Oxford Shows Why Its a Force to be Reckoned With in 2015

DT001

Oxford revealed details concerning some of their newest diecast military vehicles and aircraft collectors can expect to see well into 2015. On the ground, look forward to monkeying around with a 1:76 scale replica of a Diamond T tank transporter that was used throughout the ETO during WWII.

AC055

In the air, several warbirds were unveiled, including Alexander Pokryshkin’s world-famous P-39 Airacobra that was employed on the eastern front. Please keep in mind that many of these items aren’t slated to hit the market until well into 2015, making them tantalizing if unattainable additions for several months running.

Oxford Does Its Homework and Adds Several New Fan Favorites

AA001

Never one to shy away from a daunting challenge, Oxford announced plans to add several interesting subjects to their line of Oxford Aviation aircraft. A number of new warbirds will be coming out in early 2014, among them a Japanese Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-kai “George” Fighter, USN Grumman Avenger Torpedo-Bomber that was piloted by former President George Herbert Walker Bush, and a German Hs 126A-1 Reconnaissance Aircraft. In their History of Flight range, look forward to seeing an RAF Avro Anson twin-engine multi-role aircraft, no doubt a key addition to any enthusiast’s military aircraft collection.

All of the new aircraft have been added to our site, and we anticipate several new 1:76 scale military vehicles will also be announced in the coming days.

Oxford Grouses, “Oscar, Oscar, Oscar”

AC039

As 2013 continues to grind forward, we’ve learned that Oxford Diecast will be expanding its line of 1:72 scale budget-priced aircraft this summer. Several repaints will be offered, but more importantly a number of new aircraft will join the fray, including a Japanese Nakajima Ki-43 “Oscar” fighter (#OXFAC039). Also in development is a German Henschel Hs 123A dive-bomber, a biplane that saw service in WWII well beyond its intended service life (#OXFAC040). Although the pre-order window has now opened for these and other new entries, keep in mind they aren’t expected until June, at the earliest.
