Ox­ford Diecast

Ox­ford’s 1:43 range is pro­gress­ing nicely, with the same Bri­tish nos­tal­gia feel as its pop­u­lar 1:87 diecasts. This Firenza evokes Spot-On toys in feel, with well ap­plied de­cal de­tails and rea­son­able de­tail. The Firenza’s un­usual shape is cap­tured well, and the badges are high enough res­o­lu­tion to ac­cu­rately de­pict the dis­tinc­tive script. At this price though, it would be nice to see multi-part clear and chrome lights at the rear. But mud­flaps are a nice touch. Ox­ford’s strength is in iden­ti­fy­ing mod­els that have lit­tle or no rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the mar­ket­place, and the Firenza is a great sub­ject. Yet we can’t help but feel that more com­po­nent de­tail is jus­ti­fied for this cost.
