford Diecast themselves will be stopping in from time to time, but please note that you can't use the forum to communicate directly with them if, for example, you've ordered a model that hasn't arrived yet or anything like that.

Oxford Diecast 10 years, 7 months ago #1

Wow am I ever impressed by Oxford Diecast - I think they\'re some of the nicest models I\'ve seen for ages. Even more so for being diecast and not white metal. I hadn\'t seen any up close before the Nuremberg show, but now I need to go and buy some!!! In the meantime, does anybody have any that they can show on here?

only on eBay... but with so many themes you know how it is.

our local hobby shop has a couple.

detailing on diecast models have improved so much in the past few years.

OK< I need that wrecker! Are they all 76th scale, or do the scales cover a wider range?

I have to make pictures.

I have a Royal Daimler DS420 (1/43)

I will recieve, as soon it will be available, the Royal (Austin) Princess.

I saw the Princess in red livery. It\'s really Marvelous and a real bargain regarding quality.

See you soon with pictures.

To me Oxford is the name to follow. Beautiful and original models in the 1/75 range.
I really wish the same ones in 1/43 scale.

These are wonderful! The Princess looks great in two-tone grey. What year is that one?

I will be buying the Cresta Estate as soon as it hits the shops!

George Digby in Woluwe, Belgium.

Wow, I must be looking in the wrong places! We saw the Cresta at the Nuremberg Toy Fair and really liked it and have been looking out for it ever since, but hadn\'t found it anywhere - I just saw that they\'ve now shown up on eBay, so must go buy one!
