New 70's Cars in 1/76
ModelZone have a sale on just now. The Oxford 1/76 Ford Consul is £1.99. I picked up two in store yetserday to add to my Winter of '79 'streets' collection. They'll end up either repainted or distressed. The Airfix 1/76 is only £3.99. They're out of stock onluine but may be worth checking with your local store.
Checking through the ModelZone webpage for similar bargains I saw that Oxford is bringing out several new 1970's cars in 2013. Permission to shout Bravo! at an annoyingly loud volume.
Bit of a memory trip for me. There's the Vauxhall Viva, the Morris Marina, the Leyland Princess and what appears to be a first generation Ford Fiesta. As usual with Oxford they come in a range of the 'official' colours of the time.
This helps fill a very nice void in the 1/76 diecast car market. Most of the cars available on the market till now were either 50's - 60's or late eighties onwards. Perfect if you are a fan of 70's cop shows like us.More so if you want to game Geezers in Winter of '79 on the tabletop.
