New 4mm scale trucks from Oxford

Oxford enters into the world of trucks.

Oxford Diecast trucks

SEVERAL EXCITING NEW additions to the Oxford Diecast range of 1:76.2 scale road vehicles (perfect for 4mm scale) has been brought to our attention courtesy of Modern Structures in Miniature.

The first represents a present day truck in the form of a Scania R420 tractor unit in 6×2 configuration with a 45ft ‘Tautliner’ curtain-sided trailer. One of the most common lorry combinations on British roads.

Amongst the initial liveries to be reproduced is the green, red and white of Fagan & Whalley (pictured here), a Lancashire based road haulier (Cat Ref. SCA01CS). This is a limited edition of 2,000 pieces.

Next up will be the Scottish firm Pollock Scotrans Ltd (turquoise/red/white), which incorporates a tartan aspect to its finish! Like all the new Oxford trucks, this will also be a limited edition.
