Thanks fior the tip. I have located a couple of buses and six different versions of a Horsman Tram in efe. I'll have a look at Atlas Corgi. A Happy New Year to all.

Re my above post. It's not Horsman, but Horsfield Trams. The Crossley Bus mentioned above is one I rode on when I was at school and shows its Leeds registration nº. The EFE bus does not.

Following the announcements at the 2013 London Toyfair more new castings in all scales are now shown on the "Recent additions" section of Hattons website.

Thanks for the info, just look at Hattons site, one of the items is a container lift/reach stacker manufacture by Konecranes. I would expect to find them on everyone layout,s who has containers.

Fantastic to finally see the modern trucks shrunk to 1:148, and they're doing Scanias first. Fantastic!

I've looked on the Hatton's and the Oxford web sites and can't find any thing about new releases. Can some one provide a link?

Though there's still a lot outstanding from the 2011/12 programme, of course. Still, BSA with sidedcar, Allegro estate and a Lotus Evora are an typically Oxford mix n'match in 4mm scale - but Vauxhall Corsa is a vague description - which one? Looking forward to the Plaxton Panorama in N!

There are some other models from Oxford, A Commer PB van in BR yellow and a series II Land Rover. There is also a OO gauge series II Land Rover with flanged wheels from a company called Golden Valley Hobbies (unmotorised).

There's supposed to be a J4 coming from Classix, it was announced at least a year ago. I wonder though what's happening with Classix as there has been no new issues for quite a while.

Hattons are now showing new catalogue for Pocketbond "Classix" 2013/14 the answer might be inside it?

Thanks for that, I've now done so. The new series II Land Rover is a LWB in British Railways livery going by the illustration.

What Facebook account? There doesn't seem to be this sort of problem for Dapol's announcments there.

- but Vauxhall Corsa is a vague description - which one?

 

That's what I thought too.  Both the Corsa B (1993 - 2000) and Corsa C (2000 - 2006) are are high on my wish list and therefore I would happily buy several of either, but the current Corsa D (produced since 2006) is a little too modern (although I could justify one). Unfortunately, I can't find any details elsewhere to confirm, so I will just have to wait and see what turns up unless Oxford become more specific when they update their website.

 

Interestingly an earlier version of Globe indicated 50 new sets of tooling, and I don't think that many new models have been announced, so hopefully there is more to come: a Ford Focus Mk I remains top of my wish list for now.

 

Regards

Mine too, as I drive the real thing.

 

I'm quite excited to see the Mk1 Fiesta and Mini 1275GT, they'll both be suitable for my proposed late 1970s layout, as could the Lotus Elite, depending on which Elite they're modelling.

The Vauxhall Corsa is the current model.

Given how long things like the Princess have taken it will be interesting to see if they will get it out before the replacement model is unveiled this Autumn!

(Not that I'm quick, of course :whistle: )

Searched online, but can't find any info on this release. There is a whitemetal kit in 1/76, and I have a Spanish made SAVA J4 in 1/ 43 scale.  But I do hope the announced J4 comes to fruition
