Oxford Land Rovers and Range Rovers at 1:76 scale.

Oxford Land Rovers and Range Rovers at 1:76 scale.

I had many replies to my last blog about the Ford Capri and my appeal for help in choosing a new car (new or second-hand). I just couldn’t reply to everyone, my apologies, I will now narrow it down from around 150 options, so I will think on….

Many asked to me to consider buying a vehicle that had been modelled by Oxford. Peter in Bristol suggested ‘any Land Rover’, which morphed into a discussion about how many models we have released at 1:76 scale. Oxford has produced more variations of Land Rovers/Range Rovers than any other company at several different scales – 1:43, 1:148 and by far the largest 1:76 – so how many variants have we produced and why?

Discovery 1 CAD New Land Rover Discovery 1 in tooling latest CAD 

My fascination for Land Rovers started when I went to the local toy shop in Swansea with my mother aged around 9, I had saved up my pocket money for weeks. I chose the Corgi Lions of Longleat set which was well over my budget, so I borrowed the balance from my brother. There was something magical about that set, not only the Land Rover, but also the lion’s den and of course the lions themselves – each having a joint of meat. Over the next few years I built up a small collection of Land Rovers and would line them up, around 10 of them, what fascinated me the most were the small variations. Another favourite was Dakari, I had the Gift Set 7, but the Gift Set 14 was far too expensive for me.

Many would assume that the DB5 or Batmobile were the highest volume diecast vehicles that were produced by Mettoy, this is not true as it was the Land Rovers. The early tooling was often cannibalised and updated to a new version. Slides being altered to change ‘flat sides’ of the Series I, to the curved sides that are on the Series II.

Oxford has produced around 5 million Land Rovers, but how many different 1:76 variations and colour schemes? Listed below are what I think all of the Oxford releases are.

This is what I think the variations at 1:76 are – 205 range items, 21 sets, 25 promotional items, 14 range items announced but not released and 2 unreleased sets.

So the different variants at 1:76 scale are 230 with 14 more to come. That  does not include the few that I must have missed, any help in identifying these would be most appreciated. Of course we also have a lot more on our forward schedules for announcement at a later date. However it is getting more difficult to create new tooling as the options we have are becoming limited!

So first the 205 released range items.

Taff, have these articles and online ‘Globe’ replaced the posted copies since the change in ownership?

Ian McGrath - October 4, 2021

Hi Taff, love your models have lots and lots of them, trying to convince my wife that they
multiply in the display case.
It is a pity that we don’t always see them all in Australia.
I was thinking the other day that now you produce the Ford Zephyr in its Mk2 and Mk3 form is there any possibility of producing a Z Cars set for those of us old enough to remember the TV show.
All the best from the land down under.

Philip Cottle - October 2, 2021

Hi Taff,
I too had the Dakari Land Rover set, still got pieces of it now. Would be nice to get a reproduction in 1/76 scale. Any new variants on the breakdown truck ie AA/RAC or different colour schemes and may in a Ford transit variant would be welcomed.
As a kid I had a few in Police livery, any forthcoming releases in the pipeline.

Thanks for all the great models you’ve produced over the years.
Kind Regards
Keep safe
Phil

Bryan Gill - October 2, 2021

Hi Taff,
Will you be releasing the “Land Rover transport set “ again as it shows as sold out ?

LORD- ROY M WELLS - October 1, 2021

SO MANY LANDROVERS, AND I ONLY HAVE COUPLE. ANY LANDIES AS USED BY BUS COMPANIES THEN THATS FOR ME. ALSO WHEN ARE THERE GOING TO BE MORE OLD FORDS? MODELS B, Y, C, ANY V8s PILOTS ETC OR PREWAR ONES. SOON PLEASE BEFORE US OLDIES DIE AND THESE VEHICLES WILL BE FORGOTTON. AND BECAUSE NOSTALGIA FOR US IS A BIG THING. THE CARS YOU MAKE FROM THE THIRTIES, AUSTIN 7s ETC ARE JUST GREAT
YOURS ETC ROY.

David Watson - October 1, 2021

I have previously requested a long wheel based version in bright orange with white roof used in Commonwealth countries all around the world. I was told I needed a sample of the licence plate and of the local crest of one in Sierra Leone in the 1958-63 period. While transferring my late father’s slides and negatives, to computer files, I have found end views, but no side ones. I ask again that you introduce a model without a crest, while all those, who remembered using them as a child, such as myself, are still alive to appreciate the model as a keepsake. Given the scale size of any crest, its omission would not decrease the memories.
Stay safe,
Dave Watson,
Kitchener, Ontario, Canada

Mark Saville - October 1, 2021

I’m really looking forward to the release of 76LAN88024 Plimsoll with railway wheels. Any update on when this might happen?

Ken Hatcher - October 1, 2021

Taff One of the ‘ultimate’ please, Duke of Edinburgh"s hearse, that should head of the ’list should you do proceed.
May I be one of the first !!!! regards Ken in [West Australia]

Robin French - October 1, 2021

I never fails to amaze me how many (excellently detailed) models you produce

Andrew Marchant - October 1, 2021

Thanks for the post and the huge list Taff! Quite a few were missing from my list so the info is much appreciated.

However I think your list is missing:

76SET58 – RAF Centenary Set with Lightweight (76LRL005), Defender 110 (76DEF013), Range Rover TACR2 (76TAC006) plus Spitfire and Bedford(?) truck OR76ROR002B – Reproduced variant of OR76ROR002 with different number plate (2=SV51 WGD, 2B=R494 JGG) OR76ROR003B – Reproduced variant of OR76ROR003 with different number plate R7030 – Series 1 88 Hard Top Skalais Estates (sold as Skale Autos by Hornby) R7031 – Series 1 88 Tilt light green (sold as Skale Autos by Hornby) R7057 – Series 1 88 Hard Top Ready Mixed Concrete Specialists (sold as Skale Autos by Hornby) R7151 – Series 1 109 pick up with frame (sold as Skale Autos by Hornby) SP028 – Brantho Korrux set with Series 1 88 hard top Forsterei in olive green plus blue/white VW minibus and red/silver tractor (German-only promo, I’ve only ever seen 2 sets for sale)

(Also for Tom Lawton – the Donkey Sanctuary 110 is SP080 and is in Taff’s list above)
