  • Triang - Charles Shave

    Posted by TAFF OXFORD
    Amazingly I spoke to Charles last week. He is well and despite what many said he is alive - he was unwell, which is why for three years he was not contactable. When I spoke to him he was in China, he was preparing to work. So our search for him has finished - we look forward to an exciting future......
  • A New South Wales

    Posted by TAFF OXFORD

     

     

    I have been asked by many ,what this post is about.

    It's about my past. I have found my roots and where I came from - I wasn't really sure until quite recently. On the one side of my family I knew a lot, as I spent a lot of early years with my grandfather (maternal side), he was a great man and was awarded the MBE, but I never knew my own father, as he died when I was very young - I have no memories of him, which has always been difficult. Recently finding out about my fathers history and where he came from in the Rhondda Valley has created a lot of energy in me. Finding a history in the coal industry - Colliery Firemen, Engine Drivers, Coal Weighers and Colliery Cashiers -  shouldn't have surprised me. Everyday I discover more about the hardship of those times, I reflect on the inequality that exists in our lives today.

    I have a distant memory of a Davy Lamp with 1909 engraved upon, it celebrated the birth of my father, a tradition in those times. I draw strength from this memory.

    It has created Hwyl in my heart - I fear nothing for the times ahead.

    The Past Is Hidden Form Me Now

    His past is hidden from me now.
    But be quite clear I make this vow.
    To find the truth of why he went.
    Those buried thoughts that he has sent.

     

    The steam, the dust, which filled his eyes.
    The coal, the sweat, that made him cry.
    The heat, the smoke, which made him die.
    Oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why...

     

    Who is this man that I can't see.
    Who is this man who lives in me?
    His life was short and didn't last.
    An engine driver from the past.

     

    How did he look - was he strong.
    Did he die, or am I wrong?
    The truth is there for me to find.
    And so this story will unwind.

     

    His orphan son, who fathered me.
    The orphan son I didn't see.
    The past unknown for far too long
    So now I'll try to right that wrong

     

    I bare my soul to all of you.
    For all these things that I will do.
    To bring to you these things in me.
    From both these men I'll never see.

  • Oxford Diecast Release 2 2017 Content

    Posted by TAFF OXFORD

    Here is an update to our release programme Q2/2017 (June-September 2017). The catalogue will be released around mid June 2017

    June to September 2017 Diecast Release Programme Catalogue

    1:18 Scale

    The 1:18 Heinkel is not too far away and here’s the latest image of 18HE001 in Roman Blue, along with the 18MBC005 in Polar White.

    148 N Scale

    Many will be aware that we were are late on a whole group of products in the N Scale range. It will be quiet over the next 4/6 weeks, but then they will all progressively become available over the next 3/4 months.

    Here are some updates of already announced N Scale vehicles.

    NTRAIL006 Mobile Trailer Buns on Wheels NVOL4006 Volvo FH4 Walking Floor A W Jenkinson



    There is a perfect storm brewing for N scale enthusiasts, not just due to the arrival of those late items, but because we didn’t stop the development of further products. There are new further items being announced today, you will see a further 5 ½ items – the tanker being an addition to the haulage range, which I call a ½ model. We also have the Burlingham Seagull which technically makes it 6 ½ as I forgot to mention this in the past releases. The new items are all fully tooled – I didn’t want to announce these until the previous items were imminent so no hold ups with these.

    The 1:43rd Austin Ruby had a small problem with the suitcase on the rear, the original CAD looked OK, but I overlooked the detail required. On the decorated samples, it was very apparent that it was not good enough. So what we had to make a modification, not only to the look, but also the componentry, as it was a both visual and structural problem. This is what I approved on the original CAD for the Ruby. The CAD looks sort of OK.

    Changing this suitcase after the tools had been cut is not the easiest and didn’t make me the most popular person. Another lesson in spending just a bit longer reviewing the CAD.

    So this was the Ruby updated suitcase CAD.

    These are the updated shots, I also show a picture of the sprue, with the recut components, so more cost for us, but it needed to be right.

    We went back to our traditional way of making a handmade pattern for this 1:76 JCB 3CX. We did this as we couldn’t find a surviving vehicle, so we have used diagrams, drawings etc.

    I was sent a copy of a review of one our gift sets. It went along the lines of ‘I am not sure why anyone would want to buy sets like this which include vehicles that have already been released in the past’. Not everyone understands the market we are in and the customers who buy our products. Also for Coca Cola, these are some updated images.

    Also we add this Coca Cola 1:76 scale addition, some would argue that I missed it on the last release – I don’t think so, I am far too organised for that…

    Those of you who follow Oxford Rail will be aware that we are tooling the Sherman as a companion for the Warwell, in the Oxford Rail range it comes as it arrived into the UK during World War II as new. In the Diecast range they are liveried up with authentic markings. So the Rail version has a large box on the back.

    Oxford Structures

    Just a note now on Oxford Structures The new and initially modest range of buildings offers the modeller a selection of finely detailed resin moulded buildings that are painted to a truly exacting standard. This new Oxford Structures range of buildings has been separated into two distinct groups. The first could be simply described as domestic buildings and grouped under the Oxford Structures heading of Town and Country. The initial range will consist of two shops, a 1930’s style bungalow, plus a thatched cottage. Also included is a beautifully styled country church and of course the obligatory Pub! Closer to the railway tracks we have sought inspiration from the Great Western Railway with superb model example of a characteristic Station as well as suitable platform sections. There is a Signal Box, a truly impressive Water Tower and a Goods Shed. And what collection of railway buildings would not be without a single track Engine Shed. All these models carry the distinctive design DNA of the GWR and each detailed model has been carefully crafted to capture the real essence of ‘Gods Wonderful Railway’. You can get more information in the coming days from the Oxford Rail website.

    As an example this is the OS76R005 Water Tower/Crane GWR – Oxford Structures
