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.

This forthcoming Bentley MK VI, using Jersey reg. J 1733 was a car starring in the detective series Bergerac, according to O.D. Here O.D., having already launched this model in 1/76 scale, is making a mistake. The real car does not have the dark grey bonnet, but has the rear wheel arches in that color.

Thank you for those Ecclesey, some interesting models there from Oxford coming up, they're certainly getting their moneys worth from the Bentley MK VI casting but they all look superb.
